Simple.tv & Silicondust Launch Cord Cutters DVR
Simple.tv partnered with Silicondust, the manufacturer of networked TV tuners, for a new generation of DVR. It ships with two tuners with ethernet ports, an antenna-in port, and a single USB port to connect external devices to store TV recordings. Simple.tv debuted single-tuner hardware that allowed users to record shows in HD and then stream those shows to mobile devices, computers, or Roku boxes last year, and this latest effort looks to expand capabilities within this field. The new hardware will likely enable users to replace their expensive cable service with the cheaper offering, while still allowing them access shows from major broadcasters. In short, Somple.tv have released the ultimate cord cutting enabler.
