Simple.tv now lets you share your DVR recordings with your cord-cutting friends

Connected DVR maker Simple.tv just launched a new feature that will make it easier for users to share TV shows with their friends and family — and in turn possibly get Simple.tv a few new customers. Owners of Simple.tv’s DVR for cord cutters can now set up guest passes to let others access their DVR recordings over the internet. […] Guest passes aren’t the only new feature Simple.tv is rolling out. The startup also just updated its Android app with a more traditional, cable-like grid TV guide in addition to its existing content-based guide. A similar update for the Simple.tv iOS app is on its way, and [Mark Ely,CEO] said that this guide will be coming to the Windows 8 and Windows Phone apps soon, too. Both updates will be available to owners of Simple.tv’s first- and second-generation hardware. – Janko Roettgers,Gigaom
