    Do you mean to watch live TV?

    Only thing out there right now is Orb and it requires that you have a PC with a TV tuner hooked to it.

    Slingbox for iPhone is supposed to be released sometime this year.

    Can you do live TV with slingbox? I guess it's whatever is on your DVR so you could start playing it once it started recording something?

    Both sling box and Orb are live. Orb also alows you to record shows on your computer for watching later. I recommend Orb as it is the cheaper route if you have the compiter capability to run it. If any wants, i can list out a comparison. I've tried both.

    To be fair Slingbox also allows you to record/watch recorded shows providing you have a DVR at home.

    Not so good for me. Works well but the content is weak.
