ABC's iPad App a Success

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 10:00 AM

"ABC has released initial statistics on the performance of their iPad app, and the results are promising. The ABC Player has been downloaded 205,000 times since it's release just ten days ago, and the app has delivered 650,000 television episodes during that time."

That is a large number of episodes, and I'm in that tally having watched an episode of Lost just to see how well the app worked. This is a well done app so I'm hoping that more channels will come out with their own apps based on this success.

Netflix on the iPad!

"Get Netflix on your iPad. Just download this free app and you can instantly watch TV shows & movies streaming from Netflix. Watch as often as you want, it's part of your Netflix unlimited membership, resume watching where you left off on your TV or computer and browse movies and manage your Queue right from your iPad."

Well this is certainly great news, I was hoping they would come out with something and apparently they were working on it all along. You can download it here for free from iTunes, and you can also pick up the free ABC Player app so you can keep up on all the shows from ABC.

ABC on Hulu

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 08:00 AM

"We knew that Dinsey bought a piece of Hulu recently, but we didn't know when they would start putting content on the site. Wonder no more because Disney's ABC content is up on Hulu starting today. First up is Grey's Anatomy."

And so it begins. Glad to see they finally got some content on Hulu, however limited it is right now. I liked watching ABC.com to keep up with Lost (due to Dish Network losing ABC in my area for a period of time), but having to click to continue after the advertisements played got annoying at times. However, the resolution will only be 480p on Hulu, so if you want HD you will have to go back to the ABC site. So either put up with clicking to continue on ABC to get HD or suffer a little on the resolution at Hulu and get more convenience.

ABC/Disney Buy 30% Stake in Hulu

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 10:00 AM

"ABC is officially jumping on the Hulu bandwagon with the announcemnt of a 30% purchase in the entity. While this is great for us Mac users who love Lost and other ABC programming, it is even better for those of us with an iPhone."

With this deal ABC/Disney gets 3 seats on the board, along with NBC/Universal, News Corp. and Providence. Hulu really has become more successful than the "experts" predicted since it's inception in 2007, and is now the number 3 video site after YouTube and Fox Interactive Media. This deal certainly livens up the competition between Hulu and the Google/CBS owned TV.com. Add to the mix the rumored Hulu App coupled with Steve Jobs place as the largest Disney Shareholder, and it sounds to me like this news is really going to stir the proverbial pot for speculation!

ABC Coming to Hulu?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 08:00 AM

"We're big fans of video-streaming site Hulu-heck, we gave it an Eddy Award last year-but if there's one area in which the service sometimes falls short, it's the selection. Sure, there's plenty of content from NBC, FOX, and all their adorable little netlets, but that's because each of those companies owns a substantial stake of Hulu."

Back in February of this year, Hulu pulled all CBS content after CBS launched TV.com, and now ABC is in talks to bring their content to Hulu, in exchange for an ownership position. I'm all for getting as much content as possible on the net to make it easier to access. I've about had it with Dish and Directv for various reasons but I'm limited in what I can get where I live so I'm stuck with one of them (currently Dish, although their lack of ABC programming because they can't reach an "equitable solution" with Fisher Broadcasting is causing me to consider going back to Directv).

Woz Injured, But The Show Must Go On!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 09:00 AM

http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?se...ment&id=6704449

"According to his official Facebook fan group, The 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant went to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after suffering from some foot pain. His partner, professional dancer Karina Smirnoff, was also there for moral support."

Poor Woz. Turns out he did indeed fracture his foot, but thanks to the good docs he can still dance as long as he wears a removable cast and is careful with the foot. Great news for Woz, he said he "loves being a part of such a good and important thing" when asked about the show. I always thought he was a little eccentric, but his quote about the show confirms it for me. If you want to learn to dance like the Woz, catch Dancing with the Stars on ABC or check out the video.

ABC Big on Boxee

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 09:00 AM

http://blog.boxee.tv/2009/01/19/boxee-gets-lost/

"According to Torrentfreak, Lost was the most downloaded TV Show on Bittorrent in 2008.. ABC has two other shows on that Top 10 list (Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy). It is clear ABC is producing great content, and it is no surprise that our users want to stream it on boxee."

Since I'm away from my beloved DVR (it used to be a Tivo but that is a painful story) for most of the week while at work, this sounds like a pretty good alternative. They hope to release an Apple TV version soon. I stream shows now from ABC, CBS and FOX but I'm always looking for something better, at least until I can afford to get a Slingbox. Or maybe I won't have to buy one?
