HDTV Is Here Now!
Today 95% of all households in the U.S. can receive HDTV from at least one network broadcaster. And more than 85% can receive an HDTV signal from three or more network broadcasters.

Enjoy all the clarity and brilliance of crystal clear HDTV broadcasts on your PC monitor instead of buying a new HDTV. HDTV broadcast's look better because they have up to 6 times the resolution of standard TV broadcasts and many broadcasts include Dolby 5.1 Audio so HDTV sounds better too! And HDTV is FREE - HD Shows are broadcast over the air, no need for cable TV or satellite subscriptions. Just add Instant HDTV PCI and a TV antenna to receive HDTV! If you still have analog Cable TV in your house you can also use the Instant HDTV PCI to receive standard TV and Cable broadcasts in addition to HDTV broadcasts.

Full Featured Personal Video Recorder Capabilities
Instant HDTV PCI includes SnapStream's Beyond TV which transforms your PC into a home theatre powerhouse with a powerful integrated electronic program guide. Beyond TV lets you see "What's On" and watch it now or schedule for future recording. Beyond TV incorporates powerful Digital TV capabilities that allow you to Pause, Fast Forward and Rewind Live TV as well as recorded programs. You have the power to program recordings of future airings by searching the electronic program guide by title or keyword.
