The National Film Board of Canada has added AirPlay video support to its iPad app, allowing users to stream films from the app to an Apple TV, a capability that was only recently made available to third-party apps with the release of iOS 4.3 last week. NFB Films for iPad provides free access to over 2,000 documentaries, animations and feature films from the National Film Board’s archives, including the ability to download films onto the iPad for offline viewing for up to 48 hours. In addition to AirPlay support, version 2.0 sports a redesigned user interface and adds multitasking capabilities, including background downloading of films for offline viewing. NFB Films for iPad is available from the App Store as a free download.
