    Apologies if you already know but I found this and it is epic

    1. Visit TVCatchup - Never Miss A Show Again
    2. Register it is easy and instant
    3. Login and go to the iPhone page which is a neat screen of most free to air channels.
    4. At the bottom of the screen push the + button and click 'add to homepage' and add and an icon appears on your iPhone

    When you click you have a choice of most uk channels free and live and pausable!

    Enjoy if you don't already

    This has further strengthened my case for an iPad as it will mean having a portable telly and they have cITV and CBeebies/CBBC on it as well as E4 so I can watch the Cleveland show :D

    I love this. :thumbs-up:
    I used it to watch the final of Celebrity Big Brother in the middle of Bristol airport. I had two complete strangers sat either side of me and we were speculating whether it would be Alex or Dane that won. We were actually relieved when DH's flight was delayed so we could see the result before he landed! How sad are we?! It also means I can go to bed and not miss the end of a programme because I'm too tired to sit up and watch it.

    thanks, i tried switching wifi off this morning and couldn't watch. Maybe it's just the signal strength around here.
