LAS VEGAS, April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Hauppauge Digital, Inc. /quotes/zigman/57852/quotes/nls/haup HAUP +49.27% , the world's leading developer of TV tuner products, has announced that Broadway, Hauppauge's live TV streamer for the iPad and iPhone, now has TV recording support. With this new feature, Broadway can record TV programs locally and then stream it to an iPad or iPhone at a later time. "Broadway" is a stand alone "box" which allows live TV to be watched on an Apple device in the home through a Wi-Fi connection, or anywhere in the world via an Internet connection.

Broadway has a built-in over the air digital TV tuner (ATSC), plus supports clear QAM digital cable TV and connections to cable or satellite set top boxes. Once connected to a TV source, Broadway can tune to a TV program and then either stream the live TV program to an iPad or iPhone, or, with the new feature, record the TV program to a locally attached storage device and then stream the recording at a later time.
The new record feature will be a free software upgrade to Broadway users. Broadway has a suggested retail price of $199 and is available from Amazon and other e-tail and retailers in North America.

So, here we have it, broadcast and broadband working together. Aereo is going to use the existence of these devices in their defence. Basically, if you can record broadcast content and stream it over the internet, why can't you hire someone to do it for you? That is, if technically your using your own antenna.

This, along with Boxee's live TV dongle, may give these devices an edge in the streaming STB market. And it may encourage other manufacturers to get onboard with OTA TV - it's not really that expensive to provide live OTA TV tuners to things like the WD TV Live and provide OTA DVR capability.
