zilliontv logoIf ZillionTV has their way, paying a monthly bill to cable and satellite providers may become a thing of the past.

No one liks paying their cable company or satellite company those high monthly subscription fees, but what can you do if you want to watch current television shows?  What if there was a company that allowed you to pay them a one time fee for a device that could then stream free content to your TV via the Internet for life?

While this may sound like a radical idea, it is exactly what the folks at ZillionTV are going to try to do.

zbarAfter you purchase the “ZBar”, which will be priced somewhere under $100, you will have 24/7 access to on-demand programming that will be subscription free.  The programming will include a mixture of content from 20th Century Fox Television to new releases and a selection of library titles from The Walt Disney Studios, NBC Universal, Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution.  The content will be free to watch in an ad-supported format, but there will also be a mixture of programming you can rent to watch without ads as well as some that you can purchase to own.

To make the advertising less obtrusive, you will have some say in what ads are streamed to you by choosing which categories of products and services interest you.  To further encourage you to interact with the ads, they will also be launching a loyalty program that will reward you for the content and ads that you choose to explore.

The only drawback to the service is that it will require some pretty substantial speeds from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to deliver the content to you.  Standard definition viewing will require speeds of 3 Mbps, while high definition content will require 7 Mbps.  So while you may escape paying for cable programming, you will have to continue to have high speed access, and you will also have to see how this may effect any bandwidth caps you have with your ISP.

Currently ZillionTV will only be available only by an invite-only Beta program, which you can apply to here.  The devices are expected to be available widely to the mass market by the end of the year.
