Article first published as Apple Joins Video Streaming Trend on Technorati.
Video streaming seems to be taking over the web. On a daily basis, online video surfing is sky rocketing, not only entertaining users, but replacing regular cable TV as well.
Major brands seem to be pitching in and making room for this fast growing trend. Amazon and CBS are sezing the moment to broadcast re-runs via the major e-retailer. Apple could not be left behind of course, rumor has it more than just the iCloud, the brand is opening a special feature on iTunes for video streaming, iTunes Replay.
The AppleInsider reports the system will function very much like the iCloud where users don’t need to pile up their hard disk space, but rather pay for it to be played from the Web. It looks like the new feature soon to be incorporated on iTunes 8 will be a mix of Netflix’s model and other online streams like Amazon’s.
It is also complementary to Apple TV and iPad or iPhone devices. Carrying your own movie theatre in your device has certainly been available for quite sometime now; but for Apple fans and movie lovers, this may just be the push they’ve been waiting for.
You will need the Quicktime player to watch this, which will be taken care of in Apple devices; it can also be seen in similar platforms. iTunes replay also promises a much faster connection than competitors. So now, kick back and enjoy!
