Tablets are good for watching television, but doing so using 3G data can soon rack up bills. The Anymode Mobile TV receiver aims to give you viewing please for much less.

The device is a dongle that connects to the Samsung Galaxy Tab or Note 10.1. The receiver enables users to watch TV programs live on their phone using the integrated antenna so that no additional Internet or 3G connections is required. In the UK users can access between 30 and 60 channels including DVB-T radio channels.

Setting it up was easy and within minutes we managed to find all available channels. The reception around our way (just outside London) was good with no noticeable artifacts or blocking.

The device is available from several UK stockists including John Lewis, Currys, PC World and Argos.
