I haven't had tivo, directtv, dish since 2005. I get like FOX, CBS sometimes with rabbit ears and two other local channels that's it. Only shows I ever watch live sometimes are 24, American Idol, Hell's Kitchen but many times miss those and others but have no fear. I have What's On (which I like better than i.TV btw) and i.TV but obviously those don't do me much good now do they. By far the best app is TV Forecast $3 for one simple reason if you don't have cable / satellite like me. Add your favorite shows (yes papa but the others let you do that too).....hold on children I haven't told you yet. Click on the show it shows you show title for that episode and sometimes summary if available but here is why it's worth it. Click on title of show at top and voila it shows season and episode number. Sorry I can't say anymore.
