ABC Releases Player for iPad

iPadDisney, along with many other companies, are betting on the success of Apple's iPad which is being released tomorrow. The ABC network is releasing an app that will extend the network's video player to the device.

Given that we had the half-hour-long iPad commercial on 'Modern Family' recently (an ABC program), it seems that the network has gotten behind the new gadget. However, it's not just ABC. Marvel Comics, also a Disney-owned property, have announced an app for the iPad. In all likelihood, there will be a plethora of Disney apps for the iPad before too long. And soon after, other networks and companies will jump on the bandwagon if they haven't already.

Will the iPad signal the end of television as we know it? Probably not. The screen is too small for that and there is a comfort from watching a big screen television in one's own home. However, it will make watching shows on the go easier (provided a data or WiFi connection is available).

You realize that Steve Jobs is on Disney's board of directors and is its largest single shareholder, since he sold Pixar to them, right? It's not that surprising that ABC is a big iPad supporter.
