Sony Adds Placeshifting to LocationFree Station

This site has moved to

Sony announced a newer version of their LocationFree LF-PK 1 device now with place-shifting abilities. It basically uses your internet connection to stream your local TV to the remote location. Besides that you can use the device to stream throughout your home using 802.11 a/b/g. You need to install a software (LFA - PC2) to be able to play the stream content on the PC. It will cost about $33000 yen (about $300) for the station and about 2000 yen for software. LocationFree will hit the stores of Japan on October 1. No word if it'll be sold outside of Japan.
