XStreamHD, Lionsgate partner on streaming movies

A newcomer to the streaming Video-on-Demand market, XStreamHD, has partnered with Lionsgate to bring the latter's library of more than 12,000 titles to viewers' homes. XStream HD users will have the option of either renting or purchasing digital copies of Lionsgate movies in HD. The implementation needs XStream's HD entertainment system that provides 1080p HD video playback, 7.1-channel audio and DTS-HD Master Audio support, though it has yet to launch.

The hardware will give users multi-room access to Pre-Fetched Entertainment (PFE). Lionsgate content will be released on the same date as the DVD version.

The upcoming XStreamHD FAST Start package includes one HD Media Server with 1TB storage, one HD Media Receiver, one RF remote control, and all of the accessories, including the needed Ethernet and HDMI cables. A PRO Start package includes the same content as the FAST Start package along with an upgraded HD PRO Media Receiver, which replaces the HD Media Receiver. The FAST Start package is priced at only $399 while the Pro Start package will be offered for $499. Larger, 2TB and 4TB storage configurations will also be available with both starter packages.
