Currently there is no accessory/TV streamer option for the Halo 2. Starkey's accessories run off a 900MHz wireless technology, which work with all but their Halo 2 devices. The Halo 2 devices run off of 2.4GHz wireless technology.

Nothing at this time, however you can use the Tunity App in the Appstore for the same thing.

While attending a conference at Starkey in May, I asked the Starkey people at my dinner table about this very thing.  The basically said that they were working on it.  They also said that since Starkey hearing aids are software based any improvements should be backwards compatible. This sounds good but doesn't make sense because you would think a different attenae would need to be utilized.  They also were a but upset when I said I would not order Halo2's for my patients since Resound LiNX2's have more features and capabilities.  You may want to check out the Oticon Opn, whics uses bluetooth, near magnetic field tecnology. and 250GHz for its wireless communication.  It could prove to be the best hearing aid out there yet!  I just ordered my first pair to try!

Darn it! Ellen beat me to the answer. The only way I can one-up her is to post the link to the Tunity App in the Appstore so you can read about it directly: link But here's a description of it directly from the site: "Now you can tune-in wherever you go! TUNITY is a FREE app that allows you to hear any muted, live TV’s audio directly on your mobile device. Simply scan the TV, let Tunity locate the channel and stream the audio through your headphones or bluetooth speaker." So, you can essentially use this app to link your iPhone to your TV's programming, and then the iPhone can transmit the audio to your Halos (1 or 2). Better than buying a TV streamer!
