Orb Networks is laying claim to being the first company to provide live TV streams to Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch devices.
In yesterday’s announcement, Orb said that it created a special application, called OrbLive, to enable the streaming of any video format to iPhones. The application allows iPhone users to access programming, such as live sporting events and breaking news.
Apple’s iPhone users can also access Internet TV and Webcam content through Orb’s application.
“TV on the iPhone is now real,” said Joe Costello, CEO of Orb Networks. “OrbLive finally brings the iPhone’s streaming video experience up to par with other mobile phones.”
Orb said that it was the first company to enable the live streaming of TV from users’ homes to almost any mobile phone with a streaming player and a Web browser.
