Obsessed with the future of TV

This is a notebook about television, internet video, and what the next living room will be. It's an outline powered by Fargo. The editor of Glass is Zach Seward; the lead developer is Sam Williams.

  • Google just started publishing video streaming quality data for internet service providers in the US.
      • It's not yet working for me, but appears to be for others in the US.
      • Google first released this kind of video quality report for Canadian ISPs in January. By extending it to the U.S., the company joins the likes of Netflix, which has been pushing U.S. ISPs for some time to improve video streaming quality, and has its own ISP speed index that ranks streaming performance for customers of various service providers.
      • Interesting to see Google labeling some providers as "HD verified" if they can maintain a high-quality stream.
