    This sound really awesome, i only watch 7 out of the 150 channels i pay for and probably another 100 of those channels are complete garbage

    I sure hope so it gets shown at CES. I only watch about 10 or so channels.

    Really good idea! I need to get MLB Network without getting other sports crap which would make my parents bill even bigger.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    Technology is not the problem. The folks providing you internet probably also provide you with t.v. what the digital set top box gives you essentially internet channels. They're happy to do it.

    Technology or not, the issue is throttling, and net neutrality. Doesn't matter how many channels you get if your ISP slows them down!

    A little misleading indeed. I can see this as competition for UVerse or xFinity (since the ISP and Cable company are the same in these cases). It will not usher in the new era of selected TV without network support. If the networks have no contracts in place with someone (you, ISP, or cable/sat company) for broadcasting we will have a legal cluster fudge. This is why people complain about Netflix having nothing current as far as TV shows and users paying Hulu to watch commercials.

    Agreed on throttling. That is more important than any media being pushed on the internet, and needs to be addressed.
