Just asking, has anyone tried a live TV program or app for a tablet.
The tv in the bedroom died :-/

Thanks in advance.

Not live, I've only messed around with stuff like ABC's iView. Can't see why they wouldn't work though, if such an app exists.

Might have to go to the TV station website to stream through Flash player.

I've tried Elgato Tivizen on iPad and it's quite a nifty little device. Its basically a portable receiver that emits programming wirelessly to any device within range. Theres a free app download for ipad, so theres sure to be one for your device as well. Not sure if that's what you're after though..... you'll need to purchase the receiver, which is around the $150 mark (I believe).

I don't own one, so I can't say what it's track record is like, but for the time I was connected to it ... worked really well.

If the tablet supports Flash, most Aussie TV stations do have their shows online in some form. Of course, iPads don't support Flash.

Relevance = 0. He's not using an iPad and I prefer to watch TV on my 55" 3D baby over a 10" tablet.

Samsung Galaxy 10.1
Android 3.2

I am sure there would be something, like an app or a site. To watch live tv.

Man I'd say you're outta luck if you're just after an application. AFAIK no FTA channels livestream their broadcasts; and there's no TV tuner for that tablet either.

An alternative approach: a quick search turns up heaps of remote desktop apps for Android - find one that works well for audio and video. Then just get a TV tuner for your PC! :--] Do your research, <$60 solution.

We just got a release for the Hauppage Broadway that will stream from an Aerial over Wifi to an iPad using the app, and to any android device using Flash.
