Almost a year ago, Channel Ten released an iPhone app for checking out its program guide and watching video from some programs. There’s now an Android equivalent — but only if you’re using a Samsung phone.
One assumes money changed hands to ensure that the Ten app was a Samsung exclusive. It’s a pity — even though Samsung is a big player in the local Android scene, going the exclusive route means HTC and Huawei and LG and Motorola and Sony Ericsson owners all miss out. The app is free and runs on any Samsung device with Android 2.1 or greater.
