Should.  It's a just a web app, although designed to work in Safari on
the iPhone/iPod.  All the magic of actually watching the shows is simply
a transcoding to mpeg-4 on the backend, and then embedding the video in
a html page that the built-in quicktime viewer (hardware accelerated of
course) can display.  Very simple concept, but very cool, and well done.
 However you can't watch live TV.  For me, personally, I don't care much
about live TV, so it promises to work very well.

I presume the code that will be released is the custom web backend stuff
(kind of like mythweb, but for the iPhone).  Thanks Chris!
