TV2Me is a device that enables customers to access their cable or satellite television channels from anywhere in the world via a broadband internet connection, launched in 2003 by Ken Schaffer. This is described as 'spaceshifting', as opposed to 'timeshifting'. For copyright reasons, the signal from a TV2Me unit can only be accessed by one customer, although it can support more video streams with sufficient bandwidth. It requires a minimum upstream of 384 kbit/s.
