ABCとCBS、iPadへ動画無料配信へ

The Wall Street Journalが伝えています。

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that ABC and CBS are hard at work adapting episodes of their TV shows for the iPad, with both set to offer streamable programming to new slate owners immediately upon launch. Their delivery strategies diverge slightly -- ABC will use the app that was unearthed (and confirmed by us) this morning whereas CBS will stream through the browser (hello, HTML5!) -- but the eventual user experience will be a commercial-supported affair that should be familiar to those who've used their respective online streaming services already. All that remains now is for NBC and Hulu to fall in line, as expected, and your portable media consumption menu will be complete. It'll also be interesting to see what happens to iTunes Store pricing for episodic TV programming, which will soon be up against free (or in Hulu's case, potentially subscription-based) alternatives.

iPadはFLASHをサポートしていないのできちんとHTML5での配信となることから、iPadでも再生できるようになります。ブラウザ経由かな?
こういうのを国内でもNHKとかがやれば盛り上がるのにな。ま、無理だろうけど。

国内でも4月末に発売されるiPadだけど、iBooksは国内展開はしばらくなさそうだからつまらないな。

お、なにげに私の誕生日である4月27日に全世界発売開始なんて噂もあるんだ。こりゃ誕生日プレゼントに1台ゲットだな。
