Last Updated May 21, 2010 11:48 AM EDT The marriage of television and the Internet has been a dream in the technology industry since 1996, when WebTV first appeared. But to date no one has combined the intelligence of the net with the sublime stupidity of television in a way that broke through to the mass market. The introduction of Google TV yesterday finally brings together a team that has the size and scope to change that. Google (GOOG) has assembled an corporate A-team that can attack the problem from all angles. Eric Schmidt led the keynote on Google TV and seated behind him were CEOs from Sony (SNE), Best Buy (BBY), Logitech (LOGI), Dish Network (DISH) and Adobe (ADBE). As Gizmodo noted, this might actually be an AA team, since there is large anti-Apple (APPL) contingent here. As managers should know, having a common enemy always builds team morale. But there are also important structural advantages to each of these team members. As my BNET colleague Damon Brown pointed out, a … [Read more...] about How Google’s A-Team Will Finally Make Web TV Work
Last Updated May 20, 2010 6:20 AM EDT My colleague Chris Dannen wrote about the possibility that Target (TGT) and Walmart (WMT) could lose the Internet TV battle to the Apple iPad. The food chain continues: Yet other companies are still creating Web devices for televisions that, in turn, will be eaten by Target and Walmart-backed TVs. One example is the new Litl Box, previewed by Gizmodo's Matt Buchanan: ...the Litl TV box ... aims to go where no man has gone before (since 1998): To turn your TV into a legit web browser with a new generation of web apps. Anybody who remembers WebTV is probably immediately skeptical of an attempt to use TV as a medium for the web. Litl says they're different though, because they want to create web apps "that offer group experiences." Okay. Litl does recognize, at least in theory, the vast gulf between web content designed for the computer, and where the TV sits, literally and metaphorically: When you're leaning back on a couch, those OS's don't work. … [Read more...] about And the Nobel Prize in Futility Goes to… Makers of New Web-TV Boxes
Last Updated Aug 25, 2010 10:29 AM EDT During the second quarter of 2010, for the first time ever, the subscription TV industry actually lost customers. So far no one is willing to attribute this drop to the growth of online viewing, but regardless of the root cause, the downturn certainly highlights a growing market for cheap, web TV alternatives, like Apple's (APPL) 99-cent a la carte show rentals. The data on subscription TV's dismal quarter comes from the research firm SNL Kagan, with cable emerging as the real victim. While satellite and telcos added customers, the cable industry lost 711,000 subscribers, resulting in a net loss of 216,000 customers across the entire industry. A poll conducted by the New York Times found that only 15% of people in the U.S. have considered replacing their traditional TV service with internet video. But it also noted that this percentage increased significantly among respondents under the age of 45. When you consider that less than 40% of viewers … [Read more...] about Subscription TV Is Dying; Long Live Web TV!
By David Wiegand Published 7:58 pm, Monday, February 26, 2018 Rowan Atkinson isn’t the first comic actor to move into a dramatic roll, but the leap is especially large as he tackles the role of the great French police detective created by Georges Simenon: Chief Inspector Jules Maigret, in four TV films making their U.S. premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 28, on the streaming service BritBox. At the outset, let’s offer Atkinson a bit of career advice: David Suchet completed adaptations of Agatha Christie’s complete “Poirot” oeuvre and few would complain if Atkinson followed suit with Maigret. He is terrific and bordering on definitive, although Maigret has been adapted often around the world, and no doubt fans will have their own favorite impersonator. If we buy into the concept that great comedy’s flip side is sadness, and we should, Atkinson brings that key element of his past comedic work to the role of Maigret, whose marriage and life have … [Read more...] about ‘Mr. Bean’ becomes a convincing ‘Maigret’ in TV films
