    I just went to a verizon store here to buy a droid, and found that Flash isn't supported, so... no Hulu, no sling.com, no slingbox.

    I asked if slingbox would be supported soon, they said, "No, not likely, because it would compete with our mobile TV app."

    Disappointed.
    :mad:

    Hope they're wrong about that. I'll buy one for me, one for my wife the minute I can watch my slingbox on it.

    Flash in 2010

    That will be AWESOME.

    I will hold off for now, but I WILL get my droid when it happens.

    Thanks Miami1683!

    TV.com app has a lot of videos and full episodes from CBS and some old classic TV shows. It also does Gamespot videos, Stupid Web Videos (or something like that) and some others. Neat app.

    NBC's mobile site (m.nbc.com) also pushes out streaming video, including full episodes of at least some shows. The video looks *great* on the Droid.
