Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I 'cut the cord' quite a while ago and have been running Internet + over-the-air for quite some time and actually had been looking at this before it was available on Vine. I was pretty excited to get it as sometimes I work late at the office but want to catch a show (I'm too lazy to DVR it).

Set-up was a breeze, download the app and plug it into the 30-pin connector. I tried this on an iPhone 4 and latest iPad. You have to enter a zip code and email address which I'm generally not fond of. Why do I have to register my email address to use their product, it should be optional. The zip code requirement made me wonder if I would be able to use this if I go to another market.

I entered the information and took me to a screen on what was available...2 and one of them was PBS. With the HD antennae, I get about 25. Ok, clicked on NBC and it took me to another blank screen. Sat there...sat there...sat there...blank screen...blank screen. I checked the coverage map before and I should of been fine. No indication it's doing anything or that I should wait...juts a blank screen. No whirly hour-glass, not "connecting...". Finally after 3-4 mins (studies show after 10 seconds people get bored waiting for tech), a picture showed. Was pretty fuzzy, waited for it to clear up like buffering on streaming videos. Nope, was kind of like 320x200 blown up to iPad size so it was pixelated.

The sound stopped about every 10-15 seconds on cue. Checking my connection with their tool, it was on the lower side of green, say 7 out of 10. Compared it to the Live NBC channel and they delay it about 10 seconds.

I stopped it, reloaded it. This time it came up much faster but still slow. Like 45 seconds which in this short attention span world is akin to infinity+infinity.

So far, I like this product a lot. I downloaded the app, plugged in the receiver, pulled up the antenna and was watching TV on my iPhone within 5 minutes. Easy. Nice to have in case of a power outage or bad weather emergencies. CHECK TO SEE IF YOU'RE IN THE COVERAGE AREA BEFORE PURCHASING.

Very disappointed with this device. Telescopic antenna is flimsy and opens from small to large cylinder (top end thicker than bottom end). Unplugs too easily from 30-pin connector. Poor hardware design. iPhone app works ok in recognizing unit, but scanning did not find as many DTV channels in the area (as I could get with an attic yagi), and the app froze from buffering many times when looking at any of the channels. Boxed and returned it the same day. My curiosity was satisfied. These types of devices are only useful if you literally live within line of sight and/or a few miles of the TV transmitter. You may then get all the channels available in your list. Then you have to contend with buffering issues in the h/w and app s/w making screen viewing a constant eye hiccup experience.

Bought this as a Fathers Day gift for my Non-Tech dad. Only tech device he has is an iPad. Doesn't use a computer at all.
He installed it easily (without a call to me) and uses it just fine. Perfect for watching NASCAR outside at while working in the shed and for tracking Hurricane issues when the storm has knocked out Directv

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Belkin Dyle Wireless Mobile TV Receiver for 30-Pin iPhone and iPad in Select Coverage Areas Is only useful for a very limited number of areas and a very limited number of people. This is one of those product descriptions where you really have to read the fine print carefully.

This unit is NOT an external antenna with a standard television receiver that interfaces with your 30-pin apple mobile devises. If you live anywhere outside the very limited coverage area of the proprietary broadcast service from Dyle this device is of no use whatsoever. Go over the coverage area very carefully before ordering and make sure the signal is available in your area.

Keep in mind that even if the service is available in your area you might not get all the stations broadcasting there. Only stations partnered with Dyle will show up as available.

Also keep in mind this is the old IOS 30-pin connector. Newer Apple devices Will Not Work with this device. According to Belkin, the lightening adapter will not work.

Setup and use is fairly easy, just download the app and tell it where you live and it will tell you what (if any) stations are available.

A great idea that needs a whole lot of work before being practical.

the device does not work well. Even with a full signal the video skips/pauses every second or two making it impossible to watch anything for any duration.

This is not worth your money!!! BEWARE
It indicates it gets three stations in Kansas City. It barley gets one. I have tried to use it in several different locations inside and outdoors. The one station at times can be seen clearly. Once I had it 30 miles away and it got the one station. But don't waste your money.

I bought this item because it showed on the reception map that my area would have TV reception. It did, but very poor - the image kept freezing, pixelating, and made it frustrating and impossible to watch anything at all. Perhaps this would work better in other areas, but not mine.
