    DirecTV appears to have its sights set on Slingbox with a new platform, called Nomad.

    The satellite provider launched a page on its site recently, showcasing a device that connects to the customer's DVR and allows them to stream programming to other devices, including computers, smartphones andtablets.

    "Take your movies and shows from your home DVR where you go," the Nomad site reads.

    If DirecTV follows through with a Nomad competitor, it wouldn't be much of a surprise. EchoStar, which is closely affiliated with DirecTV's chief competitor, Dish Network, owns Sling Media. Sling made a name for itself in the home-entertainment space by offering a box that connects to any DVR and lets users control the DVR and watch TV programming from computers and mobile devices.

    Late last year, Dish upped the ante a bit by launching its free Remote Access app foriPad users. The application, which requires users to have certain DVRs and a $99 Sling Adapter in order to work, lets folks watch live television and control their DVRs wherever they are. It would only make sense that DirecTV would want to respond with a solution of its own. However, exactly how DirecTV will do so remains to be seen.

    The satellite company did not immediately respond to CNET's request for more information on Nomad.
