Sorry if this was asked previously, but is anyone aware of an app or website that allows for the search of legitimate content (TV show, movie, etc.) and returns a list of where that conent is currently available (Netflix, Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes, Vudu, etc.)? I know that Google TV does something like this with the content that it is aware of, but I don't want to have to buy another box to get something like this. Most of us here probably have multiple devices that can access multiple services - some overlap, some don't.


I recently lost a bunch of my DVR data and I wanted to look for a way to catch up on some shows that I am now behind on.


It would be great if some smart person came up with a tool that allowed for some filtering (i.e. search Netflix, but not Vudu) and would return a list of what is available along with other information about the content - resolution, audio format, cost (subscription vs. individual episode cost).


Thanks...

Zinc.TV seems to be a pretty good aggregator. I don't think it has iTunes, though.

Kylo Browser looks interesting.

They seem to have most premium services and sites covered.

Their search works well too.

Thanks. This one looks good if you plan on watching the show on your computer. It is still a little hard to search if you simply want to see which services offer a particular show. I want to be able to do a quick search and then use a device connected to my TV (i.e. Roku, PS3, Xbox 360, etc.).

Since most of the devices that you list up do not support the free content available online, as those require a browser and a PC, you will be limited to something like Amazon, iTunes, or Netflix and Hulu Plus (if you don't mind the monthly's).


One way that I typically use What's On, since I'm a Netflix user is to just filter it down to only Netflix content so I can see which shows are available.

Using the filter I can get results like those shown here for TV:

or here for Movies:

Same can be done for Amazon and iTunes. Hope that they also get Vudu in their lineup as well now that its on the PS3.
