Available in both free and paid options netTV offers live streaming access to over 200 channels from around the world including a larger-than-usual number of channels from the US.

TVUPlayer plays live TV for over 300 channels though only a handful of channels broadcast at the right bandwidth to play well. Some of the video feeds come in choppy or with audio syncing issues I actually couldnt get audio to work at all a result of the iPhones hardware limitations according to the developers. Still the app offers an impressive line up of live international television channels even if many of them are strange.
WorldView Live 2.99
WorldView Live isnt exactly TV but it is live streaming video. The app provides access to thousands of live web cams from around the world.

The quality is very impressive and the app is under active development – so bugs dont stay unsquashed for very long.

For MLB.tv subscribers however every game can be watched live via the iPhone app excepting those blacked out due to local market restrictions.
