XStreamHD is the videophile's digital distribution dream, but a dream is what it has remained for almost three years. The bad news is the 1TB Whole Home Media Server and clients aren't shipping yet, but the good news is one of the big studios has signed a deal with XStreamHD to distribute titles da

We've been following XStreamHD for a few years now and have often wondered if it would ever make it to market. One of the looming questions just got answered today though as the company has announced a deal to deliver 1080p HD movies via Echostar's AMC-16. This is a step in the right direction, but

XStreamHD is going to be launching in a few months so of course we stopped by the booth to get a quick look. The user interface is modern and sleek with a focus on cover art -- it seemed snappy from our brief time with it. One thing we missed when we let you know about the ability to pre-order is t

No we can't believe it either, but it actually looks like we can take XstreamHD off the vaporware list in a few months. Now there are no guarantees in life, but starting today you can pay $25 for the right to one of the first XstreamHD systems off the assembly line. The reminder of the $399 bill wi

XStreamHD picked the Satellite 2009 show (aren't you mad you didn't go now? we are) to demonstrate its advanced graphical user interface, moving things just a bit closer to reality after finally having some satellite delivered 1080p to show us at CES in January. A content parter or two would go eve

So the XStreamHD presser isn't until Friday, but we stopped by the booth at CES to check up on what the company's been up to for the past year. After all, our interest has been piqued by the recent satellite connectivity test. Luckily for our camera (but sadly for content), there's been a solid emp

So we rolled into XStreamHD's booth hoping to get some more details on the newcomer to the HD satellite field. Lo and behold, we didn't find a lot of clues at the booth. The press conference announced a working demo of 1080p content at the booth, so we were more than a little crushed when we showed

We just got a glimpse of the XStreamHD box to share. Details on the service are thin at this point, but here's some pictures of the hardware. Both the Media Library unit and the Media Receiver boxes are here in all their mysterious glory. With no studios signed on yet, our hopes for this setup are

Just a few hours before our live coverage of the XStreamHD press event (11am PST) with Michael Douglas; many of the details have been released and we have to say this thing looks so incredible, we don't see how it can live up to the press release -- this is one of those times when we'd really love

Our buddy MegaZone over at TiVo Lovers has brought together the bits and pieces of info regarding XStreamHD, and while a picture is starting to emerge (sorry), there are still some key questions to be answered. First, what is known: the company will use leased satellite bandwidth to stream HD cont

It's thin on details, but XstreamHD has announced its entry into the direct-to-home HD distribution market. The service uses existing geosynchronous satellites to move content to an antenna at your home and then into a proprietary media server for distribution throughout the premises. The press re
