Last month, CNN updated their iPhone and iPad apps to stream CNN and Headline News live… if you happen to subscribe to one of their television partners. While Verizon was announced as a compatible pay TV service, the app didn’t actually provide a FiOS TV login. Until today. And now our iPad will become our sunroom and kitchen television.
As a FiOS TV subscriber, it’s not quite the Cablevision experience I was looking for. But it’s a solid start and has the benefit of working beyond the home. In fact, it even works pretty well with AppleTV via Airplay. Although CNN is usually background noise and I’m not sure we’ll take them up on that use case.
