Sezmi Takes Big Step Towards Delivering All-in-One TV Solution


We have all talked about ditching our cable providers one way or the other, but company Sezmi is looking to fill the solution directly. Looks like a pretty cool idea, and they’re getting even closer to rolling out. Prices seem affordable as well, but they should when compared to the TV companies.



In case you forgot, Sezmi plans to roll up live broadcast and cable TV along with web videos, on demand-movies and DVR functionality in a single, easy to navigate set-top box. Needless to say, this is a tall order, and most of us probably relegated Sezmi to the vaporware bin. However, trials of the product have begun in LA and a $25 million cash infusion from investors has given the project new life. In fact, it seems that Sezmi spent the last year working out deals with the likes of Sony Pictures, MGM Studios, Paramount Studios, Warner Brothers, Lion’s Gate Entertainment and Universal Studios for on demand streaming, and ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC, Turner, MTV Networks Discovery Channel, Telemundo and Univision for TV content.
