The EyeTV line is a pretty nice family of TV tuners for your Mac that allow watching, pausing/rewinding, and recording of regular TV channels. Instead of streaming over the internet, the Elgato-made products do so through an aerial connection, either on your rooftop or supplied with your device.
Few can doubt that we’ve increasingly started to watch video on devices such as personal computers, tablets and even phones in recent years, moving away from the traditional experience with a TV set. EyeTV helps to bridge the gap between these two markets, by allowing your Mac to be your TV.
Although the product is mainly Mac-focused, a complimentary (not in the sense of price, however) iOS app is also available at an additional charge, that allows you to access your tuner’s power from anywhere with an internet connection. In today’s article, we’ll show you how to get going.
