Want to ditch your overpriced cable TV service and get the same thing? For free? That’s what ZillionTV is all about. It’s a new service that offers ad-supported HDTV shows and pay on demand. See? Just like what you have now. The “Z-bar” is a compact set-top box that gets its video direct from your broadband connection. That’s where the magic happens. It will cost you a $50 installation fee, then you’re all set to stick it to the man.
The service is in beta right now, but when it’s available later in the year, you will have a few options. You can view shows for free with advertising attached, or buy them to watch ad-free shows. And yes, some big names are attached, like NBC Universal, Disney, 20th Century Fox Television, Sony Pictures, and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. Sounds awesome.
