ABC iPad app updating to including streaming through 3G

ABC iPad app updating to including streaming through 3G ABC's extremely popular streaming app for the iPad is set to get updated very soon, bringing 3G support. Currently the app only supports streaming movies and TV shows when connected to Wi-Fi.
The app was submitted to the App Store, pending approval in the past 10 days, and it should get approval soon.

The ABC app was at times the top free app available, and is currently number 6 in the iPad App Store.

While the Wi-Fi-only version was not a problem during the first weeks when the only iPad version available was Wi-Fi-only, Apple has since released a 3G-supporting version and most users take their device on the go. Wi-Fi is not always available when walking the streets.

AppAdvice says that "ABC didn't include a lower-quality, backup streaming capability in the first version of its app," because of its love for HD-quality streaming, as seen for example on ABC.com.

Thanks...I needed a good laugh...this sounds like the kind of app that Apple will block (it uses a lot of 3G bandwidth).
