I guess if you’re a person who absolutely refuses to get up in the middle of your favorite TV show, but at the same time is expecting an extremely important phone call this might appeal to you.
The TV Messenger is a small box that hooks up to your television and at the same time is also connected to your phone line. When the phone rings the TV Messenger will pop-up the Caller ID info across the top of the television screen, without interrupting your current show. There’s also a remote available which will allow you to scroll through the unit’s 14 caller log to see just how many calls you’ve missed.
The TV Messenger with remote is available from SmartHome for $109.99. A standard version without remote is availble for $73.99.
