Bill Gates clearly doesn’t watch British TV

He’s been talking up Microsoft’s internet tv software (which is what BT Vision has at its heart) by knocking plain old broadcast TV.

TV may be terrible where you are Bill, but in my experience, there’s always something to watch here, especially if you’ve got a PVR doing the recording for you.

I think it’s going to take a lot longer than 5 years for people to become fully ‘convergent’ and forget about linear TV.

That’s before we’ve even seen the effects of hybrid services like BT Vision – a mix of digital TV (Freeview) and additional programmes coming via broadband internet.  They get mixed together on a hard disc, inside BT’s V-box.
