Elgato Working To Bring Live TV to the iPhone

Elgato is preparing to bring Live TV to the iPhone according to an Electric Pig report.

Lars Felber, Elgato's Product Marketing Manager, told Electric Pig that live TV on the iPhone is high on their agenda.

"We're asked a lot about that," he said. "We could make a Freeview adapter for iPhone. One that draws power from the battery and has an aerial. But the phone would need to convert the MPEG stream. That's a lot of work, so it's far better to stream it."

Elgato's solution would work in a similar way to Sling Media's Slingbox, but instead of needing a new set-top box, you'd simply plug one of the company's USB TV tuners into your Mac at home, and let it re-compress the signal for iPhone, before streaming it over the web.
