Ford lets passengers stream live TV in-car with the 2018 Expedition

Ford Motor Company’s live TV streaming is just one part of its connectivity additions to the 2018 Expedition, which also offers a Wi-Fi hotspot option with support for connections of up to 10 devices simultaneously, with a range of 50 feet around the car, so that you can park and play if you’re camping or tailgating for instance. The streaming system is the more interesting and unique component, however, and works with two 8-inch screens embedded in the back of the front seat headrests. These work with SlingPlayer on a mobile app to control streaming from a home Slingbox system, which essentially passes on a live satellite or cable feed, complete with remote control. – Darrell Etherington, TechCrunch
