TubeStick hybrid unveiled

Equinux today announced its entry into the TV receiver market for Mac OS X in the U.S. with its TubeStick hybrid, a USB-based TV receiver that allows users to watch as well as pause and record live TV on a Mac in HD quality. Accompanying software allows users to chat with one another during each TV show, while 'TubeToGo' Web services support scheduling as well as managing and publishing TV recordings via an iPhone or iPod touch on-the-go. TubeStick hybrid will ship in February for $130.

"We're really excited to introduce TubeStick hybrid today. Nearly ten months after we started to reinvent digital television on the Mac with our The Tube software, we're more than happy to provide our solution to US customers as well," said Equinux CEO Till Schadde. "With TubeToGo we introduced another thrilling add-on, that brings your TV recordings directly to your iPhone or iPod touch."



TubeStick hybrid features two built-in receivers, enabling users to watch free-to-air digital HDTV (ATSC) as well as digital (QAM) and analog (NTSC) cable television. What's more, reception is obtainable with HD quality in areas with ATSC via the antenna. The TubeStick hybrid has a white, minimalist design and is one of the smallest devices in its class, according to Equinux.

The device comes with a white compact antenna and a break-out cable, allowing users to connect to camcorders, analog video recorders, and game consoles using S-Video or Composite cables. TubeStick hybrid is also designed to fit perfectly in the USB port of MacBooks and MacBook Pros without blocking other necessary plugs.
