Briefs: Yahoo! to offer television service

Jan 06, 2006

Yahoo! said Friday it will launch a television integration service in the near future.

The Yahoo!Go TV will let users bring their Internet functions including video search and photos onto their television sets. Music will also be available through the service.

"This is about making Internet technology work for people in their daily lives. We want to give consumers everything they love about the web -- the open platform and the ability to find and view what they want, when they want it -- on their PC-connected television," said Marco Boerries, senior vice president of connected life at the Internet search engine.
