If you’re a fan of Television networks such as ABC, NBC, and CBS then this may be some exciting news for you. You can watch recent episodes of your favorite shows from these networks right on your BlackBerry PlayBook. Many of you have probably fired up your browser on your desktop or laptop to see an episode of your favorite show that you may have missed, but did you know you can do the same thing right from your PlayBook.

To watch a show from your PlayBook, all you have to do is open up the browser and head over to the site of the network that carries your favorite show. From there you find the link to “watch full episodes” of the desired show and then you can pick and watch an episode. This is one advantage that the PlayBook has over some other tablets on the market. The flash-enabled PlayBook browser allows you to see the web in full, just like on your laptop or desktop computer.

We have tested ABC, NBC, and CBS on our PlayBooks to ensure that episode streaming works through the browser. This should work for most websites that offer streaming video; however, some sites may be blocked due to licensing restrictions. Hulu is one such site that is blocked due to these restrictions. If you find more streaming video sites that work in the PlayBook browser, be sure to let us know so we can get the word out to all out readers.
