Orb Networks announces TV streaming app


Orb Networks announced the launch of its new Orb Live app
– the first service that enables consumers to stream the vast majority of
popular premium online TV shows, sports, movies and more directly to their
iPhone or Android devices.


For TV viewing anywhere and anytime, Orb Live makes it
simple and affordable for people to watch shows from Hulu, ABC, CBS, Fox, ESPN
and more, with its unique technology that streams TV shows for free to a mobile


Orb Live is the first service to stream free,
ad-supported Hulu to mobile devices. Priced at $9.99, with no subscription
fees, Orb Live opens up a whole new world of entertainment options for mobile
phone users, with thousands of TV shows available.  


Orb Live features premium online content, including full
TV show episodes which until now could only be watched through your computer’s
web browser.  With Orb Live, consumers can also watch a huge array of
sports and movies via services such as Netflix and Amazon Video on Demand.


Mobile-video viewing saw a 41 percent rise from last
year, according to a recent study by Nielsen Holdings N.V., and Orb Live is
meeting this consumer demand for mobile TV and video viewing.


“Now consumers can use Orb Live to watch their
favorite TV shows, sports and movies anywhere, on their mobile phone, without
any additional subscription fees,” said Joe Costello, CEO and cofounder of
Orb Networks.


“No matter where they are, people can use their
mobile phone to get the same great content that is available on their home PC
for watching at the beach, on the soccer field, at the airport or on a commuter


“With this new version of Orb Live, we have also
dramatically improved the streaming quality of the video to give users the best
possible picture quality, at their current connection speed.  As the
connection moves up and down in quality, the video adjusts in real time to
deliver the best picture and minimize the dreaded buffering so users always
have access to their TV shows, movies and music,” Costello added.


To help consumers easily find and watch their favorite
shows, Orb Live features a powerful and easy-to-use global index of TV shows.
Consumers simply type in the name of the show they want and then Orb
quickly finds the show, without having to specify its source.


The new version of Orb Live also provides consumers with
all of the features of the original Orb Live, including live streaming of any
music files, online music, video files, photos and more to a mobile phone.
