The home screen of TV.com offers you currently featured episodes along with a tool bar of all the available networks that offer clips/full episodes.  Here is a screenshot list of the available networks.
Since there are many more clips than there are full episodes, a nice feature to search for only full episodes can be found by hitting menu > shows.  There is a tab for full episodes only if this is what you’re after.  Here is an abbreviated list of popular shows that offer full episodes: As The World Turns, Bold and the Beautiful, CSI, Late Show with David Letterman, NCIS, and more.  Additionally, there are full episodes of Classic TV shows like: Beverly Hills 90210, Hawaii Five-O, MacGyver, Melrose Place, Star Trek, and more which is very cool.  With all of these full episode options, you can’t go wrong!
When I streamed CSI over 3G I had no problem with buffering/skipping in the video.  I didn’t try using WiFi but I’m sure it would be even more steady and reliable.  The quick loading times and the reliable video are a big upside to this app.
Lastly, I think the best feature of this app is the My TV option which can be found in the menu.  With this feature you select your favorite shows/topics that are offered with TV.com and the app will then create a feed based solely on your choices.  Now you can filter through the videos you don’t care to watch and only get those you do.  Great idea and implementation.
Overall, this app offers a great ability to access some of your favorite shows/videos on the go.  However, you aren’t going to find all the shows you enjoy but hopefully the list of supported shows will continue to grow.  Definitely try out this app, at the least it’s a great way to kill some time and stay up to date with your entertainment.

  1. Why isn't TV.com available on the new t-mobile my touch 3g the way it was on the older my touch? Is there any way of getting it back?

  2. Hmm.. I'm not sure why it isn't showing up for you with the new My Touch 3G. I searched for TV.com and found it with my G1. Are you able to find other apps that you wanted? What version of Android is the new My Touch 3G currently running?

  3. the my touch 3g is currently running version 1.6

  4. That's quite odd, since I'm also running Android 1.6 and am able to find it. Are you outside of the US? I'm not sure if there are other restrictions on the app.

  5. I SO wish there was a way for me to get this on my phone. I am in the Netherlands and when I scan the barcode or search for it in my market it’s not found. Grrr :(

    • @Breigh Sorry about that! Hopefully something comes along soon (or this app expands to an international audience)

  6. Are you sure this application doesn’t cost anything? Before you are allowed to use the application toy have to agree to their “terms & agreements”. I read through them and they said something along the lines of CBS may charge you for use.

  7. Why is not working? I scanned the QR code and I’m receiving an error when I want to open it. Somebody could help me? Thanks!
