TV Everywhere lets you watch and record your favourite programmes anywhere in the home

Wireless media streaming seems to be one hot topic at CES this year, and Slingbox has had another feather added to its cap via DISH Networks. The broadcast-anywhere solution first surfaced in 2005 and has since been superceded with a PRO-HD model and mobile versions for the iPhone. It now seems to be working on integration with set-top boxes and other devices, and a recent partnership with DISH has resulted in its new TV Everywhere service.

In a nutshell, the concept involves streaming or ‘slinging’ media from a television receiver in a living room to remote computers, mobile phones and other portable wireless-enabled devices, all features that can be found in DISH Network’s new HD DVR and TV Everywhere service.

The package consists of an adapter with 1TB of storage, a Wifi Monitor and a remote access application, offers 720p HD streaming in widescreen format and the ability to view and manage recordings from afar. iPhone and iPod touch users will be able to use their handheld as an all-in-one remote with the system, and a virtual remote control is available through a web browser on a PC or other mobile device.

"DISH Network is proud to introduce the first and only comprehensive solution for consumers to pay once for content and then remain connected to their TV everywhere," said Ira Bahr, Chief Marketing Officer for DISH Network. "DISH Network customers will be able to enjoy their favorite live and recorded shows throughout their home and on the go, using the same program guide, menu and navigation they are familiar with on their home TV."

TV Everywhere is being demonstrated over the next three days at CES2010 and is available to buy now, with subscriptions starting at USD$24.99 per month.

Working at DISH network I got to see the 922 for a year before it was released. I was happier then a clam when it did come out though. Built in sling technology makes its easy to get your TV everywhere. I bought mine first chance I had, and now I never miss a live show or my recorded DVR's anywhere I am. Best thing for my mobile lifestyle.
