ZeeVee has released a third beta version of its Zinc internet-video browser. The application is designed to run on a PC that is connected to a larger display or TV, enabling users to watch videos from the Internet and navigate the interface with a remote control. The update offers an expanded on-demand library, along with new content from Netflix and CBS. The available media now includes almost 15,000 movies and tens of thousands of TV shows.
Startup firm ZeeVee today offered up an unusual take on media streaming hubs with the ZvBox (link active soon). Rather than operate on a traditional home network, the device draws on the raw VGA (or adapted DVI) video output from a computer as well as a user's existing cable TV wiring; linking the two with a ZvBox automatically creates a new 1080i HD station in an unoccupied cable channel that can then be accessed by any HDTV in the home.
