SageTV makes a handy media center application for Windows and Linux PCs, which does all kinds of good things, but mostly it turns your computer into a powerful DVR. The company makes and sells a companion app called SageTV Placeshifter for tapping into the media center to control and watch live or recorded TV from any computer connected to the Internet, much like a SlingBox. Today its announced a version of Placeshifter for Mac OS X. Yay.
So if you’re one of those people that has a Windows- or Linux-based PC set up to record TV, you can now access it with your Mac OS X computers. Assuming you’re using SageTV to record stuff. Which you totally should be, now that you can access the stuff on three different OS platforms.
The Mac Placeshifter will be available this month as part of a $99.95 bundle with SageTV Media Center. Additional concurrent placeshifting connections will be available for $29.99 each.
