Novac TV Tuner for Skype

by Randal

Skype TVSuppose you are a traveling salesman with a yen for the local anchorwoman. You spend day after fruitless day on the road, only to come home each night to a lonely hotel room. You sit there in your underwear drinking beer and watching the sub-par anchorwomen of whatever godforsaken town you happen to be in tonight. Well fret no more because the Japanese company Novac has released a television tuner for Skype software. It enables your computer to broadcast TV shows via the internet. With a laptop and an internet connection you can watch your local shows no matter where you happen to be.

I happen to know a thing or two about local news loyalty. When I was a teenager I briefly dated the comely daughter of the most trusted local weatherman in town. Unfortunately his daughter proved equally trustworthy, and I being a teenaged vat of seething hormones about to embark on a month-long trip abroad, our relationship was doomed. However had Skype and Novac been around I could have tuned in from half a world away to watch her frequent appearances on the local news. Of course this was 1985 and the only computer I had was a Commodore-64 and I somehow doubt my 300 baud modem would have provided suitable bandwidth.

The Novac TV tuner currently works with the Windows XP version of Skype. The software converts digitized video into a video conference stream and the channel can be changed by sending a Skype instant message. All you need to do is find something worth watching.

If you want to get a free Playstation 3 go to this website. It is very easy to do. It should only take 10 min to do and it should ship in one to two weeks after it is released. Here is the link for the PS3:
