I, too, travel frequently and would love to have my cable programming with me that I pay for. With this available to me on my iPad, Insight becomes that much more valuable to me.

Michael -

What is your response to Jeffs questions? I am a longtime Insight subscriber, but with every article that comes about iPad TV access with other providers, I grow more and more envious. I would like to see Insight place much more emphasis on this new technology rather than expanding OnDemand programming and adding features that add little value to me. I travel frequently and would love nothing more than to have my cable programming with me that I pay for. With this available to me on my iPad, Insight becomes that much more valuable to me.

Jeff, I personally hope that it is on the back-burner for Insight. Cable to iPad is in its infancy and is not widespread and apparently faces legal issues that need to be worked out first. I personally think Insight should go after all ready widespread, legal-hassle free web programming... HBOGO.com is on Verizon, ATT, Comcast and is Beta for COX & Suddenlink. ShowtimeAnytime.com content is available to Comcast customers with a larger launch coming soon. ESPNNetworks.com is available to Brighthouse, TWC and Verizon. They're out there, Insight just needs to work out the terms. Catering to iPad only customers (for now) seems to be catering to the minority... I would think more people would get use out of the above web portals via Home-PCs/Laptops than if Insight were to ignore them and put all their attention/time into a iPad portal. Also, who's to say the above sites won't soon be playable on an iPad with Adobe developing Wallaby?

Hi Michael,
Does Insight have any plans to offer a similar iPad app of its own? Or are you waiting to see how this spat between TW Cable and some of these major programmers turns out before moving forward on anything?
Thanks!
