“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 5 - Macenstein

“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 5

Thank you, we have our winner. This contest is now closed. Congratulations to faithful Macenstein reader Carrie!

On the Fifth Day After Christmas, Macenstein gave to you (or, more accurately, gave you a chance to win…) An EyeTV Hybrid from Elgato!

EyeTV Hybrid by Elgato
Above: This thing will change your life. (Mac not included)

Looking for a nearly endless “free” source of movies and TV shows for your iPhone/iPod? Or maybe you just want to watch and record High-Def TV on your Mac? Well, assuming you win, you’re in luck! Today we’ve got the super sweet EyeTV Hybrid Mac TV tuner up for grabs, and at the risk of being accused of overselling this, I couldn’t live without mine. Maybe it’s just because I have kids, but if I had to pay for all the episodes of SpongeBob, Hannah Montana, Blues Clues and Barney I have put on my various iPods, iPhones, and Apple TVs over the years, I would have gone broke. (Well, broker). And I’ll be damned if I am going to PAY for an episode of Barney!

The EyeTV Hybrid delivers stunning-quality HDTV to the high-resolution display of your Mac. And because it receives both analog and digital TV, it’s an ideal (and inexpensive) solution for the digital transition. What’s more, EyeTV Hybrid is not just a TV; thanks to the included EyeTV 3 software, it’s also a digital video recorder (DVR) with a comprehensive Program Guide and editing capabilities. It’s a DVR that can put your television recordings on a Mac, iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV with one easy click of a button, and can export them for use in other Mac video applications. All this, in one small TV tuner stick.

To enter: Since the Hybrid is all about recording video, leave us a comment below telling us the one show you can’t live without. Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope). Open to all readers world-wide. Good luck, and thanks for reading Macenstein! (Oh, and be sure to enter ALL our “12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaways!)
Please note: Comments may take a while to show up, please do not double-post. Thanks!
