Mohu makes a popular line of antennas that you can plug into a TV to pick up over-the-air broadcast television channels. But the company’s new AirWave isn’t just for TVs. It lets you stream live TV to a range of devices including smartphones, tablets, computers and media streamers from Roku, Apple, and Amazon.

The AirWave will be available in late Spring for about $150.

Here’s how it works: connect the AirWave to your home WiFi network, install a Mohu TV app on your device (or use a web app) and you can watch live TV on:

  • Android or iOS phones or tablets
  • PCs (with a web app)
  • Roku
  • Chromecast
  • Apple TV
  • Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick

In addition to watching live TV on just about any device, you get access to a program guide with 14 days worth of data.

One thing you don’t get though, is DVR functionality. You can watch live TV with this system (assuming you can get decent broadcast reception in your home). But you can’t record programs for later.

For that, you might want to check out another product announced at CES this week: Tablo’s Live stick, which is a $99 TV tuner designed to plug into just about any OTA antenna.
