Today at the Gadget Show Live Hauppauge launched a new TV tuner designed to stream TV to an iPad or iPhone. The Broadway 2T tuner is a standalone box that you connect to your network (wired or wifi) and has dual Freeview tuners built in to it that will enable streaming of the TV signal to an iOS device either over your home network or the internet. As well as the TV tuner it also has USB and video inputs so you could stream video from a USB devices, webcam or a set top box. On the iPad you use the web based UI where you can watch live TV and browse the built in EPG.
I think for iPad or iPhone users the box could be really interesting, Garry and I met up with Hauppauge today and recorded some video today so look out for that over the next couple of days. While this will not work with Windows Media Center you can use it on a PC via their software and there is the possibility of an Android version soon
The normal price is £181.94 with special offers at the show
