iPhone gets CBS streaming

Gizmodo takes CBS's new iPhone streaming app for a spin, and finds it much to its liking. Here's Wilson Rothman:

There are a massive number of shows from the CBS family of channels, including Showtime, the CW and even CNET TV–all those video reviews. You can create a feed with your favorite channels and shows, but it's actually pretty easy to get around if you don't have any preferences, thanks to a well designed interface.

The bummer for now is that though there are CSI, Gossip Girl and Trek full episodes, most shows aren't there yet.

  1. Nor UK..

    Here’s a thing: I tried to go through a VPN to fool iTunes into thinking I was in the US, but it turns out it doesn’t matter, I forgot you have to register in a particular country (for payment).. So, I wonder, if I go on holiday to the US, can I use the app store on my device? Will it just keep defaulting to the UK store?

    If you could get the CBS app, you could definitely use a VPN to get the shows.. So its just a matter of getting the app.

  2. Thats nothing- check this out:

    You can also use http://3click.tv to stream tv episodes to your iPhone, and its better than paying 1.99 per episode. They have something like 12,000 ad free episodes you can watch on the iPhone without downloading- Works in Canada and UK too!
    enjoy πŸ™‚
