Here’s a spot of good news for iView lovers who don’t have a PS3 or Bravia TV or iPad. An out-of-the-browser version of our favourite catch-up TV service is coming to Samsung internet-enabled TVs and Blu-ray players in the new year.

Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players offering Samsung Apps via the [email protected] service will get on-demand access to all iView content in “first quarter 2011”. ABC is also working on bringing out-of-the-browser versions to other IPTVs by the end of 2011.

Mind you, streaming iView content to your TV will eat into your monthly allowance.

With ABC iView, Xbox Live and more data allowance than we’ll ever need, I think I’ll be spending all summer in front my parents’ Samsung plasma. La Niña isn’t looking so bad after all.
