It seems that more and more people are getting their daily dose of television programming from everywhere else other than a television. On that notion, TV start-up NimbleTV presents the latest method to unconventionally stream network television and its beta version, which just rolled out on Friday, appears quite promising.
Following the traditional pay-per-month for cable or satellite television programming, the service allows users to stream content from their home television. Basically its a median between TV watchers and their TV package. The unprecedented style of NimbleTV allows people to pay for television packages from anywhere in the world.
For immigrants who prefer viewing networks from their home country, signing-up for programming from their specific region is now worthwhile. Users can stream their channels on any smart device from anywhere in the world. For people who don’t pay for TV, this could fit in their lifestyle, which directly benefits cable and satellite providers.
TechCrunch describes the service “which streams content from free over-the-air signals, NimbleTV lets users get subscription content by acting as the payment provider between the consumer and the TV provider.”
With the future of television in question, its up to innovations such as this to perpetuate the market continuously forward. Aereo, a similar TV streaming service is currently dealing with some legal issues with major network TV broadcasters. It’s uncertain as to whether NimbleTV will run into related issues but for now, users in America and India can enjoy streaming their network plan from anywhere, with expansion to the rest of the world coming soon.
