Hands-on: Simple.TV might be the next big cord-cutting device
CNET goes hands-on with the Simple.TV over-the-air DVR and its apps for the iPad and Roku 2 XS.
Simple.TV: The unconventional over-the-air DVR
Simple.TV's DVR without a hard drive or video output may sound crazy, but it could end up being a killer product for cable-cutters. That's the impression I got after spending some hands-on time with the over-the-air-friendly DVR, which was already working on an iPad and a Roku 2 XS box in the booth.
You can import your recorded programs right into iTunes, allowing you to offload shows onto an iPhone or iPad. It's a great solution for when you're planning to take a long flight without Wi-Fi, but I can already foresee legal threats from TV networks.
