OrbLive delivers media, including live TV, to the iPhone, iPod touch
OrbLive is available in the App Store in two versions -- a free trial and a $9.99 download. OrbLive utilizes the networking capabilities of the iPhone and touch enabling you to enjoy your entire media collection, not just the limited media library stored on the device, according to Joe Costello, CEO of Orb. With OrbLive, you use the network to connect and beam anything from your media collection, wherever you are.
OrbLive works over all available networks. On the iPod touch you can connect over WiFi, so you can enjoy your music, videos, or live TV at home, work, or any WiFi hotspot. On the iPhone, you can connect via high speed WiFi or over 2G or 3G wireless connections
For $9.99, OrbLive 2.0 will play any of the media from your PC (a Mac version is in the works) -- music, movies/videos, photos, webcams, even live TV if you have a tuner card -- on your iPhone or iPod touch. There are no other service or subscription fees required. OrbLive Free has all the functionality of the full version, but limits your media selection to three randomly chosen titles of each media type.
