DVBLink is a product by DVB Logic that acts as a personal TV server. Server software can run on a variety of computers, including a Raspberry Pi, and allows users to stream live TV or record it to watch later. A live TV app has great potential for success on Android TV, and DVBLink has already been working on creating a great user experience.
In December they posted a link to a beta version of their Live Channels app, DVBLink Live. This app only allowed users to stream live from their DVBLink server, without time shifting support or watching recorded shows.
DVBLink is now getting updated to version 6, which “will feature lean-back apps for Android TV and AppleTV platforms”. A company spokesman said this release should be expected sometime in April.
The app will be pretty extensive, including “a TV guide, recording management, live TV, and recorded viewing.” However, the apps will only be front ends. The recording and streaming itself will come from the DVBLink server that you’ll still have to set up on a separate computer. Then users will be able to access their media from all of their devices.
