Jailbreak: Watch Live TV On Your Apple TV Via Your iPad & AirPlay

As expected, the jailbreaking frenzy continues with the new Apple TV, the iPad and Apple’s AirPlay feature. As soon as the creative minds of developers get their hands into Apple’s APIs, cool things happen.

How about using a jailbroken iPad to bring live TV to your Apple TV via AirPlay? Watch the video after the break.

The following video shows how a developer managed to stream live TV from the iPad to an Apple TV via AirPlay. The developer used AirVideoEnabler, a jailbreak utility, that lets you stream via Mobile Safari to your Apple TV and other apps. You will see how the developer uses FilmOn to watch live television via Mobile Safari. In other words, a jailbroken iPad with the AirVideoEnabler tweak and FilmOn can bring live TV experience to your Apple TV.

    Helpful video! Another option would be the sling app offered through DISH, as an employee I have been able to work with it quite a bit. I can watch live TV and everything I recorded. Just another option that I would recommend.
