What is Twonky Beam ?

Twonky Beam is a free, easy to use iOS and Android app that helps you discover your favorite music, movies, and videos and control or "beam" them to other devices for sharing, playing and viewing.

Whether you want to catch up on your favorite shows during your morning commute, send your favorite workout playlist from your desktop computer to your phone, "beam" your favorite YouTube video to your TV or share your vacation photos with family across the country, Twonky Beam makes it simple.

Flexible enough to work with the myriad media devices available, Townky Beam lets you "beam" your media to Xbox 360 game consoles, Roku streaming players, Apple TV, AT&T U-verse systems, multiple models of connected televisions, and DLNA devices. It automatically adapts the media to the receiving device so you can enjoy listening to your favorite music, catching up on your favorite shows and share your favorite videos in the best way possible.

Unlike proprietary solutions that only work within a closed environment, Twonky's comprehensive solution works across brands, operating systems and industry standards to bridge the gap between mobile devices and the living room.
