On The Go

With more and more services (Google TV, Hulu, Apple TV) threatening to dis-intermediate local television stations this news is a bright spot.  The article on AppleInsider suggests that digital television reception could come to the iPhone sooner rather than later.

Apple and ABC kicked another leg out from under ABC affiliates earlier this year by launching an app for the iPad.  People would argue how important the network lead-in is at 11:00 or 10:00 pm, but if users don’t need the local affiliate they won’t flow into the late news.

It is hard to say how many legs the affiliates can have kicked out from under them, but there is no doubt that other options will keep kicking.
