Elgato EyeTV W: Freeview+ via WiFi for iOS and Android

Elgato has announced the EyeTV W, a WiFi-enabled mobile TV device for iOS and Android. 

The portable TV tuner comes with an aerial and a Freeview tuner meaning you can watch BBC1, ITV2 and Channel 4 live on the go. Whereas previous models of Elgato’s mobile TV devices had to be plugged in, the EyeTV W’s WiFi antenna (802.11 b/g) means you can stream programmes straight to your phone or tablet. 

With the Elgato apps for iOS and Android you’ll be able to pause, rewind and record live TV on the go as well.

EyeTV Player: Elgato’s mobile TV device brings Freeview to your phone

The EyeTV has an effective range of 10 metres and the battery gives you up to four hours of viewing, so it’s ideal for kicking back in the office break out room, at home or wherever you’d want to watch live TV on your phone or tablet. 

While you can watch much of what’s available on Freeview on iPlayer, ITV Player and the like, the beauty of Elgato’s live TV products is that they won’t eat in to your data connection.
