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.
