EyeTV for iPhone: Live-Streaming now over Wi-Fi and 3G connections

Munich/San Francisco, April 5, 2010 - The latest version 1.0.2 of Elgato's EyeTV App enables streaming of live TV signals over Wi-Fi as well as 3G connections. Using the EyeTV app to watch TV on the road no longer requires a Wi-Fi connection. EyeTV for iPhone 1.0.2 is available from the App Store as a free update for existing customers. 

Rich feature set, easy setup
Users who run EyeTV 3.3.3 and have a compatible TV tuner can enjoy live TV, watch EyeTV recordings, browse the comprehensive Program Guide and to start recordings on their Macs or schedule them for later. Setting up EyeTV for iPhone is easy: On a local Wi-Fi network no configuration is needed. A remote Mac can be accessed via "My EyeTV", Elgato's free locator utility.

Requirements
EyeTV for iPhone requires a Mac computer running EyeTV 3.3.3. Streaming TV requires an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. For sending the live signal over a 3G connection, Elgato recommends the Turbo.264 HD which enables "adaptive streaming" for the best picture possible under varying network speeds.
