I’ve never heard of Simple.TV but it’s now available for Windows Phone 8 devices but apparently it let’s you watch live TV, schedule recordings and browse upcoming shows and movies right from your phone or tablet. They’re calling it a whole planet DVR and it does require the hardware to work. I checked out their site and it kind of reminds me of Aero…
