    Given the popularity of reality talent shows and the behaviour of many viewers who take to the web to update Facebook or Twitter as they watch, The Channer TV could well be an app to keep an eye on, and as it is free to download it will certainly be a popular choice with anyone who has strong opinions about what they’re watching…

    The list of Windows Phone 7 TV apps includes YouTube Don’t forget YouTube as a means to watch TV shows on your Windows Phone 7. The YouTube app is probably one of the worst available in terms of user interface (it pretty much launches the search portion in a poorly rendered page in the web browser) but you can access all of YouTube’s vast directory of videos and clips as well as complete shows to watch on your Windows Phone 7.

    YouTube also integrates with your Music & Videos hub so you can easily browse through what you have already downloaded and watch it again!
