Orb Networks makes its streaming service available worldwide
Orb Networks, Inc. has announced the worldwide availability of the company's streaming media product. Additionally, Orb announced its first international edition with a beta release of a French language version. The Company will deliver additional language releases of its streaming media service over the next few months.

The global availability of Orb comes a week after Orb Networks eliminated subscription fees for its service. This provides consumers around the world with a free service that provides mobile access to their music, photos, videos, webcams and other digital content located on their home PC from virtually any Internet-enabled device.

Orb Networks is currently establishing business relationships with providers of television guide data in many countries, including France, Japan and Great Britain, that will allow users to stream live TV. Until then, the Orb TV feature is only available in the United States.

The beta of the French language edition is available to download now from anywhere in the world at www.orb.com/francais for customers with Windows XP operating system or Windows XP Media Center Edition. After a quick installation, customers are ready to use any Internet-connected device to view digital photos, videos, Webcams or listen to MP3 music files stored on their home PC.

Orb's solution streams a consumer's own content from their home PC to the Web browser and player on a cell phone, PDA, or notebook, creating their own "personal media portal." Consumers can remotely record TV programs using Orb's Digital Video Recorder (DVR) function and view those recorded programs at any time on any of their mobile devices. Orb Networks leverages the best features of today's popular standards while abiding by current digital rights management (DRM) platforms.
