MySpace makes expansion to TV.
Wired PR News.com — As reported by AFP, MySpace, an increasingly popular online social networking site, is in the process of expanding its computer service to television. Intel and Yahoo are amongst some of the top facilitators on board to assist MySpace during the transition. Its application is built on a channel developed by the two corporations.
As mentioned in the AFP report, a mini computer program, or widget, will be set in different types of new television sets to enable members of the site to view TV while linking to online profiles. Japanese electronics company Toshiba has reportedly listed MySpace as one of the Internet services available on upcoming models.
“We’re giving our users an entirely new way to easily enjoy, share and access MySpace content through the new MySpace experience for TV,” as quoted of MySpace vice president of business development Jason Oberfest. “By empowering our users to access their MySpace network while also enjoying TV, we continue to provide new and unique ways to keep them engaged and connected,” Oberfest further noted.
MySpace, Intel, and Yahoo all have expressed their excitement about the new venture, and of bringing a different experience to millions of MySpace and Yahoo users.
