OT WebTV simply is a box that allows you to surf the net while connects up to your TV. It has three drawbacks
- You can’t download
- You only get what WebTV decides you get. [example you want RA5 and they give you G2 or someething like that]
- No Java. Microsoft owns WebTV so we most likely won’t get it ever.
On my last job I worked all day with computers and the internet and this is much cheaper and anything I couldn’t do I would just do on my computer at work and e-mail it to myself at home.
The only real advantage is it is cheap to start $99-$199 and it is nice to sit in front of a 27" screen and lay down and surf the internet.
But if you can afford a computer that is the only way to go. WebTV is nice for what it is…But in a couple of years I believe everyone will have some sort of internet capacity avail through their tv.
