Television, like every other medium of entertainment or communication, has been irrevocably changed by the Internet. It is currently in the (rather slow process) of evolving into a more connected medium. The growth in popularity of IPTV and coming of DTV are two harbingers of this change. A lot of corporations are trying to get in on the ground floor of this television revolution. Opera and GooMe are just two of them.
They've partnered together to devise an over-the-top modular web-based solution for IPTV and hybrid IP/broadcast TV delivery. Opera's browser (and mobile browser) experience, combined with GooMe's experience building OTT media solutions, make them a pretty damn good team for this sort of work. We should see some further in-use videos at CES 2010 this week, which will give us a better idea of whether or not this dream team actually managed to make a product worth using. Don't let us down, guys!
