The latest iteration of free, popular and useful TV, movie, and DVD guide for the iPhone and iPod touch, i.TV made its debut today on Apple’s App Store.
i.TV 1.4 includes a dedicated tab for Comcast subscribers, the world’s first “shakable” advertisement, AT&T U-verse listings and major performance improvements.
“Along with efforts to make i.TV faster and more stable, i.TV 1.4 includes a special menu tab for Comcast subscribers with information about video on-demand offerings,” said i.TV CEO, Brad Pelo. “Yes, i.TV is a movie, DVD and TV guide, but it is also a hub where media companies can more directly interact with their customers.”
i.TV has also integrated services from companies, like TiVo and Netflix, in order to connect users with their favorite media providers. With the release of i.TV 1.4, i.TV users now have instant access to Comcast video on-demand listings.
