Whatever Happened to WebTV?
from the still-hanging-in-there dept
WebTV launched with a big splash a few years back, and while many folks laughed at it, it did quite well. However, recently you don’t hear much about WebTV, and a lot of competitors seem to be gaining ground. WebTV claims, however, that they’re not dead yet. They’re working on projects to make TV more interactive. The question I have is whether or not people really want their TVs to be more interactive. I’m pretty happy with mine when it’s in simple “couch potato” support mode.

Many people have left WebTV for startups. I heard that Perlman took a bunch of people and started developing something very similar. I believe he got his hand slapped.
