Along with the TakeTV hardware, SanDisk is launching Fanfare, an online video store.

Currently in beta, Fanfare's offerings are pretty slim--but the service is busy cutting deals with content providers to broaden its library.

Once you download videos from the Fanfare service--or simply drag and drop your own DivX, Xvid, or MPEG4 videos to the unit--just unplug it from your PC and move it to the docking unit that attaches to your TV.
