Do you want to watch live TV on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad? It’s now possible thanks to Hauppauge and their WinTV-HVR TV tuner boards.

According to the company’s press release:

Live TV for these Apple devices is provided by Hauppauge‘s “WinTV Extend”, which will be a feature in Hauppauge‘s new WinTV v7.2 application.  WinTV Extend transmits live TV to Internet and WiFi connected devices such as the Apple iPad, iPhone and others. The WinTV v7.2 application provides live TV and TV recording to PCs equipped with a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR TV tuner.

Soon available for $9.95, the new WinTV Extend feature will take the live TV signal and transmit it over the Internet where it can be received by any web browser via Safari. More details will be available on Hauppauge’s website soon.

I’m not enough of a TV fanatic to make use of this but you might… What do you think?

      I have a data plan on my iPhone which is limited. How much data will WinTV Extend use? – well I read the answer to this on their hauppauge web site and it said 450mb for 10 hrs (45mb per hr) so I used it for a total of just 6 hrs knowing that should be under my plan allowance (400mb) – but I just got a bill for $ 620.00 from my 3G provider it uses 275mb per hr – not 45mb (275 @ $0.50c per mb ( charged when I go over my plan ) =$137.00 per hr- so not good to use on 3G network unless you have a massive plan I am now having to pay off my bill and have not heard back from  hauppauge about the answer on their web site – I can only hope that others will see this post before trying it like I did – I now only use it over wifi – I learnt the hard way and wont use it over 3G again ( which by the way was the main reason I wanted it )
