Debate Heats Over Web on TV

Feb 17, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The debate over whether and how Internet access should be available on television sets is playing out with chip makers and television manufacturers, with the former developing technology to allow it and the latter saying they don’t want it, the New York Times reports. One stumbling block may be the thin profit margins of TV manufacturers, to whom the $100 additional cost of Web technology might be unpalatable, the newspaper says. And others fear that the viruses and crashes affecting computers would hit TVs, turning off viewers, the Times says.
