How does it work?
This app requires EyeTV W, a small hardware accessory, to tune into free over-the-air Freeview (DTT/DVB-T). Watching TV with EyeTV W doesn’t require any wires: the built-in, rechargeable battery powers your TV freedom for up to four hours, while live TV is sent straight to your device wirelessly through a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. You don’t need an internet connection to watch TV with EyeTV W, so you will never have to wait for any data to load and don’t have to pay monthly service or data bills.

Could be better

Does what it is supposed to do, having a feature to schedule recording or setting notification based on tv guide would be helpful.

Great little device

I bought my eyetv w device from the apple store several years ago but after a few uses it stopped connecting via the wifi link to my phone. I sent it back to apple who replaced the unit , and this second unit has worked faultlessly with several different I phones and versions of ios over past few years. Great app and a great little device.

This used to be great but it seems to have got worse over time and now, here in Croatia, I can’t get a single channel. I’ll update this as I travel back through Europe after Xmas but really disappointed.
