    Default Apple Yanks EyeTV App

    Image via blogcdn.com

    If you haven't already noticed, EyeTV is nowhere to be found this weekend in Apple's App Store. The latest offering from Elgato Systems has officially been yanked by Apple.

    And Elgato is taking responsibility for their mistake that prompted the snafu.

    The disappearance occurred only hours after MacRumors began reporting the discovery of "an easter egg in EyeTV iPhone application that allowed users to stream live TV to their devices over 3G wireless networks."

    While the workaround had been present since the application's launch late last month, it hadn't gained significant publicity until yesterday, and Apple quickly moved to pull the application from the App Store due to its agreement with AT&T not to allow television signals to be "redirected" to mobile devices.
    Live TV streams are anathema to both Apple and AT&T, unless of course they take place over Wi-Fi, not the 3G network.

    While the ability to watch streaming TV via the EyeTV app has existed since the app was formally launched in September, no one really noticed - including Apple - until the last few days. (Something tells me, however, that more than a few users were well-aware of this functionality and tried to keep it quiet before anyone noticed.)

    Elgato's Mike Evangelist responded to the yanked app and Apple's complaint by saying that the streaming functionality was an error on their part and that active steps will be taken to resolve the issue and return EyeTV to the app store as quickly as possible.

    "Some test code that enabled live TV streaming over the cellular network was accidentally left in the EyeTV app. Apple requested that we remove the code since their agreement with AT&T does not allow redirecting TV signals over the cellular network. The code was removed and a 1.0.1 version of the EyeTV app was submitted. We expect EyeTV to return to the App Store when the 1.0.1 version is approved."

    Yeah, EyeTV will remove the code that allows it to run over 3G and then they will put it back in the app store. Then us Jailbreakers will download it and run it with 3Gunrestrictor. The circle of life...

    I prefer my Slingplayer... It's awesome and my wife uses it in Japan to access our cable box in Hawaii. She never misses an episode of "Desperate Housewives"...lol

    That's pretty cool that the technology exists to watch tv on our little devices, but doesn't that chew up the battery like crazy? Video is all CPU, and streaming wifi (or 3G) adds another layer of processing -- how long can you watch a video for before the battery runs out?

    That's all well and good for iTouch owners over wifi because the battery is there to be used, but many iPhone users NEED their phones to function in emergencies at least. I guess I still feel nervous about using my phone line for games and tv (which is why I haven't jumped into buying an iPhone).

    Oh man, Hacker555, you chose the wrong site if you want to talk about stealing apps, or telling people about how cool you are because you know how to do it.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
