iPhone TV online

The iPhone continues to amaze millions of people with its capabilities. The most recent trend has been with online videos.

While it is true that some videos do not work on iPhone (eg Flash), the important thing to note is that H.264 and Quicktime based video streaming does work.

With this well understood, a variety of major studios have put iPhone video content online.

Full episodes include 30 Rock, Beverly Hills 90210, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Crusoe, Days of our Lives, Heroes, Kath & Kim, Knight Rider, Life, Lipstick Jungle, MacGyver, My Own Worst Enemy, The Office, Smart Girls at the party, Star Trek and The Young and the Restless.

Webisodes and segments include Battlestar Galactica, Cartoon Networks, Flapjack, Disney’s Pixar Mater’s Tall Tales, The Late Show with David Letterman, Mythbusters, Criss Angel’s Mindfreak, as well as other selections on ABC, Animal Planet, Biography, Discovery, E! Online sites, Food Network, G4 TV and Travel Channel.

Previews, sports, and news clips are also available on CBS News, CBS Sports, ESPN, FOX Sports Network, MSNBC, and The Weather Channel.

So what’s the catch? The iPhone is a bit small to look at for long periods, and Wi-Fi over 3G is generally recommended.

So would you do it, since could you? In general, the video on the iPhone is perfect for capturing a current news clip of a pilot landing on the water or for entertaining the kids while they wait for the doctor.

To find all the great iPhone video sites, open the Safari browser and type “iphone.spreety.com”.
