Motorola has rolled out a new device that allows users to stream live TV to iPad (and other tablets that support IP service). This device works by plugging into cable and utilizing the Wi-Fi router to stream the video, audio content to iPad. Of course, you iPad has to remain connected in order to receive the content.
So how does it work? iPad can handle only MP4 format. Televation converts the incoming MP2 stream to iPad compatible MP4 stream and converts the resolution, bitrate iPad friendly too.
Do not get your hopes up though as it would not be made available to the consumers directly and will rely on the cable operators themselves to install it in your homes.
