SPOTLIGHT: Buyers of high-tech condos cautioned about IPTV

In the hot urban real estate market, some buyers looking at expensive condos require their units to be VoIP, WiFi and IPTV ready. Real estate gurus, however, are cautioning buyers when it comes to IPTV. As one explained: "I don't think anyone knows what consumers are going to make of it... there are scores of providers offering IPTV services, and each of them requires the use of a set-top box on each television--cumbersome at best, and tricky, because you don't know which providers will last. While several companies are working on a more universal solution, the technology just isn't here yet." Article
