CBS to bring iPad parity for web videos by fall

updated 01:45 pm EDT, Fri May 7, 2010

Desktop, iPad videos to go live simultaneously

iPad owners should have access to all of the web videos available on CBS.com by the start of the fall TV season, says Anthony Soohoo, the senior VP of CBS Interactive. While the iPad can already view some clips and episodes from the site using HTML5, access is otherwise unequal, with clips coming only gradually. This severely limits the practicality of an iPad for watching CBS shows.

CBS lacks any sort of dedicated iPad app, and has not announced plans for one, although rumors have pointed in that direction. Rival ABC already has an app, by contrast, and rumors have strongly backed the possibility of a Hulu iPad app, which would support both NBC and Fox. Dedicated apps allow for faster navigation and better video quality.

    Perspective is fun!

    "This severely limits the practicality of an iPad for watching CBS shows."
    I prefer to think of it as, "This severely limits the practicality of CBS shows as an entertainment choice on the iPad."
