Multimedia, AV I'm a couch potato. There, I've said it. I love sitting down and watching sci-fi movies, like any good geek would. And this is an (almost religious) action that hasn't changed for many, many, years. But I feel that we're in for a surprise soon. The way we watch TV and access content is about to change. TV watching will at last arrive into the 21st Century, and the technology giants will be there to duke it out for the reins of this new industry.

What's required is a full platform, with developer tools, and compatibility across all ranges of new TVs.

Required for who? Here we go again with geeks thinking that electronics should be designed around the needs of 1% of the population.

HDTV companies will likely cut deals with content providers like Netflix and Hulu to lower the cost of production. If you want your HDTV to do more then build an HTPC.
