Any reason this won’t work with iPad 1?

Elgato always releases products for the European market first, then a few months later for the U.S.  Wake me when the US version becomes available, I will buy it!

Don’t count on this coming to the US.  The US picked ATSC for their terrestrial digital broadcast standard.  Among its many flaws, is that it is completely incompatible with mobile viewing.  For an ATSC receiver to have any chance of working the antenna has to be perfectly still.  Thats just not possible with the antenna sticking out the side of an iPad or other mobile device.
