You’ve probably seen, as I have, countless statements saying you can’t watch television in a moving vehicle. COBY begs to differ! Their DTV111 TV-to-Go USB receiver is a Mobile DTV receiver. MDTV is a “new TV broadcast standard optimized for portable recption. With an MDTV receiver from Coby, consumers can watch live TV programs such as news, traffic info, weather, sports, and entertainment. Regular DTV broadcasts are designed for stationary reception, and cannot support mobile reception. MDTV allows for clear, consistent, high-quality TV reception at speeds of 100+ mph, enabling consumers to watch TV in their cars, on the train, or at a park” with no programming fees. The COBY DTV111 cannot receive traditional DTV signals nor analog signals; it works only with signals from stations broadcasting with Mobile DTV. It works with Windows computers running Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit), Vista, and XP. It even includes DVR recording abilities and its own extendable antenna. The COBY DTV111 is available at Amazon for about $75.
