Hello, I have tried tons of apps for watching TV shows and none actually works. The apps plays shows I never heard of of. I've tried TVU, TV.com, Justin.tv etc. I will like to watch MSNBC, Oprah/Dr. Phil, BET etc, so does any one knows a excellent app or can someone make one? I'm willing to pay whatever amount. My other question is how can I watch ustream on my iPhone

At Macworld, I found this company that makes a product to let you watch the TV channels you have in your house to stream to the iphone, here is a link to the product <http://tvplug.co.kr/products1.php>.
If you want subscription, there is http://www.filmon.com/ though it got though some legal battles and it has only channels from Los Angeles.

I use Slingbox. Slingbox is a TV tuner that you plug your cable wire or cable box into and you can watch your TV anywhere. The Slingbox itself costs about $100 or more, and SlingPlayer for the iPhone is about $30. SlingPlayer for the computer is free, you just need to go to a website.

You'll either have to search around video streaming sites like Ustream or Justin.TV (which seems to be the web site of choice for TV Channel streaming) or get a device that can stream TV content from your house over the Internet. Though, with streaming sites like Justin.TV you should be prepared for the stream to get taken down every now and then by the greedy company that owns the TV station they are streaming, so at times you might see more TV channels than other times.
Unfortunately, many cable/satellite providers (as well as content providers cough*Viacom*cough) aren't quite smart enough to realize that real streaming TV over the Internet is the future. My cable provider, Time Warner Cable, has kind of dove into this but are doing a really horrible job at it as their streaming TV app only works with iPad (even though it could easily work with iPhone/iPod Touch) and has pointless restrictions that the streaming TV portion of it can only be used on your home Internet (or possibly any RoadRunner connection, though I don't have my own iPad to test it out yet) making it a bit useless.
Personally, I use the Justin.TV app (which used to be free) in my iPod Touch (combined with my Cricket Wireless Android phone with a Wifi Tethering app) to watch my favorite TV channels while on the go.

I only watch sports and I've found that the best way to watch my favourite team play on the iPhone4 is via the some of the sports betting apps. For example this Bet365 betting app for the iPhone allows you to watch most sports live via your iPhone (or Android) smartphone once you have some money in your account. You can just deposit a dollar if you want and leave it there.

It looks like you may be from the US, but if you are in the UK, you can use TVCatchup (it has a slightly misleading name). It lets you watch any freeview channels (free digital channels) via a computer or mobile device. The catch is - you must be from the UK to use it (you need a UK IP) and you must also have a UK TV License.
