New 4SeTV Streaming Device Brings Four-in-One Viewing Experience to Tablets, Smartphones, Big Screen TVs

Networked TV Tuner Eliminates Missed Plays, Social Media Spoilers

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2015) - The Major League Baseball season, the FA Cup, the Masters Tournament -- so many exciting sporting 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?

Make the Most of Your TV Time
Sports fans rejoice -- a new, easy-to-use TV streaming device from 4SeTV lets you watch any four live television shows at once on a tablet, smartphone or TV. Alternatively, up to four people can view an individual live show of their choice on 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.

Catch Every Big Play as it Happens
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. With 4SeTV, you can freely switch channels during a timeout or instant replay, and be confident that you can switch back to the original game, right on time, every time. Monitor four shows on your mobile device, while you choose which one is shown on the big screen.

Stream Shows to 4 Separate Devices
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."

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.

How it works:

  • Content is broadcast (i.e. free HDTV content over-the-air, clear QAM)
  • It is captured by an antenna and relayed to the 4SeTV device
  • Broadcast content is captured by the 4SeTV device
  • 4SeTV streams the content to connected devices in your home network (smartphones, tablets and TVs)

The 4SeTV App
With 4SeTV, sports fans and TV aficionados get a four-in-one-screen viewing solution for free over-the-air content. For those who have pay-TV, 4SeTV is an ideal companion product to maximize the TV experience as viewers can toggle between over-the-air content and paid channels. 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 will be watched on the device or cast to a big screen TV.

The 4SeTV app will be 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.

"Like many of us, I love relaxing and watching TV, but my busy life leaves me very little spare time to do so," noted 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 streaming device that anyone can use -- it's ready to go right out of the box."

Pre-Order on Kickstarter
Coming on the heels of their 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 yesterday at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas.

4SeTV is available for pre-order on Kickstarter and is priced at $99 for early adopters. The first units are slated to ship in August. Please access the Kickstarter campaign -- and visit the 4SeTV website to receive updates on the status of pre-order availability.
