Television will eat its self?

All the television corps are running around trying to build solutions for the future.

New Service by TiVo Will Build Bridges From Internet to the TV
TiVo, the maker of a popular digital video recorder, plans to announce a new set of Internet-based services today that will further blur the line between programming delivered over traditional cable and satellite channels and content from the Internet.

Interesting specially in the light of… BSkyB launches rival to Freeview
For a one-off payment of £150, it will include the BBC's digital services and Sky News as well as other free stations. But unlike Freeview, a satellite dish will be needed to pick up the service.

Good luck with the Broadcast Treaty at the World Intellectual Property Organization

Wipo globe icon

On Sunday I passed Cory sitting on the grass at notcon04. And wished him good luck at the WIPO, I think the EFF and others are going to need it for all our sakes… If you honestly dont know what I'm talking about please – i beg of you to read this now.

As usual there has been little about an important issue in the mainstream news. Cory Doctorow and others have been raising awareness but few have picked up on it so far. Slashdot also had a posting yesterday which started the usual slashdotting discussion.

The best way I've found to keep intouch with whats going on is through the union for public domains blog on broadcasting. The EFF page is good for a understanding of whats at sake but not whats going on at this moment. No respect to Cory, his post was a little lost in the boingboing information ocean. But it did provide almost the same if not better links than what I got here.
