One of the most interesting and attractive new features that Panasonic has introduced to its 2014 smart TVs is TV Anywhere . This revolutionary feature allows you to enjoy all the contents of the TV through a tablet or a smartphone anywhere in the world. The only requirement is to enjoy an Internet connection , either via WiFi or even a mobile connection. TV Anywhere is available on the brand's smart TVs since the Panasonic AS650 version . We tell you how this tool works to carry the TV in our pocket.
Of all the features that 2014 has brought in terms of Smart TV , one of the most innovative and promising concepts that we have come across is TV Anywhere. The idea behind this service is simple. Allow the user to access the contents of their television through a smartphone or tablet anywhere. The breaking point is that access is done through the cloud , so it is not necessary to be connected to the same WiFi network. For example, the user can be in another country and connect through the hotel's WiFi to watch a football match that is being shown in Spain.
To begin using TV Anywhere , a critical step is to create a personal My Home Cloud account. Using TV Anywhere also requires the dedicated application download TV Remote App 2 from Panasonic , available for both smartphones and tablets Android and for iPhone and iPad . It is through this application that we can connect to the cloud and access television content wirelessly. For example, if we have downloaded the last chapter of a series on the hard drive connected to the TV, we can access the content directly through the app.
This access can be done through a WiFi network such as a hotel or a friend's house, or through a 3G / 4G mobile network . Of course, in this case we will have to pay attention to our data rate since its use may entail additional expenses (those marked by the operator itself). However, the functionality of TV Anywhere does not end there, since users can also access the live content shown on one of the DTT television channels. One case that has ever happened to us is traveling to another country and not being able to see a Champions League match involving our favorite team because it is not shown on local television. With TV Anywherethis channel can be accessed directly.
So that users who are at home can watch a different channel than the one we are watching on the tablet, we must bet on one of the models that has a double tuner. In these cases, even one of the users can be watching a channel while the other is watching a movie from the hard disk. The operation of TV Anywhere does not require the TV is on. And it is that when we turn off the TV it remains in a standby state that allows remote access to it, and that has a very small energy expenditure . In short, a really interesting function that promises to give a lot of war. Have you been able to test this feature? What opinion do you deserve?
