The Simple.TV DVR is Shipping Next Week to Kickstarter and Pre-Order Customers

Posted Mon Sep 24, 2012 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The DVR, which streams to your web browser, smartphone, tablet or set-top, will be available to order by the end of this month.

The Simple.TV DVR is one of those products that probably wouldn't exist in the first place if it wasn't for Kickstarter. It's a niche product, but a very cool one for a specific group of customers. The Simple.TV DVR connects to your antenna or cable through a coax adapter and then records and streams broadcast television to your internet browser or dedicated apps for iOS and Roku.

What the Simple.TV DVR doesn't do is handle channels outside of the freely available broadcast channels. That means no 'Breaking Bad,' no 'Weeds' and no 'Game of Thrones.'

If you shell out $49 a year for the premium service - $149 for lifetime – you'll be able to do more than just record and play back to devices in your home. You can stream to your app or internet browser no matter where you are, and you'll have a more pleasant experience thanks to a program guide, series recording and program details.
