At the National Broadcast Association Conference, a large annual event for broadcasters and those in the TV industry, Geniatech North America introduced EyeTV, a product that they recently acquired. Like HDHomeRun and similar products, this will allow you to watch TV on your mobile devices, although this product does it directly on your device, allowing you to record and watch live TV.
The EyeTV itself is a small hardware module that connects to your device’s charging port (Lightning on iOS, USB on Android) and contains little more than an antennae. The mobile apps take in that signal and play it. They produce other hardware that let you view streams on other devices like your laptop or just wirelessly on your network.
Geniatech North America bought the technology for this product and at the conference discussed how they plan to expand it to more platforms, including smart TVs.
While we introduce the award winning EyeTV4 software with new look featuring a more modern user experience, we are, at the same time preparing to expand into more device support such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Smart TVs and Chromecast, this will offer new and existing customers more choices for their TV viewing experience by using our EyeTV product line

The company is now going to modernize the product, improving its user interface and the hardware to allow more channels to be watched. Demoing this product to broadcasters seems to be a good way to meet partners and potentially convince more networks to make streaming easier for consumers.
