    Intro
    This is a guide reguarding the high demand for streaming iPhone and iPod Touch media. Using this method is recommended because:
    A) It does not require you to pay any money
    B) It is extremely easy.
    C) It is very fast, doesnt require anything other then iMobileCinema
    D) It has an amazing variety, from most television shows, old and new to movies.


    Requires:
    A computer with working internet
    A Jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch which is connected to wifi
    iMobile Cinema from Cydia

    Steps
    0) If your iPod Touch/iPhone is already jailbroken and you have imobilecinema skip to 5
    1) Turn on your iPhone/Touch
    2) Jailbreak your iPod/Phone (If you do not know how to do this, google quickpwn, the rest will be explained on the website)
    3) After jailbreaking your device, ensure you have cydia and Installer.
    4) To download iMobileCinema, open Cydia and touch Manage>Sources>Edit>Add "http://d.imobilecinema.com" and search iMobileCinema and download it to your device.
    5) On your computer, go to SurfTheChannel.com and find an episode/movie you would like to watch on your ipod.
    6)If there is not a youtube or megavideo link to watch it on, it wont work with this guide, so find another movie/episode.
    7) Write down several megavideo URLs that youd like to watch, all you can store on your devices "Notes" app, or write the EXACT name, EG SP905 (which is a southpark episode I previously viewed)
    8) Go to the URL you wrote down, or search the exact name of the video on http://www.megavideo.com/ and touch the circled play arrow (If instead you see a lego piece, iMobileCinema is not on or malfunctioning)
    9) Enjoy the content!
