Verizon gives you a chance to watch TV while walking around

John Moe Aug 18, 2010

Because maybe you want to.

And maybe you wouldn’t then start bumping into stuff.

Could happen.

Verizon is talking up an app for the iPad that will let you watch live TV. I think there are some obstacles here, like the small matter of cable companies not being crazy about this. But Verizon says they have the bandwidth for the streaming and the perfect receiver in the iPad. So as long as lawyers don’t get in the way, everything is golden.
