Broadcast-TV-On-Net Service Pushes Ahead

Bamboom Labs, the latest company seeking to redistribute broadcast TV signals over the Internet, is inviting viewers in New York to become beta testers of the service. Based in Long Island City, N.Y., Bamboon proposes to serve subscribers and circumvent copyright laws that have frustrated others by assigning each sub his or her own antenna and space in the Bamboom cloud. Subs can either stream the broadcast signals to their desktops or mobile broadband devices live or record them for playback at their convenience.
