Simple.TV: DVR for Mobile Devices Coming to US

Posted on September 20, 2012

Simple.TV has announced that its namesake device would be shipping this DVR solution for mobile devices to customers in United States beginning September 27th, costing $149. The DVR automatically converts HD content using its integrated TV tuner (whether receiving HD over-the-air signals or ClearQAM digital basic cable) and turn the clips into MPEG-4 formats that can be playable in mobile devices.

Apart from streaming to iPad, iPhone, and Roku devices, Simple.TV can also deliver content to a web browser on any other device with the help of an HTML 5 player. This service is, in essence, a blend of Slingbox and TiVo.

Unlike other DVRs, however, Simple.TV does not play content on the TV, as the device is specifically designed to deliver content to non-traditional viewing platforms. It can be connected to a router through its Ethernet plug, as well as a USB 2.0 hard drive, but it does not work on WiFi.

Cost for basic service is free of charge, wherein owners can enjoy in-home streaming of live content and pause live TV recorded shows. Meanwhile, the premium plan is available for just $4.99 a month, featuring out-of-home remote streaming, scheduled recordings for series programming, and an electronic program guide.
