It may happen.. because in future we can able to see all channels thru the net itself and it will happen soon. earlier the same think happened to the typewriting machine... so it will happen soon to television too.

So you mean to tell me people would rather watch a show on tv with a broadband or cable connection? When they watch it on a 50+ inch plasma hdtv? There not even close to the same quality anybody who would do that doesn't need a tv ...lol.

Bill gates needs to stick to computers because this comment is just dumb. HDTV are just becoming affordable and are selling out like crazy now. So why would people abandon them in just 10 years. Bill gates is a genius when it comes to software but outside out that he looks dumb. That is why the xbox sold less then the nintendo gamecube. Also this is why he can't compete with apple outside of software.
