Watching antenna TV on iOS and Android personal and mobile devices
This article is a summarized extract from The Budgeteers' Guide to 21st Century TV.
With a networked tuner you can watch TV from your antenna in an app on your phone, tablet or Smart TV. The networked tuner turns broadcast-to-air TV into streaming media that can be viewed by devices and TVs in the network.
Networked tuners free the TV antenna from direct connection to the TV. With these tuners, broadcast-to-air TV is no longer restricted to the TV, but can be accessed from many devices in the network. Multiple devices in the home including Smart TVs, tablets, phones and DVRs can watch or record broadcast TV from a single antenna. A networked DVR, has the same effect.
