CBC TV for iOS got a huge update a few days ago, bringing it to version 3.0. What was once an iPad-only affair is now compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch, and the Commission added AirPlay support to boot, allowing you to stream your favourite CBC television shows to an Apple TV (or Mountain Lion-equipped MacBook as of next month).

The app also shows the latest CBC schedule, which includes shows like “Heartland, Dragons’ Den, Republic of Doyle, Best Recipes Ever, Little Mosque on the Prairie, Rick Mercer Report and more”.

If you’re into CBC (despite their non-renewal of Jeopardy, I still love them) and don’t have access to a television, give the app a try.

Download it from iTunes.

    No Android app though which is wrong. The CBC News app sucks on Android and crashes all the time.

    You’d figure they would want to support the largest platform in Canada, in terms of units, but no.

    Get with it CBC!! Stop this one platform support crap!

      I mostly agree – I’m a CBC fan and am disappointed at how Apple obsessed they are. Their Android apps are a joke.

      But, I don’t think it is accurate to suggest that Android is #1 in terms of users. Maybe in terms of current sales, but not installed base. Hopefully soon though.

      Actually, Android has taken over as the dominant platform. Apple is not the largest anymore.

    “Non-renewal of Jeopardy”; Well that’s why we have WBZ and KOMO.

    And yesh, Android version. They need it. Desperately.

    No Android, No interest.
    My interest will peak at the first TV Network that releases a functional Android app.
