Watching TV is no longer limited by the location of your primary set. There's now a whole slew of solutions which will all you to stream your TV subscription and content over onto your mobile device so you can always keep up with your favorite shows or sporting events while on the go. Here are trio of devices which will allow you to remotely view and control your cable, satellite, or personal video recorder from your laptop or mobile device.

Elgato EyeTV HD
The EyeTV comes with a twin tuner, meaning that you can watch two different channels at the same time, useful if you're an avid sports fan who wants to keep up with a couple games at one time. When connected to your computer, you can watch, record, edit and watch all the shows in HD, while control everything with an IR remote control. The dual format capture allows you to record in iPad and iPhone format for optimal viewing on those devices.

Slingbox Pro HD
As long as your home broadband router is on, the Slingbox will stream your TV to your iPhone or iPad, no matter where you are. If you have an internet connection, you can log to your account and enjoy your favorite TV shows at 1080i resolution and while also being able to push any AV component connected to the Slingbox to your device.

Equinux tizi
While not being available in the US yet (looks like it make it our way, as Belkin is listed as a partner), our European readers could take advantage of this feature rich device. The tizi, like the units above, is designed to push digital TV programing to the iPad or iPhone. Simple to use: just turn it on, extend out the antenna, connect to the Tizi wi-fi network, and start the app. The TV receiver system plugs into your 30 pin connector on the iPad or iPhone, with a lanyard style receiver antenna, all of just 13 ounces, making this an ideal solution for regular travelers.
