If you’ve ever wanted to watch live digital TV on your tablet or smartphone, there’s now a solution. Geniatech WiTV is a tiny battery powered DVB receiver also acting as Wi-Fi access point in order to stream live TV to your mobile devices. You can use this device within your house or on the go, but it has to be within 5 to 7 meters from your tablet or smartphone to work properly.

  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Standard Support
  • Micro USB for recharging
  • Up to 3 hours of TV viewing (TBC)

iOS devices must run IOS 5.0 or IOS5.1, and Android 3.0 or greater is supported. You’ll need to install SianoTV for Android or iOS, scan the channel, and you’re ready to watch free to air digital TV. The application can also record the TV program in your device, in order to watch it later. Since the device is only compatible will DVB-T and ISDBT, this will work in most countries where digital TV has been rolled out, except North America and China.
