    The Tivizen, over-the-air TV antenna, coming to iPad

    Not the most attractive of accessories imo. I'd like this more if it were redesigned as a right angle kickstand, with the antenna as the stand. Still though, it's intriguing.

    > Edit: for something similar that doesn't stick out the side of your iPad, go 3 posts below.

    A 7" LCD TV costs only $40 or so so the price is way out of line

    A bit pricey, and it should be powered by the iPad.....since it says only a few hours of battery life....but damn thats cool!!

    Stream live TV to your iPad

    Here's something interesting along the same lines:

    Hauppauge debuts Broadway live TV streamer for iPhones and iPads, WinTV-Aero-m receiver for PCs -- Engadget

    I'm definitely interested in this!

    definitely interested since i don't have cable lol.

    so, it seems you don't need cable and it's a one time purchase for tv?

    wonder how many channels and etc it will have.

    The number of channels you can receive depends on how many DTV stations there are in your area.

    wait, not sure how these work...

    so i read the Broadway live tv, hooks up to your cable, then transfers over digital wireless to your iPad.

    so you need to have your own cable, that's what channels your iPad will receive.

    how does the first one work?

    The first one works like an aerial antenna. In other words, it picks up your local channels.


    The second one does the same, but can also stream your cable/satellite:
