Streaming sites creating iPad applications

There are going to be lots and lots and lots of applications coming out – in fact, engadget has a post about 1348 apps (their source is appadvice.com see their post “The IPad Apps Are Coming!“) – but there is also good news that some of the top streaming sites are creating iPad applications to deliver their content. Engadget lists Netflix (one of my favs) and ABC as the latest contenders to create an iPad application you can use to get their content.

“The free Neflix app is said to be launching along side Apple’s slate on April 3rd letting Netflix subscribers browse and manage their queues. More importantly, it will also allow subscribers to stream Netflix’s online collection of videos… There’s also a free ABC app tipped for April 3rd giving iPad owners WiFi access to full episodes of shows like Lost and Grey’s Anatomy.”

The New York Times posted that they’re hearing HULU is creating an iPad application as well. “People briefed on Hulu’s plan believe it may test the subscription approach with its iPad app. They could not say when such an application might be available.”
