The in-app purchase will cost anywhere from $10.99 to $124.99 and is billed on your iTunes Account. This is a renewing subscription per period.
With the native app you can:

Issues: The live stream is not really live. It is delayed about 30 seconds. The stream gets interrupted at times, probably due to the huge amount of people logging on to watch TV on their iPad. Also during our tests the Safari browser crashed at least twice and one time even caused an iPad restart.
Update Note: FilmOn was previously available via a Safari web browser at the URL http://filmon.com, but that feature is no longer supported for some reason, so you have to download and install their native application.

Woooh!! maybe I’m easily impressed, but I am blown away that this even exists.
I’ve been using it for about half an hour now, accessing over 3G.
The playback has seized up a few times when I select the program schedule. It unseizes if I select the channel again, but then I have to sit through the commercials again.
So I guess I won’t relay on it for any show that I MUST watch every second of, but I think that from now on I am going to be a lot more up to date on my favorite shows.Posted on November 11th, 2010 at 1:44 am by Vancouver Moose
WOOPS: my other comment about “having to sit through the commercials again” was incorrect. Those were the regularly scheduled commercials. I thought that they played automatically whenever a new channel was selected. Looks like I was wrong about that.Posted on November 11th, 2010 at 1:50 am by Vancouver Moose
I love it but it doesn’t work with iOS 4.2 for iPad xD.
Why? Because of the new version of QuickTimePosted on November 13th, 2010 at 7:38 pm by Kyosuke
I tried this and it worked great, but since updating to 4.2gm it no longer works, if this is not looked into it wont be available to ipad users in the coming daysPosted on November 19th, 2010 at 10:31 am by Tim

Here in Southern Spain we have lost our UK TV (They moved the satellite!) With FilmOn it is now fully restored. Good quality too. Using the iPad with an Apple TV box we can watch via the TV instead of the tablet.Posted on May 11th, 2014 at 12:39 am by tony pride
