With the EyeTV app, you can watch, record, and enjoy live and recorded TV on your iPhone or iPod touch. At last, you don‘t have to leave all your great TV shows at home; the EyeTV app puts the power of award-winning EyeTV in the palm of your hand.

The EyeTV app accesses EyeTV running on your Mac at home to deliver these great features to your iPhone:

  • Watch your EyeTV recordings
  • Browse the comprehensive Program Guide
  • Start recordings back home on your Mac immediately or schedule them for later
  • View and edit your recording schedules

The EyeTV running on your Mac converts live TV to the correct format for streaming to the iPhone, ensuring optimal picture quality. With the EyeTV app, EyeTV users can watch live TV and recordings on an iPhone and browse the detailed program guide. They can also use the iPhone to start recording TV shows back home on a Mac immediately, or to schedule them to record later. The EyeTV app connects to any Mac running the latest version of Elgato’s award-winning TV software, EyeTV 3.2, and can automatically find a Mac on the local network using Bonjour. The EyeTV app can also find and access a remote Mac via “My EyeTV”, a free locator utility introduced today as part of EyeTV 3.2.

EyeTV is available from the iTunes Store at a price of $4.99
