Sony announces a new gadget in its Locationfree line. The Sony Locationfree LF-PK1 is a TV place shift device, that enables consumers to watch TV via the Internet.

Sony's other Locationfree devices are wireless TVs. The new locationfree device is comparable to the Slingbox from Sling Media.
The Sony LF-PK1 connects wirelessly to a PCs or other devices running a Sony media streaming software (LFA-PC2).
I first thought the LF-PK1 needs a PC to enable outside access to view live TV from the net, but I4U reader Sam convinced me that this is not the case. So Sony is head on competing with Slingmedia. The Location free LF-PK1 goes on sale in Japan in October for about $300. More details in the Sony press-release (Japanese).
