Good news for all ABC iView lovers (including myself), ABC have said in an interview with APC Mag, that they will indeed be working on an application — or HTML5 site — to get iView on to mobile devices that don’t rely on Flash. Below is an excerpt from ABC’s Arul Baskaran.
“We’ve been working on ways of getting iView onto other platforms that don’t depend on Flash – not just for iPad or Apple. The connected TV platforms, Sony Bravia or whatever, they don’t use Flash either – we’ve already moved to H.264 video which places us in a good position to start building app versions for different platforms,”
Currently there is no date set for when iView will be available to non-Flash devices, but we’re hoping for some more news by the end of the year. As for people with Flash enabled devices, you can hit up ABC iView at any time.
Note: Image is not real, iView will not work on your Dell Streak :’(
