Flash Access in your living room

Today during the Adobe MAX developer conference in Los Angeles, we announced availability of AIR for TV, bringing the Flash Platform to digital home devices such as Internet-connected TVs, BluRay players and set-top boxes. Check out more details on Aditya’s blog.

If you were not paying close attention, you may have missed this: AIR for TV includes Flash Access. By providing support for content protection on these devices, we are working with our partners to bring premium content via the Flash Platform to a broad range of devices.

And where would great video content look better than on a big display in your living room?
