Widget Channel Internet TV
Intel and Yahoo on Wednesday announced plans to launch the Widget Channel, complete with TV Widgets, which will allow users to access the Internet while watching TV, either on their TV sets or other consumer electronics devices with Intel Architecture. Users will have real-time access to a number of small Internet applications, the TV Widgets that would allow them to watch Internet videos, upload photos and videos, chatting with friends and getting weather and news updates.
Neither Intel nor Yahoo have announced when the Widget Channel is expected to debut, or any costs associated with it at the consumer level.
