Elgato Tivizen creates it's own wireless network to watch TV
Watch live TV on your iPad, MAC or PC with the Elgato Tivizen Mobile TV Tuner. Designed for viewing on the move, this glossy little obelisk will fit neatly in your bag or jacket pocket.
When you want to use it, just slide out the flexible aerial. The Tivizen picks up DVB-T (also known as DTT, or Freeview) signals. It then transmits the signals flawlessly to your iPad or computer using its own local WiFi network. No internet access is required – the digital channels are free to watch!
Use the downloadable App to keep track of what's on and record your favourite shows
Recharge the battery via USB
But this is more than just a glorified aerial. Launch the Tivizen App and see what’s on (and what’s coming up next). All the data from the DVB-T signal will be available to you. Pick a channel and pause or timeshift backwards while you’re viewing it – perfect if you missed something interesting! You can even record shows to watch later. The Tivizen lets you adapt live television to suit your schedule. So now you’ll have no excuse for missing Loose Women.
