We all love to watch TV, whether it is sports, reality TV or high drama and now watching TV on an android device is possible.
Watching TV on an ipad or iphone has been available for a while and now support for Android devices is also available.
The iDTV S for Android devices works much the same as for the ipad and iphone version but with the micro USB port connector, and like the iOS version there is no streaming of TV over a mobile network, no internet connection, no wifi connection required and most importantly no data usage on your mobile plan.
Unlike other mobile TV products, this has a very simple set up. Download the free Android APP which supports the iDTV S and provides an easy to use interface for watching, scrolling thru channels and recording your favourite shows all whilst on the go. Once connected users can tune into Standard definition Australian TV channels which is done automatically when the app is first launched.
Of course like any Free to Air TV, users must be in a good DVB-T reception area. We tested a number of Android Handsets, Samsung S3 and S4 and Note 2 and received great coverage outdoors. The iDTV S also works on HTC One X , Plus and the Sony Xperia viewing was outstanding. Some of the Android tablets as are great to use the Idtv S with, of course check the specs to see if your device is compatible.
A couple of key features you must have on your Andriod device to ensure viewing include support for dual-core CPU and Neon support in the device , Android 4.0.3 (“Ice Cream Sandwich”) or later and the android device must also support USB OTB. Of course you will need DTT / Freeview / DVB-T coverage

Have you noticed the explosion in the Tablet market? If you think I’m talking pharmaceuticals, then you’ll be disappointed. Every month there seems to be the launch of a new tablet. Everyone is getting in on the action and with some of the low price points; the Apple iPad is facing tough competition.
There’s the popular, Blackberry Playbook, Samsung Galaxy Tabs and the iPad to the latest and cheapest to hit the market, the Amazon Kindle Fire at just $200. Even Sony, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Acer, Toshiba, Asus, Motorola and HP have launched their own versions (just to name the brands – there are more!). HP quickly halted production, but only after selling massive volumes at a reduced price. It will be interesting to see if this has the iMate effect (when Vegemite launched a product that failed – and everyone bought them to hold onto and sell later).
Either way…..do you have a tablet? What do you use it for?
We have the perfect accessory to accompany your tablet, so it never runs out of battery in the middle of watching a movie, in a client meeting or on that last level of Angry Birds!
