Blu-ray Comes to Orb TV
Orb Networks announced at CES that it's bringing its Orb TV technology to Blu-ray. Through a special disc retailing for just $19.95, Orb will bring its streaming service through any PlayStation 3 or connected Blu-ray player.
The new setup provides "all the functionality of Orb TV and more," the company's CEO, Joe Costello, said in an interview Thursday. That includes access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube and all of the photos, videos and music on the user's computer- except now it's available in HD.
The disc costs just $19.95 which, combined with Blu-ray players, adds up to less than the cost of Apple TV, Google TV some of the company's other competitors, Costello said.
