Will demo at Cable Show in Chicago June 14-16
Internet content company Chumby Industries and digital video device manufacturer Pace have collaborated on a set of applications to run on Pace's Internet-connected television set-top boxes. Chumby had previously focused on managing content through stand-alone Chumby-branded and third party devices such as the Sony Dash and Best Buy Insignia Infocast Internet Media Display. Chumby apps are also available for the Android OS.
There are approximately 1,500 apps available for Chumby-powered devices, including widgets for news and social media sites, and streaming media such as Pandora and Netflix.
The companies will demo the chumby apps for set-top boxes at this year's Cable Show in Chicago, June 14-16.
