Digital Living Network Alliance is one of the biggest media groups out there and for good reason. But while there are over two hundred members of the alliance, there are only twenty one Promoting Members. That exclusive group that "signifies a strong commitment to the work and mission" of the alliance just got bigger as AT&T, Dolby Laboratories, Qualcomm, Technicolor and Verizon have signed on. This is great news since each is a big player in the digital space and getting behind DLNA is getting behind something we love; enjoying our media on every device we own. There's no word on when this new found commitment will bear fruit, but that doesn't stop us from dreaming about seeing HD content with Dolby surround sound from Verizon FiOS TV, on our media streaming game console.
*Verizon is currently in the process of acquiring AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
