OrbLive Delivers Live TV to iPhone

OrbLive Delivers Live TV to iPhone

Posted November 20, 2008 at 9:54pm by iClarified
Orb Networks today announced OrbLive 2.0, a media application for the Apple iPhone 3G/iPod touch, is now available in the iPhone's App Store. OrbLive enables iPhone/touch owners to enjoy any media that they can experience on their home PC -- music, videos, photos, webcams, even live TV -- on these popular mobile devices any time they have a network connection. OrbLive is available in the App Store in two versions -- a free trial and a $9.99 download.

"The iPod touch and the iPhone are cutting-edge mobile devices, but as media players, they were designed to be used with iTunes, so unfortunately users are shut out of any live media like TV, radio, or webcams," said Joe Costello, CEO of Orb. "Prior to OrbLive, users were forced to download their selections from their computer or remember to sync before they left the house. With OrbLive on your iPhone or touch, all your media is at your fingertips."

OrbLive utilizes the powerful networking capabilities of the iPhone and touch, transforming them into far more powerful media players. OrbLive enables you to enjoy your entire media collection, not just the limited media library stored on the device. With OrbLive, you use the network to connect and beam anything from your media collection, wherever you are. Don't carry it with you. Connect.

They use to have this on 1.4 on installer, and it was free. I hope there is something that makes this better then the old version.

According to http://orb.com/system_requirements it appears you need a Windows box with a BDA (i.e. Media Center) compatible setup for live TV. Since all my workstations are Macs and my TV is a MythTV box, I guess that rules me out.
