Are You Hooked Up to a Set Top Box?

It seems that one of Matt Dentler's new roles at Cinetic Rights Management is consciousness raising.

He's asking, are we aware of what we can do with our TVs already? (In my case, I have TiVo, which means I never do VOD. And I don't have HD, although my TV is HD-ready, because I have old TiVo without broadband. One of these days I'll get a new Phillips box.)

Here's Dentler's latest posting:


You can watch plenty of films instantly through your high-speed Internet connection, without leaving your sofa. Most of the time, this is possible with a "set-top box," which is similar to your cable box. Imagine having thousands of films available at the click of your remote. You might even have one now and not know it, if you own an Xbox, Playstation 3, or TiVo. Here are some of the set-top box (and game console) contenders out there so far today:

Roku Netflix Player

Apple TV


VUDU


TiVo (Amazon downloads)


Xbox Live


Playstation Network


Stay tuned for many more coming soon.
