Broadcast and pay TV technology provider, Motive Television, developed the tuner, which will work in conjunction with a TabletTV app, letting viewers watch over-the-air Freeview channels, record programmes and access red-button services without needing to be connected to the web.
Two versions of the tuner – mains powered and portable – will retail for £64.99 and £69.99 respectively, with Amazon to handle the distribution.
“The launch of TabletTV UK is an important milestone for Motive and for lovers of live television viewing,” said Motive CEO, Leonard Fertig.
“Personal live TV-viewing on tablets is a dramatic change in viewing habits and marks a continual sea change in the television industry. Motive is pleased to be an industry leader in making it possible for viewers to watch what they want, when they want and where they want.”
