Watch Live TV On Your iPhone or iPad With WinTV Extend


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?
