Startup NimbleTV is launching a test of a service to allow pay-TV customers to transfer all of a subscription's programming online for streaming. The service is akin to a virtual version of Slingbox, which allows users to access their DVR content, but without need of boxes, according to this article. NimbleTV hopes to avoid the litigation that has embroiled Aereo, a startup that streams broadcast content, by acting as an "agent" for users who are subscribing to cable or satellite plans.
