For its share of the news in the ongoing CES 2010, Yahoo is spiking up the delivery of web content through its Widget Engine for connected TV. Yahoo has announced partnership gigs with various consumer electronics companies including Samsung, Sony, LG Electronics and VIZIO. In addition, Yahoo has also teamed up with Intel to make its Widgen Development Kit available to developers to bring in more Internet-TV applications.
Yahoo’s TV widget brings popular Internet services and online media to reach viewers with applications specifically tailored to the needs of TV watchers. In other words, it’s like having a multimedia hub that you control on your TV screen. If you’re a couch potato like me, you’d definitely want to try this one out. That is of course if you have the supported consumer electronic products from the brands we mentioned awhile back.
So, there. CES 2010 certainly brought us many new options for home entertainment. Â Which is going to be for you? Boxee Beta? Boxee Box? Pophub Box or Yahoo Connected TV? Mind you, these are just some of the new options that you can use to spice up your home entertainment system. There are definitely many more which were announced at the CES 2010.
