Archos TV Snap-on module

Archos has outed the TV Snap-on accessory for its Archos 5 Internet media tablet on its French website. The accessory allows the device to pick up free-roaming TV signals and display them on the device's 5-inch screen. The dual receiver antennas are matched by two tuners and two processors for the RF signals.

When hooked up to a digital terrestrial tuner, users can also watch TV indoors, where signal reception is weak, by taking advantage of external antennas mounted on building tops. Users can also record the shows via the Archos' interface.

The Archos TV Snap-on is priced at nearly 80 euros (about $102) in France. There is no word when or if it will be available in North America. [via PMP Today]
