    My plan here is to try and maintain a list of links that would be good for beginners to use as a resource.

    (Oh hell, we all can't get enough of this stuff, right? [​IMG])

    Enjoy!

    ************************************************

    In May 2011 MaximumTech.com published a three part series covering the basics of what we are calling IPTV here at IPTV Connection. Here are links to each of the three parts:


    Part 1 - Video-On-Demand: A Complete Guide to All the TV and Movie Downloading Services

    This installment reviewed the following services: Amazon Instant Video, Blockbuster on Demand, CinemaNow, Crackle, Vudu, Hulu & Hulu Plus, iTunes and Netflix.


    Part 2 - Smart TV Services: What Are They -- and What's Available Right Now

    This installment reviewed the following services: Google TV, Yahoo Connected TV, MLB.TV, NASCAR RaceView and NBA League Pass.


    Part 3 - Craving Smart TV? Here’s the Hardware You Need to Enjoy It

    This installment looked at various hardware options including HDTVs, Home Theater PCs, Blu-ray Disc Players, Apple TV, Networked Media Players, D-Link Boxxe Box, Roku Networked Media Players, and the Sony Internet TV Blu-ray Disc Player (with built-in Google TV).

    Included is a very brief discussion about 'What Will Happen to Blu-ray'.

    There is also a link to their '23 Tips for Buying an HDTV' and slightly dated 'Networked Media Players Round-up'.

    Direct link to their always updated 'Networked Media Players Comparison Site'. It's a complete list of all players with easy to use filters to compare them.

    Any or all of these subscription? Free? PPV? Some combination of all three?

    Many are free and many require a subscription. The links will take you to their home page where you can see if they have a free trial.

    I was hoping not to have to go to each on individually.

    I'm lazy. So sue me. :) B)
