ABC Has Live-Streaming Mobile App In The Works

The New York Times is reporting that ABC is working on an app to stream live ABC programming to the iPhones and iPads of cable and satellite TV subscribers.

ABC, which is a subsidiary of Disney, would become the first American broadcaster to provide a live Internet stream of both national and local programming.

By providing the stream only to those who already pay for cable or satellite TV, the Times notes that ABC “preserves the cable business model that is crucial to the bottom lines of broadcasters, while giving subscribers more of what they seem to want — mobile access to TV shows.”
