On Monday, Elgato Systems announced that the company had “terminated the licensing agreement for EyeTV software with Miglia Technology, Ltd. Miglia can no longer ship, sell or advertise TV Tuner solutions bundled with Elgato’s EyeTV software. Customers using EyeTV with a Miglia TV tuner product are not affected by this change. Elgato EyeTV will continue to work with existing Miglia products. Elgato will continue to support existing Miglia/EyeTV customers with software updates and improvements.”
Miglia’s CEO Simon Ellson responded Tuesday in a letter on the company’s website:
The licence agreement between Miglia and the software supplier for EyeTV has not been renewed, Miglia will no longer ship products that contain this application in its TV solutions.
Customers that use this application with their Miglia TV product should have no concerns about ongoing support or upgrades, for updated information, please check the support section of our site.
Miglia has, over recent years developed possibly the broadest line of TV devices available for the Mac platform. These products are created packaged and designed for the Mac, that development work continues with many new and exciting products due for release in the next year. From time to time we have chosen to bundle other manufacturers software with our own hardware where it has been appropriate, this policy will continue.
To our current customers, we thank you for your support, to our future customers we promise the same quality of experience you would expect from a Mac focussed Company such as ours.
