With this 30-pin accessory, you can watch live TV broadcasts on your iOS device. You don’t need WiFi access, and you won’t use your data plan minutes, either. You do need to be in certain geographic areas in the US to use the Dyle mobile TV unit from Belkin, though. Dyle mobile TV broadcasts live local programming from major TV networks and uses the ATSC-M/H standard. To find out if you are in a coverage area, check Belkin’s coverage map. (Belkin says they will be adding new areas.) Dyle has a extendable titanium antenna for the best possible signal reception, and it has a microUSB port that can be used with an optional cable and charger that can recharge your iPhone (4/4S) or iPad (original, 2, or 3rd gen) as you watch TV. The Dyle is available now at Belkin for $129.99.
