The connected world continues to evolve in the way of video content channels, including one we have been blogging and tweeting a lot about recently, connected or internet TV. Which brings us to our latest media partner out of the UK, Miniweb.
Miniweb doesn’t include a browser in their connected device like Google TV does. Instead, Miniweb works with content providers (like Preview Networks) to integrate the content onto devices like gaming consoles and blu-ray players with an app called Woomi.
Video Nuze breaks it down in an article nicely by describing it this way: “Woomi is not trying to bring an online experience to the TV, but rather to create a better TV experience by seamlessly incorporating online content into it.”
Woomi is live on Samsung’s 2010 Internet@TV and blu-ray players in the UK and they are planning to launch on the same devices in the US in January, 2011. France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland are scheduled to be launched in 2011 as well. Check out their website for more info: http://www.woomi.tv/what.htm
