PC World has launched an iPad Media Streaming service. Designed in collaboration with Livedrive, it allows iPad owners to store 100GB of media and data online. This can then be accessed and played through live streaming via a 3G or Wi-Fi network, all for £39.99 per year.
The launch of the service comes hot on the heels of the Meet iPad service. Available as a consultation in-store, the UK service has seen thousands of iPad owners booking one to one consultations with Apple trained expert store staff to get expert advice on setting up and using the iPad to its fullest capability.
Available to buy at PC World stores throughout the UK, the iPad Media Streaming lets you back up the majority of your media and data files from your Mac or PC online and then lets you access them remotely through your iPad, effectively increasing its hard drive by a further 100GB.
This service allows you to live stream your music, videos and photos direct from your online storage through this service and its software. Additionally you can even stream music, videos and photos from multiple Macs and PCs to your iPad over your home network, so you can enjoy your media from any computer in any room in your home.
After purchasing the software and service, all customers will have to do is register and install the software on their computer, following the on-screen prompts and download the Media Stream app onto their iPad. Their Mac or PC will automatically scan for files to back up and they can then choose what they what to store online.
