UK consumers will be able to buy televisions incorporating the Netscape Communicator 4.0 browser in time for Christmas, a highly placed source at the company said last week.
Netscape is in negotiation with larger retailers, both in Europe and the Americas, to include its browsers on TVs. Using a single infrared switch, viewers will be able to browse Web pages although it is unlikely speeds will be fast.
The company is understood to be talking to a number of cable suppliers. Consumer cable modems will start to appear in volume by the end of this month, another source said.
Cable modems can deliver data at up to 6Mbps, faster than ISDN, and will be important to the take-up of home Internet applications. The delivery of cable modems make it likely that BT will cut its prices on ISDN in September.
