TV content and movies
Research shows that TV is the ultimate viewing experience for videos, including TV content and movies. At the same time, the personal computer has become the foremost vehicle for searching and downloading digital content. Yet to date, solutions that allow you to download on the one and watch on the other have been thorny and complex.

Added Schreiber: "Years ago, transferring content from one personal computer to another was awkward too. SanDisk made it seamless through our Cruzer USB flash memory drives. We challenged ourselves to bring this same simplicity to transferring video from the PC to the TV. The result is Sansa TakeTV - a best-in-class product that smoothly bridges the gap between these two ecosystems."
