Really Simple Software Simple.TV
More and more of us are ditching high-priced cable and satellite TV services for Internet-based services such as iTunes, Amazon.com, Netflix, Vudu, and Hulu Plus. But the truth is you typically lose consistent access to the major networks' shows as a result. If that's your dilemma, consider the Simple.TV, a TV tuner that sends the local broadcast stations' signals (as well as unencrypted ClearQAM HDTV signals) to your computer, tablet, smartphone, or other screen over the network. Attach a hard drive, and you have a videorecorder for delayed viewing. The optional Premier service also allows remote viewing when on the go.
