Elgato today announced a Lightning version of EyeTV Mobile, its highly acclaimed TV Tuner for iPad and iPhone. While using the same compact enclosure as the original EyeTV Mobile, the new model will connect directly to Apple devices featuring the ultra-slim, durable Lightning connector.

EyeTV Mobile connects directly to iPad with Retina display, iPad mini, and iPhone 5. It receives digital TV via its supplied miniature telescopic antenna. EyeTV Mobile doesn’t need an internet connection so users can watch, pause and rewind live TV without touching their data plans. The hardware ships with different aerial options to deliver the best possible reception both on the move and at home. The EyeTV Mobile app is free and is available on the App Store.
