So being that i hate commercials with a passion i am always flipping channels, until i bought my iPhone. Now i pretty much just surf the web and post on the boards here at EIP.

I have been searching for an app made for the iPhone that is a tv guide. Or atleast a good website for tv guide listings.

Any ideas?

Well there is tvguide.com.

But I use Orb--seems very fast and if I see something I like I can even start recording it (on my MCE PC).

It's a an app that runs on your PC to feed connected devices video and audio. Doesn't work 100% with the iPhone, but the TV listings part does work fine.

www.orb.com for more info.

And I feel the same about tvguide.com, and there may indeed be something out there that is better.

tv.yahoo.com and www.zap2it.com both have good TV listings. I like the interface of yahoo's better, and it works better on the iPhone, but the search absolutely sucks. You can't really search for an upcoming episode within the next two weeks, like you used to be able to do there. The search on zap2it.com works great on firefox, so I use it at home, but it doesn't work on the iPhone, as flash is involved. So it's yahoo's on the iPhone (with no search) and zap2it.com on my desktop (with search).

yahoo is very slow over edge, at least for me. I haven't tired zap2it, but will give that a try tonight.

I haven't compared, so I don't know which is best, but while you're trying the others, titantv.com is yet another place that does guide data.

The tv guide website has a new mobile portal which I think is the best for tv listings so far.

You can find it here: http://wireless.tvguide.com/

The cool feature is that you can save your favorite channels so you don't have to browse through 300 channels every time you wanna see what's on tv
