    OK, so now that all my premium channels are available to watch free on fancast (as well as network & cable) I'm psyched.
    But I'm hoping that they'll be able to be viewed on the iPad. I'm not exactly sure what Comcast uses for fancast (flash?), but I'm hoping if it IS flash, they'll make it iPad compatible!

    Any ideas what they use?

    When I right clicked the video, one of the options was (About Adobe Flash Media Player 10).

    Yeah...... :(

    I was REALLY hoping we'd be able to watch it on the iPad.
    Maybe it's time for a twitter campaign :)

    Maybe they will make it eventually available using H.264? Most of it likely depends on how popular the iPad will become.

    Eventually everyone will have to make their content iPad/Apple device compatible. Fear not.
