Looking to enjoy your EyeTV live broadcasts and recordings on your iPhone, without having to be connected to a Wi-Fi network? Then, my friend, you’re in luck. Elgato’s EyeTV 3.3 software update released Wednesday brings with it the ability to stream EyeTV content from your Mac to your iPhone using a 3G data connection.
Streaming requires the Live3G Web app that you access via the iPhone’s Safari browser. It streams video using Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming technology. (With EyeTV 3.2, Elgato released an iPhone app that allowed similar streaming, but only over a Wi-Fi connection. The iPhone app offers additional features that the Web app doesn’t.) The free Live3G Web app requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone OS 3.1, and an Intel Core Duo Mac or better.
EyeTV is a popular TV tuning application that works in conjuction with hardware such as the EyeTV Hybrid to let your Mac work as a DVR—you can watch and pause live television, record programs on a hard drive, edit content, and export recordings to iTunes.
The EyeTV 3.3 update is free for current users of EyeTV 3.
