The NCAA Basketball Tournament, the FA Cup, the Masters Tournament – so many exciting sports events, so little time. On any given day this spring, sports fans will be forced to choose which event they want to watch live, relegating simultaneous games to DVR status, where catching the action in real-time is impossible and social media spoilers are probable. What if you didn’t have to choose between your favorite teams?
Sports fans rejoice! A new, easy-to-use TV companion device from 4SeTV lets you watch any four live television shows at once on a tablet, smartphone, or TV; or, alternatively, on up to four different devices at the same time. Built on patent pending technology, 4SeTV uses over-the-air broadcasting and streams the HD content you want to see to your connected devices in your home network. It’s the first-ever device that lets you select and watch four channels on the same screen.
Easy to install, 4SeTV hooks up to your HDTV antenna and connects to your router with an ethernet cable. From there, simply switch the box on and go at the push of a button. When it comes to costs, after the initial hardware purchase, there are no monthly subscription fees.
4SeTV puts you back in control. Sporting events account for 37 percent of all TV viewing today, and, inevitably, scheduling conflicts will arise. Sports fans often find themselves flipping through channels in an attempt to watch more than one game at a time, only to land on a channel just in time to see the crowd cheering wildly or that a game has ended.
Not a sports fan? With so many quality shows on television these days, and never enough time to watch them all, 4SeTV allows you to customize your TV experience – while maximizing the space on your screen. 4SeTV also gives everyone in your family their very own private TV. 4SeTV’s technology can stream four different shows to four separate devices, so the whole family can watch what they want at the same time.
According to Sam Rosen, Practice Director for ABI Research, “The 4SeTV product is a compelling offering for consumers using free-to-air (FTA) terrestrial programming and wishing to bring TV to other rooms on their tablets, and especially those looking to improve their multi-game sports capabilities for busy game Sundays.”
How it works:
•Content is broadcast (i.e. free HDTV content over the air, clear QAM)
•Broadcast content is captured by 4SeTV hardware
•4SeTV streams the content to connected devices in your home network
With 4SeTV, sports fans get a four-in-one screen-viewing solution that cannot be found with pay-TV options. And with an easy-to-use interface, the 4SeTV app becomes the center of an enhanced viewing experience, giving users control from the palm of their hand. Available for iOS and Android devices, the app allows a smartphone or tablet to easily select and control which four channels are cast to a big-screen TV.
“Like many of us, I love relaxing and watching TV, but my busy life leaves me very little spare time to do so,” said Hyung Lim, president and founder of 4SeTV. “One day I was staring at my big-screen TV, and it hit me – what if I could stream more than one feed at once and make the most of my TV time? Not only have we created the technology to make this a reality and become the only company to offer a four-screen TV experience, we’ve done it in the form of a simple companion device that anyone can use – it’s ready to go right out of the box.”
Coming on the heels of a successful soft launch, the makers of 4SeTV have incorporated user feedback and added enhancements that emphasize the product’s ease of use. 4SeTV is now at the production unit stage and conducted live demonstrations of its device at the Showstoppers media event held on April 12 at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas.
The 4SeTV app is available as a free download in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. To sample the 4SeTV experience, launch the app without the hardware to access Demo Mode, and watch pre-selected sports segments on your TV.
4SeTV is available for pre-order on Kickstarter and is priced at $99 for early adopters. The first units are slated to ship in July. Please access the Kickstarter campaign at (coming soon), and visit the 4SeTV website to receive updates on the status of pre-order availability.
