The ink is barely dry on a deal between Yahoo and Vestel Group. Their intention, to bring the Internet to your living room.

The Vestel Group manufacture 16% of all LCD TVs sold in Europe and 25% of digital set top boxes. It is clear that they know their technology.

Yahoo is transforming the television experience for millions of consumers around the world. Working together, they can bring the dream of Internet TV to the screens in Living rooms.

These are big guns and this opress release lets us know more about the next horizons and whilst we muse that there is much to occur in terms of mobile TV, this proves that their is still a lot of channel integrations to occur.

This news is going to the catalyst for a number of new business models - and this time, there is time, Yahoo Connected TV is planned to be available to consumers soon, in 40 countries, across Europe starting Q1 2011.
