Watch TV and MySpace Together

MySpace has developed the Widget Channel, which enables users to keep abreast of MySpace's social-networking activity, such as e-mail and photo browsing while watching TV. The widget sits at the bottom of the TV screen and is set of development tools developed jointly with Intel and Yahoo. The aim of the Widget Channel is to develop mini-applications that complement TV viewing with Internet information.
Users can receive instant updates of friends' activities directly on their TV screen and will also let them view their friends' profiles.

The MySpace Widget will be available on Internet-connected consumer electronics, such as set-top boxes, Blu-ray players and TVs and are designed to work with Intel's Intel Media Processor CE3100 system-on-a-chip platform for consumer electronics devices.
