The $367 Hauppauge PCTV Broadway 2T will stream TV to any iOS device, Mac or PC with no third party app required. And Android support is expected to be added within a few weeks.

It connects to your wired or wifi network and contains dual DVB-T tuners to enable streaming of a TV signal to a host device either over a home network or the internet.

The 2T also features USB and video inputs so you can stream video from your USB device or set top box. You can even connect it to an analog camera to create a remote home surveillance system viewable on an iPad or iPhone. This is one handy device that should be well worth the money.
