TVBook Pro comes in the form of a ExpressCard/34 card integrating a digital TV tuner with an amplified antenna. Your MacBook Pro powers the antenna through a free USB port.

TVBook Pro ships with EyeTV 2 software allowing you to watch digital television on your Mac and allows for pausing, rewinding or even skipping forward live TV. EyeTV’s built-in editor lets you quickly edit recorded television to save only the parts you want to see again.
TVBook Pro supports Digital Terrestrial Television (Freeview in the UK, TNT in France, DVB-T elsewhere), which will give you a perfect picture quality on your MacBook Pro.
