i.tv, i tv - tv guidei.TV is a new TV and movie guide that just hit the app store yesterday.  This app offers a vast amount of TV listings and movie theaters throughout the U.S. and Canada, providing show descriptions, previews and trailers, celebrity bios, as well as the option to write a review and share information and opinions about shows or movies.

As far as media browsing goes i.TV seems to have everything that is missing in most other guides, namely the ability to customize the information you receive. With options to browse by genre and to filter by media type, location, channels, ratings and friend recommendations, i.TV simply makes a lot of sense.

Further options include the ability to mark shows as favorites and hide channels or theaters you do not like.This makes selecting and scheduling your TV programs easy and allows you to have a movie listings app at the same time, all in one package.

The unfortunate downside is that i.TV can be very slow and seems to crash frequently. But with the prize tag showing "Free" there is nothing to lose and i.TV might just show the way for the future of the TV guide.

    I've wondered why TV Guide hasn't stepped up to the plate and made an app or webapp for the iPhone / iPod Touch. I've been using AOL's formatted TV Guide for the past several months. Before that, I'd found a TV listing website that formatted okay to my iPod Touch.

    Seems TV Guide is missing a HUGE opportunity here. Free is awesome by me. I'll probably stick with the AOL webapp (the interface is quite a bit cleaner than i.TV).

    That's a great point and I have also wondered why they haven't created an app. I haven't used the AOL webapp but im gonna go get it and play around with it.

    TV Guide has no future. Watching TV on the network's schedule is dead. And for the networks, fitting a limited number of shows into a 24 hour day is dead.
