A Website As A TV Channel?

from the convergence-goes-in-many-directions dept

While we were just talking about the BBC putting TV shows on the internet, here’s a story about content going in the opposite direction. It appears that South African news publisher News24 is going to make their web content available via interactive satellite TV. The channel will look just like the website, and users can “surf” using their remote control. Of course, no one has asked whether or not users actually want to receive web content on their TV, but it should be an interesting experiment.
