The Big iPad TV App Smackdown

The Big iPad TV App Smackdown | TV Everywhere | Scoop.it
Which cable, satellite, or telecommunications company has the best tablet app? Here is a look at nine apps that offer a mix of advanced features...
After years of sticking customers with clunky, ugly remote controls, television providers are suddenly infatuated with Apple's iPad. Cable companies, telcos, and satellite services are invading the iOS App Store with their creations, letting users take control of their televisions with touchscreens either from the couch or from afar.

i.TV extends to the iPad, adds Hulu integration

i.TV extends to the iPad, adds Hulu integration | TV Everywhere | Scoop.it
The free i.TV app for iPhone has been providing program guide and show information for TV addicts since October of 2008, and it's been improving steadily since then. With version 3, now available on the App Store, the app has gone universal and provides a full-screen iPad experience for browsing schedules, shows and TV-related news.
The main i.TV interface has been overhauled (clearing up some of the issues we noted previously), and now defaults to Shows mode; you can select from top programs, search and sift through a comprehensive list, or assign favorites for quick access. Tapping on a show gives you a rundown of the most recent episodes, details about upcoming airings, links to news and IMDb/Wikipedia entries on the show -- in other words, more info than you could possibly need. You can also set your TiVo DVR to record the show right from your iPhone or iPad. All the same features are available from the program grid if you want to see what's on now or at a future time.
There's more action in the 'Where to Watch' section; if you want to buy episodes from iTunes, watch them on TV or add DVDs to your Netflix queue, all are a tap away. Version 3 adds Hulu to the watching options, so if you're a Hulu Plus subscriber you can launch the Hulu iPad app directly from i.TV and start watching many shows in moments..
