HuffPo Launches iPad App, Could Impact TV

The Huffington Post launched an iPad app that could help tablets surpass TV as king of our living rooms, writes GigaOm. The app, called HuffPost Live, offers a strong mix of entertainment and social interaction and can throw itself onto a TV screen. The news site launched an online TV network in August that streams 12 hours of live footage a day from New York and L.A. The real game changer is the fact that the app can be slung onto a TV set using Apple TV. This means that Huffington Post has a chance to control not just a living room’s second screens but also the primary one as well.
