More Info:

 KatchTV is an "Internet TV" application for KDE.
It makes it easy to subscribe to "TV" channels
from all over the internet in the form of
podcasts, so that you can browse channels,
download shows, and watch them, all from one
convenient interface.

KatchTV is very similar to Democracy TV, but
focuses on KDE integration, using KHTMLPart and
embedded players such as kaffeine.  It's much
faster, and lighter on resources if you run a KDE
desktop without GTK apps.

Installation is easy, as long as your distro has
PyKDE and PyKDE.  Just untar to some directory
like /usr/local, and run the KatchTV program.  You
can also make a symlink to that executable from a
directory like /usr/local/bin, and KatchTV will
work out where to find its files.

Comments welcome; let me know if you've any
problems using it.
