EyeTV NetStream Streams Free-to-Air Digital TV to Any Devices at Home

A few months ago, I wrote about TBS AMD Moi Pro streaming server supporting up to 16 tuners  and mostly targeting businesses, but I’ve also found out there are some consumers solutions such as Elgato EyeTV NetStream 4Sat that includes four antenna inputs for your satellite dish (DVB-S2/S), and the ability to stream live TV to any devices, using hardware video transcoding if need be, for example to Android or iOS smartphones. Versions with DVB-T2 and ATSC will soon be available.

The networked tuner ships with an Ethernet cable, a power supply, and a Quick Start Guide.

All you need is a satellite dish with digital universal LNB or DiSEqC multiswitch to connect to the 4 RF inputs, and a Gigabit router to stream videos from the DVB streamer to your devices and computers with up to 4 simultaneous users watching different channels. Operating systems supported include Android, iOS, and Windows 7 or greater and Mac OS via EyeTV software. It is also said to work with SAT>IP certified receivers.

NetStream 4Sat has been available in Europe since 2014, and is listed on Amazon UK for £142.00 ($204.50 US) with mixed reviews ranging from “not smooth” or “Simply does not work. At all.” to “Glorious quality satellite TV anywhere in the house”, the same is true for EyeTV Netstream app. I could not find actual reviews of the device however.

Geniatech is apparently behind the product, and Charbax interviewed the company has now developed DVB-T2 and ATSC versions, with Geniatech models going under the name NetTV Quad.

More details about the DVB-S2 version can be found on EyeTV Netstream 4Sat product page.

  1. Are there any alternative with good DVB-T2 and DVB-C2 support? Embarrassing but I didn’t know devices like this exist before this post.

  2. In EU another alternative would be PCTV Broadway HD 292 (DVB-C/T/T2). Record,Stream over internet,DLNA, Transcoding profiles up to 15MB or transport stream .TS)
