Time Warner set to bring Internet video content to home TVs Although it has previously disclosed it displeasure with the fact that broadcasters have been making their shows available on the Internet for free, it seems the company is doing an about-face on the matter and is looking to gain market share.
Time Warner has announced that it will be releasing a wireless modem device that "will make streaming internet video content on ones TV much easier." The wireless modem will supposedly link all the devices in a person's home.

There was no timeframe for the device's release but the company did say it would probably be 15 months or so until it became popular.

Time Warner would have to compete in the steadily growing market for set top boxes, which is now led by Apple and Netflix.

We will keep you updated.

Not that I know many people who have set top boxes anyway. Actually, i don't know any people who have set top boxes at home, or anywhere else for that matter.

Wouldn't it be easier/cheaper to buy a video card with extra outputs and connect that to your tv?

Free? About face? No! This is the company that wants to put a cap on the amount of GBs one can download a month.

No thanks TW. I'll stick to my DSL and DirectTV.

many times, many people would love to work at the Co-Op. I don't see ANY rosaen to employ anyone who doesn't take PRIDE in their work. Also, cashiers are the FACE of the Co-Op. If they don't care about us, why should we care about the Co-Op?Of course you know how much I love the Co-Op. But can we really afford to give anyone a rosaen not to come back?Thank you.
