The times are not good for Flash – after Adobe announces the death of the platform in mobile, the TV version is the next to go. now states the following:

The implications for the connected TV world are widespread, although Adobe’s ambitions in this field did not stretch far beyond Sony and Google TV/Logitech, the technology had been picked up by Liberty Global’s Horizon box for UPC and the UK’s YouView. “Adobe will continue to support existing licensees who are planning on supporting Flash Player for Web browsing on digital home devices and are using the Flash Player Porting Kit to do so,”

However, it looks like the future path – from Adobe’s point of view – will be AIR:

The company said that its future work would be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores.

Given that RIM is already offering a native SDK for its PlayBook, I am not sure to what extent this will catch on – stay tuned for info as we get it!
