Inc., the industry leader in providing personal computer-based TV receivers, and Orb
Networks, the pioneering software developer that gives consumers instant access to their

summer sporting events, most importantly, 2006 FIFA World Cup™ soccer.

“Hauppauge WinTV users can now watch TV streamed from their home anywhere in the
world on virtually any Web-enabled mobile device,” said Ken Plotkin, CEO of
Hauppauge. “Our customers will have an unparalleled amount of freedom and control to
watch their favorite shows or sporting events wherever they may be. Everyone knows
soccer is one of Europe’s greatest passions and now fans don’t have to miss a moment of

“When it comes to watching TV, consumers now have control of both the place and the
time to enjoy their favorite shows – it’s really quite exciting,” said Jim Behrens, CEO of

you can watch all 64 World Cup matches live or recorded on your Web-enabled mobile
device, whether you are in the office, on a lunch break or taking the train home from

“Or imagine being on holiday in Rimini and watching your favorite local soccer team
play a match while you are sitting on the beach,” Behrens said. “That match is being
streamed directly from your home PC to your mobile device. That’s the kind of freedom
that WinTV PVR and Orb brings you.”
Right from the native Web browser and streaming media player of their mobile phone or
PDA, consumers can watch live TV, enjoy previously recorded shows, and schedule
future recordings. No special mobile software from Orb is required.

The free Orb software on the user’s home PC streams TV to any mobile device with a
