Ameba, an IPTV company, sent me a set top box to review on my dad blog. The Ameba TV box is essentially a hard drive that enables dads and moms to download shows for their children watch on a regular TV. It’s kinda of like a combination of cable and Tivo. But instead of recording cable shows, parents download content with an Internet connection. And unlike cable, Ameba gives parents total control over what their children can watch by allowing them to preselect content from thousands of educational and music themed shows. The kids and I have used Ameba TV on and off for about a month now (we’re returning it soon).
