    Belkin Introduces @TV; Brings Live and Recorded Content to Mobile Devices

    Playa Vista, Calif. – June 20, 2012 – Belkin, creator of people-inspired consumer technology products, today announced a new way to watch, record, and experience television content at home or on the go with @TV. @TV works over Wi-Fi® or a 3G/4G network and allows users to access all content from their home theater on tablets, smartphones, and laptops.
    "Americans have long had a love affair with TV, and now they are increasingly demanding the ability to access their TV content wherever and whenever they want. It's no longer enough to record content to watch later," said Jamie Elgie, senior director of product management at Belkin. "With @TV you aren't limited to certain channels, and you have full access to both recorded content and live TV, so it's easy to watch the game in the backyard or your favorite movie at the dentist."
    @TV works with both standard and high-definition programming and can connect and control multiple sources, such as a digital cable box, satellite receiver, or DVD player. @TV's easy-to-use channel guide makes it simple to control live or recorded content directly from a mobile device. Unlike competing products, @TV also has Wi-Fi built in and can record live TV directly to a mobile device for viewing when not connected to Wi-Fi or a data network.
    @TV works with the @TV mobile app, which is available for both iOS and Android platforms. The @TV app is free for tablets and $12.99 for smartphones. The apps are available from the Apple App Store and Android Market.
    @TV plus (G1V1000) – $149.99
    Watch live and recorded TV anywhere your tablet, smartphone, or laptop can access Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G
    Record directly on mobile devices
    Easy-to-use Channel Guide with swipe surf for easy scrolling
    Wi-Fi enabled: Compatible with all Wi-Fi enabled tablets, smartphones, and laptops

    Compatible with both Mac and PC, Android and iOS devices
    No additional monthly service fees
    @TV plus will be available in mid-July at Belkin.com and other online and in-store retailers in the U.S. The @TV app will be available for download from the Apple App Store or the Android Market in early July.

    Kind of sounds like a Sling Box.

    This will be interesting. Sling devices are under attack in Fox's suit against Dish. But generally because of how Sling carefully controls sending and receiving I've always felt that they don't constitute a licensing violation as a content internet redistribution system. But Sling does have ongoing costs which I haven't figured out how they support financially.

    Anybody have one of these yet? I am thinking about one. I like the idea that it is wireless. I need to replace my SlingBox Classic, but it does not look like Sling is updating its products and has a lot of bad customer service comments posted around the web.
