Playcast, a television channel-based cloud gaming service for set-top boxes, tablets, smartphones and PCs, will launch early next year in the United States.

Playcast Media System is launching a large-scale pilot of its streaming game service today, which pulls audio and visual data from offsite computers in a way similar to OnLive and Gaikai. So, have the two big names been one-upped? Well, not exactly. See, Playcast’s service is only launching in Israel — for now.
The service promises “Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 quality games” using only a cable provider or Telco set-top box.
Fret not, however, if you’re itching to (potentially) stream some games this year. As of now, Playcast’s offering is set to launch in “major markets in the US, Europe and Asia” in 2009 and 2010. Exactly when and where, though, still remains a mystery.
Full release after the break.
