Feature to arrive first for beta testers
Cable TV provider RCN has confirmed plans to allow customers to stream video between TiVo Premier set-top boxes. The company's director of video product and video operations, Jason Nealis, has informed beta testers that the multi-room streaming functionality will arrive in a software update. Other improvements include support for an iPad app, video-on-demand previews, and a revamped UI.
The beta details, which were posted on DSLReports forums, confirm that RCN plans to deploy the new software in production "very soon," however the company has yet to make a formal announcement or provide a detailed time-frame for the public launch. [via Zatz Not Funny]
