pocketgpsworld.comNot an obvious news item for PocketGPSWorld at first glance. Philips recently announced a range of Internet connected TVs and it would appear that one of the services being offered is a TomTom Channel.

A Net TV allows you to browse the web from your armchair using your TV remote with websites being specially tailored for viewing through a TV. These channels are in the IP-TV format which makes them viewable at the distance commonly used for TV''s which are viewed further away than computers.

So far the list of channels includes YouTUBE, eBay and a few lesser known others but the appearance of TomTom is interesting if not altogether surprising when you consider that Philips is a Dutch company.

What will be shown on the TomTom channel is not yet known, perhaps a version of Tomtom''s Route Planner web app or a basic feed showing the Traffic situation?

Net TV appears to be the next ''big thing'' in the TV marketplace and Philips will be deploying it on their 8000, 9000 and 21:9 Cinema format models later this year. Net TV will allow you to tailor content to suit you and to watch content when it suits you. Services such as BBC's iPlayer are great in this regard but unless you have a truly unlimited Internet feed then you would be advised to keep a close eye on your data usage. Streaming video consumes bandwidth in spades and a 30Gb allowance can disappear all too quickly.

That reminds me of watching NASCAR as I do most of the time.
