Burnaby, British Columbia - Lookee TV, Canadian-based marketers of connected TV streaming entertainment devices, said it is adding an app for DVR-like recording of Internet-delivered audio content to its family of devices.
The company is using a digital audio recording system from DAR.fm, which will allow
users to record Internet radio stations and programs to a free 2GB online content locker storage system maintained by DAR.fm partner MP3tunes.
The Lookee TV devices can then be used to play back stored content on demand.
Lookee TV currently offers a 7-inch and 4.3-inch LCD HD desktop players, a 4.3-inch LCD portable player and an HD set-top Internet TV box. The units with built-in displays also include speakers, and, like the set-top box, have the ability to connect to TVs via HDMI or component video for big-screen video playback at up to 720p HD resolution.
All the Lookee TV players also include a number of entertainment apps and functions with a growing list of content partners. Current partners include: FilmOn, MediaFly, Vimeo, Blubrry, FlickStream, MP3tunes and DAR.fm.
The Lookee TV devices connect to broadband service via Wi-Fi or optional Ethernet connection and include SD card slots for access to additional stored media.
Other functions include an FM radio and dual alarm clock, photo slide show player, and content streaming from a PC via UPnP function.
The company is currently looking for retail partners and is selling its 4.3-inch desktop player direct from its website at a $180 suggested retail.
