More comments from friends and colleagues who are using PC-TV connections:
Bülent Boytorun, Owner, Zap Medya Ltd., Istanbul, Turkey: “I sure do watch video online, but the quality of the content is very poor and rapidly deteriorating. As for technical solutions, Apple TV has proven to be a very practical platform for me. To have an internet-able TV source is a good solution. Content is still limited but I believe that will change in time.”
Raanan Azoulai, Director of Business Development / Legal Issues at Yedioth Internet, Tel Aviv, Israel: Well… first, I went into TVmama it looks cool. Content is good [though the homepage needs a new grid in my opinion…. but 🙂 ] and there are some big names there (Anne Holland for example), which is great.
Anyway, I hardly watch video on the web. I do not have patience for doing so, but sometimes I watch. When doing so, it is for 3-4 min (at the most) videos, in which I use my PC to watch. Even though connecting the PC to the TV screen (especially the LCD’s) is very easy, I guess we’re at the “media center preliminary stage.” If there’s a feature movie or a long video, I believe I’ll burn it to a CD and watch it using the DVD :-).
