CNN Ipad App....

Wed Dec 15, 2010 7:10 am

They released a new Ipad app today that allows live streaming to your Ipad, and that upgrade coming to Iphone. Does this mean that a channel might be developed for live CNN content?

Doens't the ROKU work off of the same technology that an Iphone app does? Correct me if I am wrong, as I don't want to get too excited. I thought that is what I read about how channels can be made.

Thanks much for any info or correction....

If it's like the "Live" streaming in the iPhone app, that's a little misleading. They only have live streaming available during major breaking news.

:( thanks for the clarification... maybe one day!

I know we can get the live CNN headline news HD feed from JasonTV, which is cool enough, be we were hoping for a dedicated CNN feed...

I haven't tried the iPad app, yet (my wife seems to have hidden the iPad :P), so it could be different, but I'd be surprised if it were.

I tried the iPad app for a few minutes last night and the "Live Video" button was greyed out, so I assume it's the same situation as the iPhone app and the live stream is only active during breaking news. That live feed (when it's active) is already available on Roku via PodTV.

I would guess since the guy above Kennyj has a quote filled with spam he really doesn't care...

I guess I totally missed that. I must've been tired.
