If you have the computer firepower, ABC wants you to try out high definition video streaming of some their popular TV shows from their website:
ABC.com is now beta testing a player that will allow it to stream television shows in high-definition. The player is produced by Move Networks, and recommends a 2Mbps or faster broadband connection, 128MB of video RAM, 1 GB of RAM, and a resolution of at least 1300×770 pixels.
Only one episode from each of “Desperate Housewives,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Lost,” and “Ugly Betty” are currently available, but more are coming.
It was only a matter of time until HD streaming arrived, but I’m still not a big fan of watching TV programs on my computer. For those folks who have a computer integrated into their home media centers though, it seems like a natural and a harbinger of things to come.
