Fanhattan unveils Fan TV STB for an improved entertainment experience

MUMBAI: Fanhattan, which is an entertainment technology company based in Silicon Valley has come out with Fan TV - an input 1 set-top box. This brings live TV, cloud DVR and streaming services all together in one place, with a touch remote. The device will allow users to access movies and shows.

Fanhattan is backed by the investors behind Tivo, Netflix and Sonos.

The company designed Fan TV in partnership with Yves B??har. The touch remote with zero buttons fits in the palm of one’s hand.

fuseproject founder Yves B??har said, "Fan TV is the deepest and most magical entertainment experience. Everything about Fan TV is about cohesiveness between hardware and user interface, when others still look at these elements separately," said.

Fan TV eliminates the need for a scavenger hunt across multiple devices and remotes when figuring out what to watch.

Fanhattan CEO Gilles BianRosa said, "With the rapidly growing number of entertainment choices, services and technologies, finding what to watch and how to watch it has become way too complicated. People don?t need a stack of devices in their living room, each delivering only part of their entertainment experience. Fan TV will replace the need for a separate cable box, DVR and streaming device, and will streamline your living room by bringing your entertainment life into one beautiful place."

Fan TV will be available later this year, and will be complemented by a multi-screen experience that lets users discover, watch and share on-the-go. Fanhattan also is rebranding its free entertainment service Fan on iOS and the web. The web app is emerging from a limited private beta test and is now open to the public.

Fan integrates 29 streaming services making more than 100,000 movies and shows available to watch instantly across iOS and the web. On the TV, Fan will be working with many of its existing streaming partners for over-the-top content and leading pay TV providers for live TV and cloud DVR, to bring its service to America?s living rooms.
