Who knew that a Monday could be such a mad storehouse of riches? First the iOS software update and now this: Elgato has updated their EyeTV software to stream live TV to your iPad over 3G or WiFi. At this rate, we'll have to declare a new day of the week to be the worst out of seven. Wednesday, we're looking at you.
If you're already an EyeTV hardware owner running EyeTV 3.4 on your Mac, you'll need to download Elgato's EyeTV App ($4.99 to purchase new, or a free upgrade to exisiting EyeTV App owners) to get the WiFi streaming party started. If your TV consumption plans involve a 3G connection, Elgato recommends that you consider picking up an Elgato Turbo.264 HD, which utilizes adaptive streaming to provide decent reception under changing network conditions. Just be sure that your system is up to specifications before running out and buying something that may not work well for you--you don't want to ruin that awesome Monday buzz.
