Enabling The Cinematic Internet™.
The Cinematic Internet is Yahoo!s vision for the emerging world of Internet-connected TV—combining the Internets choice, community, and personalization with the power of television. This combination will transform traditional TV into something bigger, better, and more exciting than ever. Yahoo! and our partners are working on rich TV Widgets that will bring the Cinematic Internet to life.
To ensure that the Cinematic Internet is open and powerful, Yahoo!® is working with the biggest brands in consumer entertainment and internet services to create a vibrant ecosystem.

This will enable developers and publishers to continuously change and improve what it means to watch TV.
