Simple.tv is bringing its DVR for cord cutters to Ouya

Simple.tv will launch an app for its over-the-air DVR on Ouya devices next year. The app will bring live and recorded TV to the Android-based game console, provided that users also own Simple.tv’s networked DVR. The company announced Thursday that it will preview an app for Simple.tv at CES in January, where it will also show off a first implementation of a cloud DVR. Simple.tv CEO Mark Ely first told me in July that the company was thinking about adding a cloud-based DVR as a supplemental feature to its device.
