AFL choose Rightster to launch AFLTV streaming

 Amazing, one of my main complaints about the previous lot that had the contract to stream the AFL was that they used 'Flash' to deliver the service. So, I couldn't watch the streaming on my iPad and iPhone because they don't support Flash. Well, you need Flash to view the footy with this mob as well. What kind of a dumb arse company sets up a business that alienates such a huge chunk of their potential audience like those that use iPhones and iPads. Honestly, the AFL would have to be one of the most amateurish organisation ever.

Are you sure you have to use flash?

Going by this line...

Once the service has launched, AFL fans will be able to watch Australian football across a range of devices including PCs and Macs, iOS and HTML5 compatible smart phones and tablets, and will have access to the full service for free for the duration of the NAB Cup.

...then I would assume that there is a way to view it without flash - is there an iPad/iPhone app maybe?

There is a browser for the iPad called Photon which allows you to watch flash-based video streams on an iPad. I use it for cricket when viewing video streams that don't work on Safari. Not sure how it works but it does. I think it actually puts the stream somewhere else that does support flash and does some kind of screen content mirroring over the web. I haven't looked into the technology of it but it does work. There is a noticeable dip in quality but thus far I have found it "acceptable" for cricket. But then again I have lived outside the range of conventional cricket broadcasts on TV for 22 years so my standards are pretty low in this area :-).
