Hi all

I was thinking, with freeview expanding into providing on demand services with links through to 3now and TVNZ on demand, does this mean its more likely that the Apple apps for these services will be updated to support Airplay?

Does anyone have any thoughts on this, or even better, inside knowledge?

Thanks

Unlikely, as it's down to "rights holders restrictions"...

I emailed tv3 recently about an apple TV app, they said and I paraphrase. "We are always looking at ways to bring our on demand services to the big screen". They left me with the impression that it's in the making. My personal feeling is that the tvnz ondemand and 3now apps will be available on apple tv4 when it's eventually released

No. That statement is a way to say no without saying no. Its about licensing allowances according to this thread. The ATV4 does not support third party apps, there is no way Apple would invite the to be created. But, if the ATV4 which runs on iOS is given an or the app store, yes it might happen, maybe. Or maybe not

But look at yahoo tv,that has home and away, isn't that brought to nz by tvnz? Where's the rights agreements at play in NZ there?

What is the difference of me sitting in my lounge watching a tvnzod programme on my iPad, and sitting right behind that ipad is a perfectly good big screen TV that could be used, but can't!

My family all crammed around the iPad last night to watch a tvnzod programme. The experience was rubbish

I share this frustration and unless you have a Samsung TV with the right firmware, you're not going to have TVNZOD.

"Rights Holders"...i.e. Samsung.

My understanding is that the work involved in getting TVNZ onto Samsung's platform was so painful, that TVNZ aren't particularly motivated to go much wider with their on-demand service.
I'm guessing a platform change may fix this...
But for me, it's all a little pointless, as standard definition / low bit-rate on-demand is a LOOOOONG way down my list of things to watch.
