Spend any measurable amount of time in the tech realm and you’ll quickly find out that in terms of ISP’s, Cablevision rarely get’s “I love you” reviews. Usually expletives and other nasty phrases are being hurled forth. So consider it a welcome surprise to learn that that a cable company who has generally favored old business models (read: eschewing anything remotely interesting to techies) is now moving forward with a new “PC-to-TV” service that if launched successfully, will be quite addition to their line up.

The simple gist — with their PC-to-TV service, anything and everything displayed on your computer screen will be able to be transmitted to your cablebox over a special wireless channel specific to you and you alone. While far from a “new” idea or concept, it’s comforting to finally see cable providers actually embracing technology instead of trying to block it (well, at least this type of service anyway).

Barring any issues with outsiders peeking in on the content of your little live stream, this is actually an awesome idea that cable providers should have embraced several years ago. But hey, I can’t complain too much. Looking back at pretty much any and every cable provider in history paints a pretty bleak picture. This little ray of sunshine however may just be the starting of a wave of change in the cable industry. We surely can only hope. Look for trials to begin this June.

Would you pay extra for a PC-to-TV service? If so, how much?
