Hauppauge have announced a new Mobile TV Streaming solution which you get to carry around to beam live TV to your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. It’s just a matter of extending the antenna and then you connect your device to the “myTV 2GO” WiFi network. The free app then lets you watch the digital (freeview) transmissions.
Costing £119 there’s no subscription, no data and no additional costs. It basically just turns your phone into a TV screen. Boom.
The magical box should give you around three and a half hours of battery life and promises a good picture quality even in remote locations.
Hauppauge tell us that an Android version of the app is planned, but as yet there’s no ETA.
