Web & TV: aumenta l’interesse, si allontanerà il successo ?


Pare che i costruttori di televisori proporranno le loro soluzioni per rendere i propri televisori “internet enabled”… non è che si finirà per aprire l’equivalente hardware della guerra dei browser (chi se la ricorda ?), con buona pace della fruibilità di contenuti e servizi sui diversi apparati ?

Se così fosse gli utenti non sarebbero molto felici, speriamo che i motivi di successo di Internet (standard e accessi pubblici) abbiano insegnato qualcosa…

Television makers will use the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to introduce new Internet services and blunt efforts by Google Inc. and Apple Inc. to dominate home entertainment.

Samsung Electronics Co., LG Electronics Inc. and Cisco Systems Inc., the set-top box supplier, will unveil applications starting today, signaling they won’t cede leadership to Google, Apple or other upstarts angling to get consumers to view Internet programming via TV.

“All these companies are starting to break out on their own because you can move quicker and at the same time be different by not being beholden to development partners,” said Richard Shim, senior analyst for DisplaySearch, a Santa Clara, California-based industry researcher.

More than half of TVs sold in 2014 will offer Web service, DisplaySearch said. Electronics makers consider television sets, which carry higher price tags than other devices and are the focal point of many consumers’ living rooms, a key to boosting margins and fostering brand loyalty. Controlling the first screen TV viewers see is part of that effort.
