Question
Dear ZZ

Is it possible to watch tv programs on smartphone device by interfacing with a external Wireless TV Tuner device?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Yes.  Cost for rights is a problem. Using such as NetFlix and AppleTV and other such adapter or tv rights usage is necessary.

But, it is gaining ground and many companies are looking for ways to enter into  this field. But it involves cooperation and contractual agreements with the broadcasters and movie houses.

But, it will surely flourish as time goes by.

I haven't heard of wireless tv tuner like you are thinking; probably because of the legal constraints.

There are some small attempts at solutions for this, however.
