PCTV Systems, a division of Hauppauge Digital Inc, today announced Android support for the recently launched Broadway 2T. The Broadway will now allow users to redirect their home TV and personal video content to Android devices (version 2.2 and above with Adobe Flash capable browser), as well as iPhones, iPads, netbooks, notebooks or Mac computers, anywhere in the world. All personal home content and TV channels are accessible via the web browser anytime, anywhere in the world without the need for any third party apps or any additional purchases.
“It has been predicted that Google’s Android mobile-operating system will represent 40% of smartphones in 2011. Currently the operating system is available on over 300 different smartphones and tablets. The Broadway has been well received by Apple users so far, so offering Android support is a natural business decision for us ensuring we fulfil the demands and requirements of all our customers,” said Yehia Oweiss, Vice President of Sales EMEA of Hauppauge Digital. “Holiday season is the perfect time to take advantage of the Broadway. We have all been stuck in a foreign country not being able to understand local language TV. If you are away on business and you don’t want to miss England play the World Cup, or if you are trying to entertain your family whilst in a villa in France or a chalet in Switzerland, the Broadway’s ability to direct your home TV or other connected video signals live to your mobile device allows you to easily get around that problem. You don’t have to miss any of the great sporting events lined up or the next episode of your favourite TV show. No matter where you are in the world, your home TV is always with you – It’s that simple,” Oweiss continued.
The Broadway 2T is available from £199.99
