Why would you want the TVU Player? Well, with the channel selection, if you are a fan of TV from China or Korea, this might be your thing. :-) But seriously, I can think of two reasons:
- If you are like me, you might want to have the TV on in the background as you work, such as the latest news from CNN, etc.
- Here's the most important reason: all of the major broadcast networks are here. Why is that important? FOOTBALL. Do I want to watch the "plucky" 49ers game, or the pathetic Raiders game, when the national game features the Cowboys or the Patriots? Uh, I don't THINK so. Sure, I could get DirecTV, and pay a whopping $250 to watch those games...or I could watch them online, FREE. You do the math.
It seems to work well; we'll see how well it works on Sunday...if the damned TV Networks don't catch on before then. Listen up, guys: I'd PAY to have the game of the week. Use this as a test marketing idea: partner up with these folks, monitor the shows that people watch, and offer them as HD Pay Per View!
