Streaming Live TV to your Ipod Touch or Iphone using Orb

One of the many features of Orb is that it offers you the option of watching Live TV on your Games console or Handheld Device. To do this on an Ipod, you can download either the fully featured Orblive application ($9.99), or if you want a taster of what it can do, download the OrbLive Free application. The main difference of these being that if you want to view a TV channel or other recorded media, you are only offered a randomised list of 3 from your chosen category. You can dip in and out on the menus to get a different 3 TV channels or movies but this could be quite time consuming to find the one you want if you have a large number of them configured via Orb.
