About TV Online

Previous Entry TV Online Apr. 13th, 2005 @ 09:47 am Next Entry
After the discussion of Red vs. Blue I began searching for other online media that continue as running series online. What I found was a plethora of online programming that was provided both free of charge and also for a monthly rate. For example Real offers a premium passs which enables you to see clips of sporting events TV shows online and many other options like music videos. Then I thought back to the new revolution of plama and HD TVs. In actuality they have been around for awhile in the form of computer monitors so why not create your online HD programming and sell it to internet users. I don't have the money to buy a TV at the exorbitant price but I do have a LCD monitor that came with my computer that is probably equivalent. Also I found annother form of new media related to TV programming and that is interactive TV shows. I love the Game Show network because it allows you to play along with the show by opening up an applet and competing against online competition. Who knows maybe someday your virtual avatar will actually be competing for a prize on the actual show.

Turn your monitor into a TV


Just a comment on the exorbitant price of HDTVs . . . if you get a new video card (if you have a desktop) from http://www.nvidia.com or http://www.ati.com , some of the new ones have HDTV support and if you get a TV tuner card, you could turn your computer monitor into a TV and get crystal clear picture, just like you do a regular TV. Pretty cool, huh?
