Gmail, Facebook accessible on cable TV!

Gmail, Facebook accessible on cable TV!
New Delhi: There's good news for those who use cable television services. You can now check your mail, watch YouTube videos or connect with friends on Facebook at the regular cable subscription charge of 150-200 per month.

Logic Eastern, a Noida-based manufacturer of cable infrastructure, has developed special set-top boxes which come with an in-built patented hardware that enables connection to Gmail, Facebook and YouTube. The company has made possible two-way flow of data - from websites to cable operators to consumers and return by using the existing cellphone technology.

The company has installed large servers which download Gmail, YouTube and Facebook pages on behalf of its subscribers and pushes them on to their television screens. For now, consumers can access this service with a special remote control. However the company is developing a wireless keyboard that will be given along with the set-top boxes. Also, apart from the remote control, consumers can use their mobile phones to surf channels or access these websites.

Logic Eastern has already deployed 60,000 such set-top boxes across South Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Nagpur, Bhubaneswar and Jammu. The company has roped in ICICI as an investor. It has bought a 20 percent stake, which is helping Logic Eastern monetise these services that even existing Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) companies and the Direct-to-Home (DTH) operators have not been able to achieve.

"We believe it will be critical for cable operators to differentiate their services by leveraging the massive bandwidth that their cables take to each home. This is something that even DTH cannot do," says Vineet Wadhwa, Chief Technology Officer and Promoter of Logic Eastern. Instead of value-added services, the company prefers to call them 'enhanced services.' But how safe is accessing your email via cable? It is as safe as logging on to the internet on your home computer or laptop, says Wadhwa.

24: this is a perfect example of 'who needs it' technology. Just to check these few sites you must buy a subscription, wifi keyboard and mouse. Why not just use the computer instead?

34: Really sounds gud to have these services on television.. It would be better if we get both telivison and internet on the same lines at same cable connection costs. But it may face many problems.. we need an error free networks, every one should be able to access at their own pace. Then it would turn to be another era in the histoty of communication.
