Quick App: TV.com Streams CBS, CW, Showtime, and CNet to the iPhone
While Big Media wants you to stay off their lawn (i.e. not stream their content to your TV's), it looks like they're increasingly okay-ish with their streaming it to your PC and... iPhone. Macworld brings word of the latest content streamer to hit the App Store, TV.com (iTunes link):
Most of the content consists of clips, interviews, and promos, but you'll also find full episodes of some TV shows, such as "CSI: Miami" and the aforementioned [MacGyver] mixed in (well, to be honest, there weren't many other shows I could find full episodes of at first glance). Full episodes are presented as multiple clips instead of as a single video. You can search for shows using the Search box at the top, or tap on the Shows and Channels buttons to browse in other ways.
Of course, a few more things need to happen to flesh out this category. Getting other networks on board via apps for Hulu and other services is one. Also, realizing it's the 21st fraken century and NOT restricting streaming apps from international users would be grand. (TV.com is US App Store only).
Anyone tried it yet? If so, how was the quality? Would you use this over your laptop for TV to go? Over your TV for viewing in general?
