OTT TV zone
Malaysia's biggest telco will shortly be making its IPTV service 'HyppTV' available nationwide and outside the home with the launch of two new services - HyppTV Over Broadband and HyppTV Everywhere.
Despite a growing ownership base of Smart TVs, there is still a lack of conscious desire to use the sets to connect to the Internet, with most consumers preferring to connect their televisions to the Internet with other devices like games consoles, according to new research from UK pollsters YouGov.
Microsoft has finally presented its new Xbox to the world, describing the console as an all-in-one home entertainment system for the decade ahead that can connect to existing set-top boxes, snap between live TV and other tasks such as Web surfing and video calling (courtesy of Skype), and detect user gestures with much greater accuracy thanks to an improved Kinect peripheral so sensitive it can detect heartbeats.
Microsoft’s reveal of the Xbox One yesterday evening in Redmond signaled the culmination of its ambitions to be at the centre of the future living room entertainment landscape.
