To Internet Or Not To Internet

The bottom line? While the Internet is an amazingly useful tool, it is not appropriate for every application - in spite of the efforts being made to tout it as such. Basic understanding of the limitations involved will help educated consumers make purchasing decisions that reflect their needs regardless of current techo-fashion trends or external market pressures.

Major Broadcasters Band Together And File A Lawsuit Against Online Video Startup Ivi.

The major broadcasters usually can’t agree on much, but they’ve agreed to band together and file a lawsuit against Ivi, claiming that the online video startup is infringing copyrights. The suit, filed in the Southern District of New York yesterday, aims to shut down Ivi’s video service, which retransmits over-the-air broadcast signals online.  Ivi’s system works by relaying live TV feeds from more than 40 broadcasters — including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and Telemundo — to online viewers. It claims to be operating under a legal loophole which says that cable and satellite companies can legally retransmit over-the-air broadcast content as long as they pay semi-annual fees to the U.S. Copyright Office. The startup says it has already applied to pay those fees, which are later distributed to rights holders.  It should come as little surprise that the broadcasters disagree with Ivi’s reading of the law, and have pressured it with cease and desist letters, calling for the startup to take down the online video service. That prompted Ivi to file a preemptive lawsuit against certain broadcasters last week.

Hulu Plus coming to Roku, TiVo Premiere

Roku today confirmed the murmurings of yesterday that Hulu Plus is coming to its trio of set-top boxes. Starting "later this fall," the $9.99-per-month service that brings on-demand movies and TV shows from NBC, Fox, ABC, and others will be available.  There is no extra fee beyond the standard Hulu Plus subscription.  This is, of course, not the only way to get Hulu on your TV: Samsung, Sony, and Vizio TVs and Blu-ray players, as well as the Xbox and PlayStation 3 will feed Hulu Plus to your TV screen, but those require a much larger purchase. Roku comes in three options now, ranging from $59 to $99. (And Roku takes about six minutes to set up.)

It's also an interesting option compared with the new Apple TV. Apple rejiggered its set-top offering to feature a rental-only service for content, including 99-cent TV shows. But for those who prefer a flat fee from Hulu versus paying for every show, Roku is making itself an intriguing alternative.  Not to be outdone, TiVo issued its own announcement minutes after Roku's. Hulu Plus will also be coming to TiVo Premiere "in the coming months." It's the same deal, subscribers who pay $9.99 a month for Hulu Plus can add it to their TiVo Premiere box for free.

Bose VideoWave: 46-inch HDTV + integrated invisible speaker system = $5,349

Bose is known for squeezing big sound out of little speakers, often for a lot of money. It may have created the ultimate version of that formula in the new VideoWave Entertainment System, which combines an HDTV with virtual surround sound speakers built into the bezel and a single console that routes video from your set-top box, Blu-ray player, and game console to the set. The VideoWave has a 46-inch 1080p LCD as its foundation, and Bose then somehow manages to fit 16 speakers into the surrounding frame, including six woofers, which are automatically calibrated for your room via Bose’s Adaptiq system. It also comes with a click pad remote that has a few buttons to cover basics like volume or channel control, but then touching the pad lets you control devices via an on-screen display that surrounds the image. The console houses four HDMI inputs, a pair of component-video ports, a USB port, and the inevitable iPod dock.
