Posted by Paul@outside5.com on Jan 6, 2009 in Digital, Technology |

Some Samsung 2009 flat-panel HDTV systems in the 2009 ranges allow viewers to access certain parts of the internet directly through their televisions, to include Flickr™, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Weather and Yahoo! Finance, and content from well-known brands, including USA TODAY®, YouTube™, eBay® and Showtime Networks® with more on its way.  The offerings are set to include video streaming and other online services.

The Samsung TV’s will support the new TV Widget service, called “Internet@TV - Content Service.” This service adapts the Yahoo! Widget Engine to allow viewers to engage in a variety of experiences, normally only accessible on a PC.

You will be able to track your stock portfolio, stay on top of headline news as well as browse through videos, share photos and interact with friends.

Users can access the service by connecting the HDTV to a home network via the built-in Ethernet port or using an optional Wi-Fi USB dongle.
