Want to bring your brand, services and content to the TV?
The Yahoo! Connected TV Widget platform is available in a variety of consumer electronic devices, including flat panel TVs from Samsung, Sony, LG Electronics and VIZIO--with more coming soon! With TV Widgets, developers can now deliver new, interactive experiences to millions of TVs
TV Widgets allow Internet services and online media to reach viewers with applications specifically tailored to TV viewers. The integrated Internet experience is powered by the Yahoo! Widget Engine, a fifth generation application platform derived from the legendary Konfabulator desktop widget platform.
The Yahoo! WDK (Widget Development Kit) is still in closed beta, but any Open Hack attendee will be able to join the beta and download the WDK.
Know someone who has been hoping to get into the TV Widgets beta? Please pass along this invitation. Of course, if you know developers or companies who would love to build a TV Widget, but don’t know it yet, please share with them too.
