Broadway by PCTV Systems

Watch live TV on your iPhone, iPad, Android device or PC or Mac – at home or around the world!

Get TV on your iOS® and Android® device – instantly!

Broadway is a small stand alone device which connects to your TV source (TV antenna, satellite dish or a cable set-top box) and sends live TV wirelessly to an Apple iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet or a PC or Mac. Live TV is transmitted by Broadway to your mobile device over your home Wi-Fi network or streamed over the Internet.

There are three Broadway models, for use with TV all over Europe

Broadway Triple HD 292

Broadway Triple HD 292 has a triple mode TV receiver that supports three TV formats: Freeview HD, Freeview and digital cable (DVB-C) transmission formats: one for Apple devices and one for devices which have Flash support.

Broadway HD-S2 contains one Freesat DVB-S / DVB-S2 receivers so you can watch live satellite TV on your mobile device.

Broadway TD

TV for Apple devices

On Apple devices, live TV from BROADWAY is watched with Safari, so you don’t need to download an app. Simply open a Safari window, enter the Internet address of BROADWAY and you’ll be watching live TV!

TV for Android phones and tablets, PCs or Macs

For Android devices, PCs or Macs, simply open any Internet browser with Flash support, enter the Internet address of BROADWAY and you’ll be watching live TV! Now you have access to Freeview or Freesat everywhere at your home - even if you live in an area with weak DVB-T signal or you don't have a satellite antenna connection!

How does Broadway work?

Broadway connects between your TV source and your home Wi-Fi network. Broadway takes your TV signal, converts it to format which can be displayed on your mobile device (the Apple iPad and iPhone use one format type, while Android, PCs and Macs use another), and then sends the converted TV signal to your home router. Your home router then transmits the live TV signal to your mobile device via Wi-Fi or the Internet.

Broadway contains a versatile TV tuner with support for cable and satellite set top boxes, ATSC over-the-air TV signals and unencrypted digital cable TV (clear QAM). If you use a cable TV or satellite set top box to watch TV at home, Broadway connects to the audio and video signals on the set top box. Then from your Apple device no matter where you are in the world, you'll have full control of the TV channel selected on the set top box via Broadway's "IR-blaster" technology.

Broadway has a built-in high quality H.264 HD video encoder, which turns your TV signal into a form which can be played on the Apple iPhone or iPad, or into a form which can be played on other devices such as Android or a PC or Mac.

Broadway is "always on" with extremely low power consumption. Connect Broadway to your TV source, put it in a corner and Broadway will always be ready to send your favorite TV programs to your mobile device, anywhere in the world!

Broadway can also stream live TV to a PC or Mac

All that's required to watch live TV on your Mac is Safari. Broadway converts the live TV signal to a form which can be watched in Safari. If you would like to watch live TV on a PC, you can use any PC Internet browser such as Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox.
