With a name like Honestech, how can you not trust their products? Especially when they're nice enough to provide something called MY-IPTV Anywhere Mobile, allowing you to watch your home television on just about any portable device. Working in much the same way as Slingbox, MY-IPTV takes the television programming from your home and sends it out onto the interweb for you to retrieve. No matter where you are on the globe, you can catch up on the local news, watching it on your internet-capable mobile phone, Windows-based WiFi PDA, or broadband-connected computer.
While My-IPTV Anywhere Mobile is a software package, the bundle includes an external USB 2.0 TV tuner device called MY-IPBOX: You'll need to use your home computer as an intermediary, as the MY-IPTV service won't work on its lonesome. There is also support for the latest H.264/MPEG-4 video compression technology standard for mobile phones.
