For what seems like an eternity, home users have had to search for ways to get content from their computers to their TV. Interim solutions have often been via set top boxes or game consoles, but ultimately this solution was only a workaround to what should have arrived years ago.

Toshiba will be the first manufacturer to ship a TV with a ‘Compatible with Windows 7’ logo. This means the network port in the back of their UX600 Cinema Series LED HDTVs will allow users to stream content directly from a Windows 7 PC to the TV. Making use of the ‘Play-to’ feature in Win7, getting content on your biggest screen in the house is finally a simply process.

Other TV manufacturers take note, this is the new benchmark, make this standard across all sets as soon as humanly possible.
