iPhone and iPod Touch owners will soon be capable of watching their home TV from the comfort of their own hands. Elgato’s EyeTV app will be released in the near future. If you own either an iPhone or an iPod Touch, in addition to a MAC computer at your home, then this new app may be just what you’re looking for. According to ars technica:
It appears as if the app works in a similar way to Slingbox Mobile, where the iPhone app streams recorded TV from your home computer (hooked up to an EyeTV box) over WiFi. From the iPhone, you can start recordings on your Mac at home or schedule them for later, and even edit your recording schedule.
If you already have a MAC, in addition to an iPhone or iPod Touch, and an EyeTV box, then the $4.99 app cost hardly seems unreasonable. For the piddling cost of 5 more bucks, you can finally watch what you want, when you want, where you want. Sounds like a deal to me.
