Has anyone heard about this new service offered through Chunghwa? I called a tech support guy at Chunghwa earlier and asked him about this technology.
Apparently its IPTV, Internet Television. Basically its a way to watch television on your TV over an ADSL line. You get a decoder box, and a remote control. They have 22 channels both local and some international. I did not ask for a list of channels. The service also includes VOD, video on demand, kind of like a pay-per-view service. Apparently its cheaper than renting a DVD. The price is 89ntd/month. In some districts they are having special promotions.
The drawback to this technology is that it is only available for one TV and apparently there is no software you can use to watch it on your computer, unless you have a TV card that is. Also the box is supposed to be plugged directly into the ADSL modem not behind a router if you have one. I wonder if this is hackable in some way so you can use it on any computer attached to your router?
Anyone have any experience with this yet?
