    I loves me some Discovery Channel, but I'd probably just end up using the Comcast app.

    I love it too but my Tivo has my TV needs taken care of. THis would just be AADTINU (another app downloaded that I'd never use).

    i love the discovery channel but iTV pretty much has me covered for whats on and when. plus its not restricted to 1 station. but a general tv guide type deal.

    agreed

    who cares about the discovery app. let us know when it has something interesting, or full episodes.

    ps. i agree, iTV is great. not only is it the best tv guide but i love that it finds the closest movie theatres for the movie i want to see.

    I would have taken a look at this, if it were available in the Canadian App Store :p
    Guess I have to wait.

    Awesome. Absolutely awesome. I was just watching The Colony last night, and wanted to see more episides. Today, I downloaded this new App, and under the "Latest Videos," the newer episodes were listed. I clicked on one and it started playing on my phone!!!!!! (I am very happy with this App right now) :)

    Absolutely. In the i.TV App, there are numerous shows, including the History Channel, that have lists that you can click on and the entire show plays. The History Channel hosts their shows on Youtube, but they are entire hour-long episodes. I love the iPhone. :):):)

    +1 ^^^ Definitely liking the DC, but way too much content for me. Comcast app completes me.....:p

    Though "Time Warp: Hot Chicks" is looking pretty cool on the 3GS iPhone....

    So what does this app do that makes it something I would want? Maybe I am missing something but I don't get it.
