You might have remembered the controversy when some users worked out a way to stream their television over 3G.

(read our full review here). 

The latest version 1.0.2 of Elgato’s EyeTV app enables streaming of live TV signals over Wi-Fi as well as 3G connections. Using the EyeTV app to watch TV on the road no longer requires a Wi-Fi connection. EyeTV for iPhone 1.0.2 is available from the App Store as a free update for existing customers.

Rich feature set, easy setup

Users who run EyeTV 3.3.3 and have a compatible TV tuner can enjoy live TV, watch EyeTV recordings, browse the comprehensive Program Guide and to start recordings on their Macs or schedule them for later. Setting up EyeTV for iPhone is easy: On a local Wi-Fi network no configuration is needed. For 3G or Wi-Fi connections to a remote Mac, Elgato offers the free “My Eye TV” locator utility.

For sending the live signal over a 3G connection, Elgato recommends the Turbo.264 HD which enables “adaptive streaming” for the best picture possible under varying network speeds.
