Stream Mobile TV To Iphone / Ipod Touch Via Wifi

Packet Video's latest Mobile Broadcast Receiver, which looks like a small white box, is able to stream mobile TV to devices with no mobile TV reception capability, such as the iPhone and iPod Touch. It works by receiving DVB-H, MediaFLO or WiMax (depending on the standard for your particular market—Verizon uses MediaFLO) and transcoding it on the fly to a video stream sent out via Wi-Fi. Your device (the one you're actually watching the video on) then grabs the video stream over Wi-Fi and displays it. It'll be available later in the year, but Packet Video usually works with service providers and not directly with the consumer, so your only option may be to buy a branded one.
