Softel vdm, Inc. has released MyTinyTV 1.0, a program that allows anyone to watch real-time television on a Pocket PC, wherever a high speed Internet connection is available.
MyTinyTV works with a desktop PC's television tuner connected to the home's cable or antenna, sending the user's cable or antenna television channels and listings through a wireless network to their Pocket PC. This type of technology is called place shift.
The system includes an interface for the user's Pocket PC with channel up/down buttons, full listings and the ability to click for show descriptions and detailed programming information. Unlike other Pocket PC television services, MyTinyTV is not a subscription for Internet TV.
Accordin to the company, a Pocket PC held at a comfortable viewing distance appears as large as a 27-inch television as viewed from across the room.
Softel vdm is offering free, fully functional seven-day demo downloads of the product. The software is then available for purchase for US$59.00, which includes a full year of free television listings.
