Now, I don’t want to make too, too much of this, but after CityTV launched their iPad app , and that app got a lot of attention I think all the other broadcasters would be fools not to try to follow suit.

This is just a speculation on my part, gut feeling, but I’m willing to bet that CTV will have a video-focused iPad app out in the next few months
