New 4SeTV streaming device brings four-in-one viewing experience to tablets, smartphones and TVs

From the NCAA Basketball Tournament to the FA Cup, NBA, NFL, NASCAR, the Masters Tournament, etc. – so many exciting sporting events, and so little time. 

On any given day, sports fans will be forced to choose which event they want to watch live, relegating simultaneous games to DVR status, where catching the action in real-time is impossible and social media spoilers are probable. 

What if you didn't have to choose between your favorite teams? With 4SeTV you don't have to!

Make the Most of Your TV Time:

With so many quality shows on TV these days, and never enough time to watch them all, 4SeTV lets you customize your TV experience – while maximizing the space on your big screen TV. With 4SeTV, sports fans get a four-in-one-screen viewing solution that cannot be found with pay-TV options. It’s the first-ever device that lets you select and watch four channels on the same screen. Using an iOS or Android mobile device, users can select any four channels with a simple touch interface on the 4SeTV App.

Catch Every Big Play as it Happens:

Never miss another play. No more flipping through channels trying to watch more than one game at a time – only to land on a channel just in time to see the crowd cheering wildly or that a game has ended. With 4SeTV, you can freely switch channels during a timeout or instant replay, and be confident that you can switch back to the original game, right on time, every time. It puts you in control – letting you monitor four shows on your mobile device, while you choose which one is shown on the big screen.

Stream Shows to 4 Separate Devices:

Can’t agree on what programs to watch? 4SeTV gives four people in the same house, dorm or location their very own private TV. 4SeTV can stream different shows to 4 separate devices, so family and friends can watch what they want at the same time. Built on patent pending technology, 4SeTV uses free, over-the-air broadcasting and streams the HD content you want to see to a smartphone, tablet or TV in your home network.

No TV? No Problem!

4SeTV brings your favorite live TV shows to your iOS and Android devices – no TV necessary. Want to watch more? It can also stream 4 live channels at once! Audio is then selected by touching the channel you want to hear.

In the News

“Sports fans and news junkies may get a kick out of this one: 4SeTV lets you watch four live TV feeds at once.” – GigaOM

“If you’re the sort who doesn’t like flipping between channels to keep up with what’s happening on multiple stations, a new startup [4SeTV] has designed a set-top box just for you.”
– Digital Trends 

“The 4SeTV product is a compelling offering for consumers.” – ABI Research 

“Best comeback (startup category): 4SeTV, a device that gives users a "mosaic" view of up to 4 TV channels... Founder Hyung Lim was on hand at a preshow event demonstrating his improved device and touting the success of the company's second Kickstarter campaign, which quickly surpassed its $50,000 goal.” – FierceOnlineVideo 

“[4SeTV] lets you multitask like never before when it comes to viewing your television shows.”

Why We Made 4SeTV:

Like you – we love relaxing and watching TV, but our busy lives leave us very little spare time to do so. One day, our founder was staring at his big screen TV, and thought – what if there was a way to stream more than one feed at once and make the most of his TV time? Not only have we created the technology to make this a reality and become the only company to offer a four screen TV experience, we've done it in the form of a simple streaming device that anyone can use – it’s ready to go right out of the box.

Our Team

We've partnered with Korean-based Digital Multimedia Technology (DMT), a 15 year old company that ships millions of set-top-boxes to payTV operators in various countries each year. With this great manufacturing partner, we are prepared to take 4SeTV into mass production. 

Evolution of 4SeTV HW
Evolution of 4SeTV HW

We want to get 4SeTV out to you as fast as possible, so you can be in control of you own 4-screen TV experience! We expect to begin shipping first units in August. 

Timeline

We are also working to build support for additional sources of content. While the 4SeTV platform works great with over the air content today, bringing additional programming from cable, satellite, and the internet will even further enhance the 4 screen viewing experience. With your support, we'll continue to bring additional features and improvements to 4SeTV.

Your support and pledge will help us take the final hardware design into mass production and make it happen.

Risks and challenges

MASS PRODUCTION:
While we have worked extremely hard to develop and test the hardware to get it ready for mass production, our 20+ years of experience in the electronics industry tells us that there is always some level of risk with initial production launches. To ensure that our production run is smooth, we are working with a manufacturing partner that has shipped millions of units to many of the major players in the worldwide TV industry.

APP DEVELOPMENT:
We are working relentlessly to ensure you have the best possible experience when you first launch the 4SeTV app, but we also recognize that initial releases are never going to be perfect. With your early feedback, our team of developers will continue to improve the app and provide you with timely updates and all of the latest enhancements.
