If you’re a regular reader or a Comcast Xfinity customer in Denver or Nashville, you’ve probably heard about Comcast’s new AnyPlay service, which launched in January and uses Motorola’s Televation box to stream live cable TV to your tablet.
Leslie Ellis at Multi-Channel News recently got her hands on it and took down her first impressions. Here are some excerpts:
-“That’s where AnyPlay is different, and I’ll say it, better..”
- “…it’s an extension of the TV programming you already pay for…”
- “It’s a standalone box. No video outputs. Coax in, Ethernet out to the modem/wireless router, and voila: Television on the iPad. (Droids and other devices to come.)”
- “How does AnyPlay compare to the other lab streamers? Put it this way. The lab stuff is in a back room. All those screens, all those services, no TV at the desk! Until now. (I expect my quality of work to degrade precipitously.)”
