Yahoo Japan made a licensing agreement with Mediabolic for its web media product software, with which Yahoo Japan is going to develop “Yahoo! digital home engine”.
Once it’s developed, people can access Yahoo Japan’s services such as search engine, auction, and photo albums, from TV screen at home.
In Japan, people 30 and up prefer to access the web through PC, and people under 30 prefer to access the web through mobile. It looks that Yahoo is trying to become a part of people’s daily life even more, and being able to access the services from TV screen seems to be the right approach.
