To say that Lookee TV has an immense content offering in its Wi-Fi connected portable Internet TV and radio player would not be an understatement. You could seriously watch or listen to something different every day for the next TEN years.

This pocket-sized (4.3”) device opens the broadcast media floodgates.  LookeeTV provides access to over 2,000 television channels, 30,000 radio stations and podcasts worldwide and get this – there is no subscription fee.

The Lookee TV device (which is available in a desktop version as well) also acts as a media player for your local media files. You can stream video, music and pictures from your home or office PC by universal plug & play protocols.  Additionally, its TV-out function allows you to watch internet TV channels, radio stations, and podcasts on your home TV and turn a regular home TV to an “Internet TV”.

The technology used allows partnering with any online video, music or photo sources, and the team at Lookee TV is working to increase the number of add-ons going forward, making the system adaptable.  This allows users to stream more movies, recent TV shows and more music from featured online sources as time goes on.

Here’s the complete list of features:

  • Stream over 2000 TV channels and over 30,000 radio stations and podcasts throughout the world via Wi-Fi connection.
