YahooYahoo internet-based service for Samsung HDTVs : Samsung and Yahoo! announced a new Internet-based service to Samsung HD televisions available in the spring of 2009. Select models in Samsung's HDTV line-up will be powered by the Yahoo! Widget Engine, a fifth-generation applications platform that enables HDTV watchers to interact with and enjoy a rich set of "TV Widgets." TV Widgets make it easy to interact with Internet content and services to complement and enhance the traditional TV viewing experience. The lightweight Javascript and XML applications bring content, information and community features available on the Internet within easy reach of the remote control.

Yahoo Internet TV content service
Select models in Samsung's 2009 flat-panel HDTV lines will support the new TV Widget service, called "Internet@TV - Content Service." The service, which adapts the Yahoos Widget Engine, enables users to engage in a variety of experiences that traditionally could only be enjoyed on a PC. Not only will users be able to track their stock portfolio and stay on top of headline news, but they may also browse through videos, share photos and interact with friends. Users can access the service by connecting the Samsung HDTV to a home network via the built-in Ethernet port or using an optional Wi-Fi USB dongle.

The suite of TV Widgets range from a host of Yahoo! properties, including Flickr, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Weather and Yahoo! Finance, to third-party content from well-known brands, including USA TODAY, YouTube, eBay and Showtime Networks among others. The content and services offered will grow to include video streaming and other popular internet services. Developers worldwide will be able to develop and deploy HDTV Widgets for the television by using the open-platform Widget Development Kit (WDK).

Internet-enabled TV technology
"Samsung has been a proven innovator in Internet-enabled TV technology for some time now, offering the ground-breaking InfoLink service last year in 2008. There's no denying that the easy-to-use, one-touch of the remote control service successfully provides information simply and effectively," said Boo-Keun Yoon, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Division at Samsung Electronics. He continues, "The collaboration with Yahoo lets viewers go one step further. This new interface allows them to interact and connect with many of their favorite Web services on a personal level. It's frankly way beyond just passively watching broadcasts and is no doubt the future of TV."
