By using the new EyeTV Mobile created by Elgato in conjunction with new partner Dyle–a live mobile television broadcast service–users of both the iPhone and the iPad can watch streaming live TV on those devices. Even better? Utilizing EyeTV means your device will pick up the broadcast signal using a built-in antenna, which means you won’t use up any of your previous data viewing live TV.
Dyle’s service, which is really just an extension of standard broadcast television services offers channels like NBC, FOX, Telemundo and a children’s channel called Qubo. The service is available in major metro areas such as Atlanta to Boston, and Phoenix to Seattle. Previously users could view the Dyle streaming television service on any Dyle-compatible device, and now through the new partnership with Elgato and their EyeTV users of Apple iOS devices can now do the same.
Elgato has long since been working to get live television delivered to your Mac and iOS devices and found a great platform in EyeTV–essentially a built-in antenna that allows you to pick up television broadcast signals–in this case Dyle’s broadcast television streams. The EyeTV plugs directly into your device via a 30-pin Dock connector, however users of the new iPhone 5, iPad 4 and iPad Mini will need an adapter for the EyeTV dock.
The EyeTV mobile costs just $99 and is perfect for those who are looking for an easy way to watch local television programming live on their iOS device or those who do not have the patience to wait for their favorite television episodes to hit Hulu or Netflix. The device can be purchased through Amazon or the Elgato website.
