With self-publishers of compelling content such as Video Blogs and Podcasts becoming mainstream, MediaTuner allows users to organize and easily time-shift their new internet viewing and listening habits. I know that from my own personal experience, I now watch less TV, and everyday logon to watch and listen to my favorite Video Blogs and Podcasts".

MediaTuner is different than FireANT in that you click and choose which videos you want to watch and then MediaTuner plays them for you, getting the media from the remote site.
With FireANT, the videos that you have already subscribed to are sitting there on your computer, waiting for you to view. You can also then grab the video and, if the license allows it, use it to create something new from it.
