XBMC TV v0.1 - Streaming XBMC Plugin

I'm happy to announce the initial release of my XBMC Plugin, XBMCTV.  The XBMCTV plugin provides easy access to thousands of streaming videos from many sources around the net.  The plugin requires XBMC Dharma, if you're not familiar with XBMC you can read up about it here.

The current features:
Around 2000 videos available
Browse videos by category
View latest videos
Browse by channel
Browse by show

The latest version of the plugin can be found here:

To install the plugin just follow these steps:

Download the ZIP file and save to a location accessible by XBMC.

Open XBMC and browse to System > Add-ons > Install from zip file.

Browse to the file you downloaded and select it.


After installation the plugin will appear under Videos > Video Add-ons > XBMCTV

At the moment the video collection is limited to a few thousand streams so if you have any video RSS feeds you want added then leave a link in the comments below.  Also any feature requests are welcome just leave them in the comments.
