CES 2011: Samsung and Adobe bring Adobe AIR to Smart TVs Samsung and Adobe announced that Samsung Smart TV will come with Adobe AIR and soon Adobe Flash Player 10.1.
The integration of AIR for TV with Samsung's Smart TV platform will create new opportunities for a growing community of more than three million Adobe Flash Platform developers who can use Adobe Creative Suite 5 to author content for AIR for TV.

Both companies also plan to bring Adobe Flash Player 10.1 to the Smart TV browser, extending the company's current support for Flash Player 10.1 on Samsung smartphones and tablets. The addition of Flash Player 10.1 means users will enjoy a more complete web browsing experience on the TV.

"Content publishers want to extend their reach from smartphones to the largest screen in the home all without sacrificing the unique context and experience of each screen," said Shantanu Narayen, president and CEO of Adobe.

"Samsung is the first device manufacturer to embrace Adobe AIR for TV, and together we will enable developers to extend media applications, social games and other forms of rich content to televisions and a wide range of Samsung devices."

In my experience, adobe air apps run really slowly. I don't know if this is true across all devices, however.
