If you have an Apple product such as an iPhone or iPad, you know it can be frustrating not having the ability to watch video from the Internet. This is especially frustrating as a cycling fan. Since we don’t get much video of cycling on our US networks, much of our opportunities to see professional cycling have to come over the Internet. Thank you, Versus for making it possible.
The video above shows the same Tour Tracker that you would access on your computer. Until recently, Versus used Flash for showing their video. With the Tour Tracker that has changed and they are using a streaming tool that allows the iPad to process the feed… and it is quite impressive.
Now if UStream and other streaming services would do the same thing, cyclists would have more options for accessing the professional peloton on the Web. For now, I’m just happy with the step Versus has taken.
