Yahoo! FinanceVision offers live, streaming

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 25, 2000

Yahoo! FinanceVision offers live, streaming financial coverage, with contextual HTML-based content to go with it. If the reporter in the video stream is talking about Oracle’s 2-for-1 stock split, information about how Oracle’s stock is doing is pushed to you in a separate frame. During interviews, Web users can submit questions to the guest. When I think about the promise of interactive television, this is the type of stuff that has a chance at success.
