Anyone aware of USB H.265/HEVC tuner on the market?

I have just seen this:
https://www.digizone.cz/clanky/dvb-t2-se-uz-siri-i-z-cerne-hory-a-lyse-hory/?utm_medium=kolotoc&utm_source=root-cz&utm_campaign=dvb-t2-se-uz-siri-i-z-cerne-hory-a-lyse-hory

and in CZ "H.265/HEVC" is already being deployed unlike the UK ...

Marc, you're confused. A DVB device doesn't actually need to "support" HEVC.
They don't care what codecs - MPEG, H264 or H265 - are used. It's up to the software to handle it.

You need any DVB-T2 tuner to receive the new Czech broadcasting.. The H.265/HEVC is video standard which is broadcasted though the physical layer (DVB-S/S2/T/T2/C/C2), so it's the data format on top of the physical data transfer.

So when I go to Prague my 2013:024f PCTV Systems nanoStick T2 290e will be able to tune in
and play programs form the new transmitter Cerna hora in DVB-T2 / HEVC?

Although https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/PCTV_Systems_nanoStick_T2_290e does not mention supported codes
Over at the manufac. web http://www.pctvsystems.com/Products/ProductsEuropeAsia/Digitalproducts/PCTVnanoStickT2/tabid/248/language/en-GB/Default.aspx
TV recording formats are MPEG-2 transport stream and MPEG-4 H.264 (AVC) no mention of H.265 (HEVC).

Yes, everything is in my explanation. DVB-T2 is just the broadcasting standard (to transmit and receive data). It has nothing to do with the contents (data).

So in case of 2013:024f PCTV Systems nanoStick T2 290e if I plug it in my PC, and use VLC to cune in it would work,
as VLC can deccode H.265/HEVC,

but trying to find my TV in the cert devices:
http://www.dvbt2overeno.cz/storage/app/media/devices_import/devices.csv
its not there UE40ES8000, as it does not have the H.265/HEVC, but that could be added if the
manufact. wanted it and the hardware of the TV support it?

I have seen it somewhere in discussion, best to buy dumb screen and attach to it what box one wants ...
rather than smart TV ...

It's totaly out-of-theme question. These pages are about Tvheadend software. Your TV probably does not have hardware H.265/HEVC decoder, so it's not able to view/present this video codec. You can move this discussion to the forum, but probably it would be better to ask the TV vendor to verify this.
