EyeTV 3 users can now stream live television over a 3G connection to
an iPhone. With Elgato’s new EyeTV Live3G web app, you can watch live
TV and EyeTV recordings anywhere.
The web app connects your iPhone to your Mac at home. It uses HTTP
Live Streaming technology to deliver video streams without
sacrificing battery life, according to the folks at Elgato. The
Live3G web app is available immediately at live3g.eyetv.com, and is
part of EyeTV 3.3, a free update for EyeTV 3 users.
The web app complements Elgato’s recently introduced EyeTV app for
the iPhone, which delivers live TV to an iPhone over a Wi-Fi
connection. The EyeTV Live3G web app uses HTTP Live Streaming
technology introduced with iPhone OS 3.0, which relies upon H.264
video and AAC audio to deliver the highest possible playback quality.
Live3G takes advantage of the iPhone’s hardware acceleration to
deliver higher performance and longer battery life, says Elgato.
The EyeTV Live3G web app uses Elgato’s free “My EyeTV” locator
service to connect your iPhone to your Mac running EyeTV 3.3
software. Live3G requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone OS
3.1, a Mac with an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU and an EyeTV tuner.
The Live3G web app is free and is available at
http://live3g.eyetv.com. EyeTV 3.3 is a free software update for
EyeTV 3 users. Elgato EyeTV tuners can be purchased at the Elgato
Online Store (http://www.elgato.com), at Apple retail stores and the
Apple Store online, from local Apple resellers and other fine
