Streaming video to your iDevices and Mac over wifi may be ok for television watching in bed while the wife is snoring, but who knew the idea could be popular? Hauppage's WinTV is going to bring streaming of live TV to your Apple devices.

For $9.95 directly through Hauppage, you can get their WinTV v7.2 application complete with WinTV Extend. Doesn't seem necessary to watch old-fashioned TV when there are on demand services, but to each his own. Plus, Hauppauge stock rose as much as 60 percent the day after the announcement, according to Reuters, maybe it's just not our cup of tea.
