I’m completely in love with Zap2it – especially since they announced today the addition of two new site features that allow users to watch favorite shows where they want, when they want.
The “On Broadband” feature, which is available here, provides navigation to full episodes of primetime TV shows available for streaming over the Internet. The guide focuses on free offerings from the five largest broadcast networks plus TNT and TBS.
Right now, I’m watching the full episode of “According To Jim.” This particular episode aired last night, but I missed it, so it’s awesome that I can watch it now – as in right now!
In addition to program links, the “On Broadband” guide provides users with show as well as episode level descriptions, original air dates, episode numbers and photos (when available). The service is powered by Tribune Media Services’ Entertainment Products division.
Also cool is that although I don’t have Tivo, there’s a Tivo Online Scheduling feature which allows those who do to remotely schedule recordings of their favorite shows from within the Zap2it TV listings grids.
My hope is that eventually there will be more networks and shows added. Since I watch very little television, most of what I do watch isn’t listed (we’re talking The History Channel and the Food Network), so it would be cool if more networks are added to the line-up, but for now, I’d say this is a step in the right direction.
