Elgato has announced the EyeTV Mobile, a Freeview TV tuner for the iPad 2's dock connector.

The EyeTV Mobile connects directly to the dock connector and receives the television signal from a miniature telescopic aerial or a rod aerial.

You can then open the free EyeTV Mobile app and watch television programs - you'll also be able to record, pause and rewind.

It doesn't require an internet connection and comes with a miniature telescopic aerial, a rod aerial with magnetic base and removable suction cup, a printed Quick Start Guide and a USB charging cable. It supports MPEG-2 standard definition video, but MPEG-2 HD and MPEG-4/H.264 TV channels are not supported, and neither are Freeview HD or DVB-T2.

The EyeTV Mobile will cost £99.95 when it is available in late September. Yo'll be able to buy it direct from Elgato http://www.elgato.com and through retailers. The EyeTV Mobile app is free and is available on the App Store. You'll need to be running iOS 4.3.3 or later and the EyeTV Mobile only works with an iPad 2, not the original iPad.
