WebTV

WebTV, now owned by Microsoft, was one of the first entries in the much publicized convergence of the World Wide Web with television. You buy a set-top box similar to a cable TV box, then sign up with the WebTV access service and browse Web pages using a WebTV's browser and a hand-held control. A keyboard is provided optionally. WebTV uses your television set as an output device; the signals arrive, however, through a modem and a telephone line at 33.6 Kbps (Classic model) or 56 Kbps (Plus model).

The most recent WebTV service includes support for frames (with certain limitations), JavaScript, RealAudio, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and other Web technology.
