No. I generally use it to download the iview I want and then watch 
later. It has a command line version, so I'm sure it would be possible 
to write another interface for it. I know the techniques it uses to 
download, can also be used to stream, and at one point there was an XBMC 
plugin for iview streaming too.
Integrated (into XBMC/Mythtv) would be very nice, and is something I 
need to look into again.
