We are seeing more apps featuring TV content on iOS devices. Recently NBC, TBS and CBS rolled out apps that allow users to view full-length episodes. Apple is now highlighting some of the best “TV Time” apps in the App Store.
There are apps in the featured “TV Time” section for both the iPad and iPhone that include streaming content, as well as software to help you share, find and learn more about TV content.
