Elgato introduces EyeTV Mobile accessory for iOS devices

Tuesday 20 November 2012 | 12:00 CET | News
German TV software and hardware developer Elgato has launched EyeTV Mobile accessory, a Dyle mobile TV compliant TV tuner for iOS devices that will turn iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone devices into portable TV’s. The accessory connects to iOS devices directly via the dock connector to bring live TV to consumers. The ATSC-Mobile tuner receives mobile TV signals from a miniature antenna for use on-the-go, or a rod antenna, which provides range at home or in the office. Consumers can access live TV with the free EyeTV Mobile application, which provides a full range of TV viewing features including pause/ resume capacities and access to detailed EPG information. The EyeTV Mobile accessory connects to a consumer’s iOS dock connector and enables consumers to get live news, sports, and entertainment programming from participating stations, such as local FOX and NBC TV stations (differs by market). The tuner receives the television signal from an antenna so it does not require an internet connection or use up any mobile data.

Working with the free EyeTV Mobile App, the tuner also allows viewers to get a full range of TV viewing features on their iPad, iPod Touch or iPhones, displaying live broadcast TV from participating Dyle stations. Users can access any other stations that may be broadcasting to mobile in a specific market. Dyle TV is available from more than 90 stations in 35 markets, reaching approximately 55 percent of the US population. The EyeTV Mobile accessory uses the broadcast industry standard technology of ATSC-Mobile. It comes with a miniature aerial (MCX), a rod aerial with magnetic base and removable suction cup, a printed Quick Start Guide, and a USB charging cable.

The EyeTV Mobile application requires iOS 5.1 (or newer), and the accessory works with the iPod Touch (LTE), iPad, iPad 2, iPad (3G). It is also compliant with the newest iOS devices through adapters that connect the accessory, including the iPhone 5, iPod Touch (5G), iPad (LTE), and iPad Mini. The EyeTV Mobile accessory is priced at USD 99.95 and is available from Elgato at elgato.com, Amazon and other retail locations. The EyeTV Mobile application, compliant with the Dyle service, is available at no charge in the App Store. Dyle mobile TV services are available immediately without a subscription fee, which is subject to change at any time.
