According to the New York Times, ABC is developing an app that enables live streaming of shows to mobile devices such as the iPad and the iPhone.
Cable and Satellite subscribers will be able to stream ABC’s live programming regardless of where they are. Well, so long as that place has a network connection. ABC does have a streaming app for iPad, but it’s not live broadcasting. It’s made up of shows that have already broadcast.
The App, which may be called Watch ABC hasn’t been officially announced, and the New York Times’ sources aren’t authorized to talk about it, very little information is available. While I personally like the idea of streaming content on my iPad, I don’t like the idea that every network is making its own app. I don’t want to have 20 apps just so that I can watch my favorite channels. It’s annoying.
