Twonky Beam

[ This app is no longer available for download ]

If you can browse, you can beam

Twonky Beam provides you with a simple and familiar way to discover and enjoy Internet videos with your tablet or phone and beam them to your TV or other home media players. Twonky Beam also allows you to beam media stored on your mobile device or home media server.

When you visit your favorite websites, or discover new ones, Twonky Beam will display a Twonky Beam button over the beamable media items on the page. The Twonky Beam home page contains links to popular websites with great content you can beam. You can browse many pages at once and create and manage bookmarks of your favorite sites.

A simple tap of the screen will beam the chosen media to your selected player, such as your Airplay-enabled or UPnP-/ DLNA-certified device. Twonky Beam is compatible with popular devices such as Apple TV, Roku, and Xbox 360. You can also enjoy media directly on your tablet or phone.

One of the best ways to use Twonky Beam is with Internet video, but it also works with music and photos. You can also create playlists with a queue of multiple selections that will play continuously in the order you added them, or you can change the order and delete items from your queue. It is always possible to continue browsing, either on the current site or on another site, while your media is playing.

In-app purchase of the Premium DTCP-IP Compatibility feature allows you to access DTCP-IP protected media with Twonky Beam (Requires valid content license and a compatible player for beaming).
