Watching TV On iPad : Although it’s no substitute for your widescreen television, when you’re away from your couch, the iPad makes for a surprisingly good TV. Due to its size, it’s much better than an iPhone or iPod touch and its built-in speaker is good enough to allow the device to be shared, but what can you watch on it? Well, anything you’ve bought or rented from the Tunes Store will work on your iPad: you can transfer movies, TV shows, podcasts and music videos and they’ll all play flawlessly on your portable device.

You could also convert your existing DVD collection into Tunes-compatible files but in order to achieve this, you’d need programs like HandBrake which are designed to transform your films and episodes into compatible files ready for you to enjoy on your iPad. This can be a time-consuming process, so if you’d rather not have to deal with any of this and you happen to own an Elgato Netstream device which is connected to your network, you can purchase the EyeTV application and watch live TV straight from your iPad, anywhere in your house, as long as you’re within range of your wireless signal.
