[Private Channel] TV.com (No longer available)

Tue Dec 21, 2010 1:16 am

I've put together a new channel based on the TV.com iPhone application. It has a very limited subset of the content available on the website, but includes many full episodes of recent and classic television show, as well as some web shows.
It's still missing a few features that I want to add, but since I'm headed out of the country for a couple weeks, I wanted to get this out there before then. As always, I hope you enjoy it, and please let me know what you think!

You can add the channel via the following link: (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

Endless,

Just want to say Thank You for creating this channel. Many of the shows I remember from years pass.

This is exactly the type of channel I have been looking for.

Keep up the good work. :D :D :D

Great channel!

Just a couple comments:

1) Frame-rate seems to be around 15fps. I suspect there's nothing you can do about this, though, since you said you're pulling the feed designed for iOS devices.
2) I've tried four different shows so far. I was able to watch NCIS, Star Trek and Twin Peaks but when I try to play any of the Love Boat episodes, it flashes the "Loading" bar a few times and then returns to the episode menu.

1) I've found that in most cases, at least with the newer content, the framerate picks up after watching for a few minutes.
2) Oops. In an effort to get the channel to play the better quality streams, I set the minimum bandwidth a little too high for the love boat videos. I've fixed that now. Please enter and exit the channel store to update.

Great channel nice content provided from the ClassicTV catagory! The only suggestion I can make is the difference in audio 'volume' between the commercials and the episode being played. If you can dynamically auto-modify the volume to be at a constant same level for the commercial as well as the episode it would be nice! Commericals are kinda loud but agree with you in having them. Great job otherwise! :-)

The audio and commercials are both outside of my control, I'm afraid. Those are part the stream coming from tv.com.

Awesome. I've missed Letterman and Ferguson since cutting the cable. I could get them in pieces via the YouTube channel, but this is a lot easier to sift through (and full episodes are available). Also happy to have Twilight Zone and Twin Peaks here.
