CES: Canonical shows off Ubuntu TV

All the TV services you want, in one place

Canonical is showing off what it describes as 'an exciting concept design' at the CES tradeshow in Las Vegas, this week - Ubuntu TV. UPDATE: CES: hands on with Ubuntu TV

 Ubuntu TV is, according to Canonical, "a vision of how TV will work in the future". It has, the Ubuntu Linux maker says: "no cables, no boxes and no hassles" and offers all the TV services users have become used to, without any of the complicated set up and delivery.

According to Canonical Ubuntu TV offers in one place easy integration of broadcast TV, online TV services and applications. You can search, watch, record and play television programmes, as well as watching millions of movies and TV shows, on demand,  over the web. Canonical says Ubuntu TV offers a "shared-screen experience with iOS, Android and Ubuntu devices". You can find out more at ubuntu.com/tv.

I'll be meeting with Canonical at CES, and hopefully getting a chance to play with Ubuntu TV... so tune in again for more!
