Hulu plus is one of the most popular apps for watching TV shows on your device.

Of course you can’t miss Netflix. It provides you both TV shows and movies. But it’s not a free service if you prefer to a free one. Netflix is well-known for its rich contents where you can find almost any hot and classic shows and movies. (The movies in Netflix are a incomparable option if you wanna watch movies on your iPhone.) It charges $ 7.99 per month which is the same price as Hulu+.
There is a decent lineup of videos in Television, and those videos are from CNN, CBS, FOX, ESPN, Comedy Central and more. You can only watch TV on iPhone via Wi-Fi using Television.
Like Television, TVU currently works only via Wi-Fi. It offers you live TVs from more than 300 channels all over the world and you can watch TV without limitation of time. You only need to pay $5 to get the service.
