There’sÂ been a lot of buzz recently about Boxee - a free software application that makes it easy to find and watch internet content on your PC.Â Boxee doesn’t just run on PCs, but also on Apple TV (an expensive box that you connect to your TV).Â This factÂ has come to the attention of the big networks who are now worried that folks won’t need their cable or satellite service anymore.Â So they forced Hulu to pull their content from Boxee.Â Â Well, I have news for the big networks - thousands of folks are already getting their entertainment delivered on their PCs.Â And with our affordable cables, more and more folks are watching internet content on their TVs.
Last week a company called ZeeVee released a new “internet videoÂ browser” called Zinc that’s pretty cool.Â It’s a free software application that you download and run on your PC and I’ve got to admit I really like it.Â They’ve done a great job of scouring all of the popular internet video sites - Hulu, CNN, YouTube, etc. - and organizing the content.Â They don’t have live streaming internet televisionÂ stations like Zipityzap, but they do offer a lot.Â The Flash-based application makes it easy to navigate with your PC’s remote control or you can use your arrow keys or mouse.
ZeeVee sells an expensive box to connect your PC to your TV.Â But fortunately you’ve discovered our more affordable PC to TV cable solution.Â But that doesn’t mean you can’t use ZeeVee’s new Zinc.Â The world is still waiting for the killer internet television application.Â Zinc is one step closer to what I’ve been looking for.Â Just wait until the big networks find out!
