DivX TV Explained and Demonstrated

While out at CES we had a chance to chat to DivX spoksperson, Tom Huntington, about the company's DivX TV service that is currently available on the LG BD550 and LG BD570 Blu-ray players and will be coming to other devices soon. It brings together content from a number of Internet TV sources including Revision 3, Funny Or Die, CNET, and Engadget and presents them in a manner that's easy to navigate using a traditional remote.

The service is only available in the US at the moment, though global access should be coming soon along with support for other products like Blu-ray players, TVs and smartphones.

The service does look rather slick, providing easy access to content that otherwise requires performing a cumbersome search or navigating to the providers website. Here you can just click through the shows, somewhat like how you navigate a TV guide. Moreover, by restricting it to professional providers - rather than user created content - you're ensured a certain level of programming quality.

DivX TV certainly isn't unique and you can find a variety of professional Internet TV content via online widgets on a number of different TVs and other AV products. However, it does provide one of the easiest ways of accessing a large variety of shows at once. Just a shame we'll have to wait so long for it to arrive in any way shape or form over here in Blighty.
