FilmOn unleash Teleport Technology

Controversial FilmOn have thrown down the gauntlet rather with the launch of what they call Teleport Technology. This technological innovation, FilmOn say, “frees consumers to watch what they want, where they want, when they want it and helps independent broadcasters across the country flourish despite the efforts of the establishment to squeeze their profits out of existence.”

Users can now access remote desktops connected to FilmOn’s remote antenna and DVR system without any additional hardware or software. The experience, they say, is similar to watching a screen on a distant computer — but with TV quality definition. An individual can make a single non-public connection to a free public broadcast selected from hundreds of local free to air channels in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, Miami, Boston, Tampa, Denver, Atlanta, Dallas, Phoenix, Washington DC.

“I’m tired of the majors screwing you, screwing me, and screwing the entire industry, by trying to shut down progress,” says unabashedly bellicose FilmOn founder and CEO Alki David. “TV is facing the same crossroads that the music industry did in the Napster era — making the wrong decisions right now could be fatal. We won’t let the fat cats of broadcasting stifle technology and drive the independent stations out of business.”
