Intel, Yahoo, And Comcast Team Up To "Webify" Your HDTV

_44945071_intel-kim-and-barry-body.jpgBoth Yahoo and Comcast have called upon Intel to develop an architecture that will bring interactive widgets directly to your TV screen. In Yahoo's case, widgets will be based on the current Yahoo Widget Engine and distributed via a dedicated Widget Channel from which you can view all kinds of interactive and useful internet content such as stock prices and news reports. You'll also be able to interact with your online friends, throwing a bit of a social networking component in the HDTV mix.

Comcast is planning on building the Widget Channel on top of its tru2way platform, a next-generation cable platform that'll bring a whole new level of interactivity into your HDTV viewing.
