XStreamHD still kicking, showing off updated hardware

Steven Kim

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 emphasis on hardware -- taking center stage was the new Pro HD Media Receiver, which has 7.1 analog outputs that make us happy. We saw that the booth was actually hooked up to a satellite connection, but sadly we can't share photos of the data closet with you. Just so we don't finish on a low note, the company is planning to accept beta testers later this year for the service -- let's hope there's some programming to test that comes from somewhere outside your home's walls.
