with the announcement of a new google tv set top box, there’s another reason to keep your cable or satellite tv service. logitech’s revue makes it easy to get web content on your hdtv. but there’s a catch. you can only use it with an hdtv receiver. good thing for the pay tv companies, not a great thing for consumers. sure, viewers can expand their viewing selection by being able to view content from the entire interwebs, but there is no delink from that pesky pay tv service. so for now, homebrew solutions for getting the web on tv are still the only way to get rid of your pay tv hassles.
maybe one day i will no longer have to speak with some customer service person who doesn’t give a crap that i can’t watch the only show i care about because i am getting an error. today is not that day.
