Orb Launches First Internet TV Solution That Allows Consumers to Watch All Their Online TV Shows: Hulu and More on a TV

I think I want one of these, at least to see what it’s all about. The Orb TV let’s you watch Hulu and a lot of other online things right on your TV and control it with your phone, and yes you can use an Android phone which I find just amazing! Price is $99, but too bad there’s no HD.

Orb Networks today launched the first Internet TV product that allows consumers to watch thousands of online TV shows from Hulu, ESPN3, Comedy Central and more by bringing it to the home TV for comfortable, big screen viewing.  Orb TV is now available for $99, offering a complete home entertainment solution that is easy to set up, and simply controlled through a convenient smartphone app (iPhone, Android, iPad, iPod Touch).

In addition to online TV, Orb TV provides consumers with easy access to thousands of movies on their TV, via Netflix.  Orb TV also makes it easy to stream home videos, YouTube and photos to the TV, for viewing with friends and family

Unlike many other Internet TV solutions that are complicated, expensive or lacking in the availability of TV shows, Orb TV is simple and affordable and does not require additional purchases. Orb TV transforms any TV into an Internet-connected TV that is easily controlled via a smartphone.  Because it leverages the consumer’s existing investment in their TV, home computer and smartphone, it offers an easy and affordable way for consumers to enter the new world of connected TV.

"With Orb TV, people are no longer locked into watching their favorite online TV shows on a small PC or Mac computer screen," said Joe Costello, CEO and founder, Orb Networks. "We make it easy for consumers to enjoy popular TV shows on any TV, in any room of the house.  With the smartphone, consumers no longer have to worry about losing the remote for the TV, and it has a familiar interface that consumers are accustomed to."

Getting started with Orb TV is easy and quick.  Users simply download the free Orb Caster software to their PC or Mac; next they plug in the Orb TV unit — a hockey-puck sized device — into any TV in the home; finally they download the free Orb controller app to their smartphone.

To help consumers easily find and watch their favorite shows, the Orb controller app features a powerful and easy-to-use global index of TV shows. Consumers can type in the name of the show they want and then Orb quickly finds the show, without requiring the user to specify its source (e.g. Hulu, ABC, CBS, etc).
