If streaming video options in Australia haven’t quite been able to deliver what you want, D-Link has today announced the availability of their micro-USB based TV Tuner, complete with Android app.
Available for $49.95 from the D-Link online store plus $15 delivery, the DWM-T100 provides live Digital TV (DVB-T) on your Android device essentially anywhere you go, TV Signal permitting. The dongle comes with a loop antenna allowing you to move around and ‘get great reception on the go’, but for superior signal reception, where available, you can use the F-Type antenna convertor to hook up to your homes existing antenna.
The provided app – D-Link TV Tuner – which is available free in Google Play, provides drivers for the device, as well as a host of features. The app allows you access to a full Electronic Program Guide, Time-Shift recording with the ability to pause and rewind live TV and record on a schedule or on-demand and Automatic TV Channel search.
There is a minimum requirement for the TV-Tuner, with D-Link advising that a 1GHz Dual-Core processor with Android 4.0.3 or greater required to run it.
