blinkx partners with Orb Networks
November 2, 2011
blinkx, the video search engine, has formed a partnership with Orb Networks to bring more than 35 million hours of TV, video and audio content to Orb BR and Orb TV users in the US.
Orb TV, a hockey puck-sized device that plugs into any TV, enables consumers to stream online video, photos and music to a TV. It is controlled through a smartphone app (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, and Android Tablet), or using any computer. In addition to blinkx content, Orb TV provides consumers with easy access to thousands of movies and TV shows through services such as Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, Hulu and Comedy Central. Orb TV also allows consumers to stream their personal content – including home movies, downloaded files, photos and music – from any PC to a TV screen.
