A company called BroadQ LLC has unveiled a software application that allows the PS2 to play video content on the Internet. It is due to go on sale for $50 this fall.
To quote: In addition to these capabilities, users can customize Qtv. For example, while using API (application programming interface) available from online video distributors, users can set keywords related to their favorite videos on the Website run by BroadQ.
Using the company's system, users can choose and display videos related to those keywords on their terminals.
BroadQ is planning to release Qtv at US$49.95 sometime around fall 2008. Also, it is planning to disclose and sell its software applications for mobile phones and PCs at the same time.
In addition to selling the software by itself, the company is considering incorporating its software applications in set top boxes and other items manufactured by other companies.
