Orb for iPhone

Live TV via iPhone

AT&T launched its “live” mobile TV solution this May. Engadget has nifty demo of the functionality. It looks pretty sweet, but for the most part, it’s not live. Many of the broadcasts are time-shifted. Take a peek at Engadget’s assessment of the service here. Besides, it’s only available on a few phones like the new LG Vu. however there’s been speculation all over the Internets that AT&T TV service will be available to iPhone 2.0 junkies and possibly current iPhone users via an upgrade.

What’s a iPhone user to do right now. Well one option is live TV streaming via Orb. Having tried out Orb with my Xbox 360 I’ll co-sign on its merits. Now with your jailbroken iPhone you can stream from your home setup to your iPhone. Provided, you’ll need a TV tuner card and Orb’s Installer app. For complete instructions on how, head over here.
