Every TV an Internet TV

A new product makes any digital TV capable of displaying high-definition Internet video.

Plug one end of the ZvBox into your Windows PC, the other into an ordinary cable TV wall socket, and you can watch high-definition Internet video on any digital TV in the house. Inside the ZvBox is a new type of chip that converts a computer’s video output into a digital TV signal, something only costly professional gear could previously do. The box comes with a remote that lets you control your computer from wherever you watch TV.
