Sometimes technology astounds us and Elgato is about to do just that with the launch of the EyeTV DTT Deluxe.
The Eye TV is a USB device that is around half the size of a mobile broadband dongle but offers a completely different service all altogether.
In fact, users of the iPhone may be familiar with the EyeTV app that provides Freeview on the iPhone, whereas the EyeTV DDT Deluxe provides Freeview TV services on a computer.
All the user has to do is place the EyeTV into the USB port of a Mac or PC and without interfering with other applications the device will provide a good clear TV reception.
The device is on sale right now from Elgato.com and Apple Stores for £79.95.
