A new interesting feature for wireless TV streaming will land soon on Samsung’s Galaxy Tabs.
Previously announced at IFA 2011, users of the Samsung D7000 or D8000 HDTV’s will be able to stream wirelessly programs to all Galaxy Tabs. The software to receive the signal will come pre-loaded on Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 while users of the original Galaxy Tab will be able to download the app within a month from Samsung App Store.
So how does it work? The HDTVs will be able to stream channels by transcoding the signal and sending it to the Galaxy Tab wirelessly. The app is basically a remote control software with lots of interesting features where users will be able to watch TV from their devices through the “watch TV option”. It will also allow those interested to use the slate by watching a different program from the one showing on TV. By using this feature you will notice a bit of lag and this is because it takes time for the TV to transcode the live stream and send it to the Galaxy Tab.
The app will also be available on Android smartphones and will come pre-loaded on Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1, while those who have a Galaxy Tab 7-inch will be able to download the app from the AppStore.
