BetaNews | MS Testing Media Center TV Streaming: “Microsoft is currently testing a Slingbox-like add-on that would allow Windows Media Center users to watch programming on their PCs from anywhere using mobile devices and laptops, BetaNews has learned.
The feature uses a software application rather than a set-top box, as Slingbox utilizes to control a TiVo, cable or satellite box remotely. The resulting stream would play through Windows Media Player.
A demo viewed by BetaNews last week indicates that the service would even work over slower mobile data connections, such as EDGE.”
Ummm, isn’t this kind of already called Orb? And isn’t it hard to beat the price free?
