What Do You Want Your TV To Do?

from the interactive-TV-still-not-here... dept

It’s baaaaaack. Every few years all the people who make money predicting things come out saying that we’re really (no, really) going to have interactive TV in the US. And it never happens. I’ve been hearing it again a lot lately, and this NY Times article looks at how interactive TV is starting to get some traction in Europe while it remains mostly a dud in the US. I still think that it’s more likely to succeed in some sort of combination with a Tivo-like device than any of the other solutions that just appear like gimmicky ways to get people to part with their money.
