    A nice and steady addition of channels. It's a product that continues to get better.

    Android or Ipad Directv app, but just for in-home network live tv streaming

    I don't really get the point of in-home streaming. If the app allowed you to stream from anywhere, over wifi or 3G, that would be a great app.

    I agree. While I appreciate the efforts, the times where I need/want to watch something, while in the house and where a TV is not available, are few and far between.

    I hope significant efforts are being made to allow for outside the home streaming. That is where the real value comes from IMO.

    Currently there are 5 channels that allow live outside the home streaming. About 35+ channels are available for on-demand streaming outside the home.

    The technology is there...it's just the rights to do so that are missing.

    Where can I find the Android version of this? I have an ipad and I use it, and it works very well, but where can I obtain this Android version that lets me watch the live stream?

    At home streaming allows me to be in the Executive Library and keep up with the Golf Channel/Tennis Channel/MLB Network/NFL Network on my iPad! :D

    Come March Madness, two games on the screen (PIP) and one on the iPad!

    While home streaming is fine, I can see ALL of the channels via my Slingbox, and the corresponding app for the iPhone & iPad. Granted, the app is pricey at $14.95, but it gives me EVERY channel I subscribe to.

    There are plusses for the home streaming.

    No additional hardware or software other than a free app. No additional cost.

    No tying up a tuner.

    No tying up an output.

    Quicker, cleaner response than a slingbox directing a receiver.

    Advantages of sling exist too. No limits on what you watch or where you watch it.

    I use both.

    I use it to work out in the morning. Take my iPad in the garage, jump on the machine and stream video in home while working out. My kids are not allowed a tv in their bedroom, but every once in awhile we will allow them to stream a movie or something on the iPad that they can watch up in their room in their little "tent" they setup for a slumber party.

    I know those are odd use cases, but real ones in our house.

    I have a Slingbox as well, but I'll use the DTV iPad app first if it is there. Less latency and having to play around with the Slingbox. Plus, when using the Slingbox you are occupying that tv which drives my wife crazy. At least for the scenarios I mentioned in the previous post. If I'm on the road and want to watch a game on Slingbox and I change the channel remotely, I get a text about 10 seconds later saying she is unplugging the "slingblade" as she likes to call it. Love that woman. :lol:

    Some people call it a sling blade.

    Well, at least one does.
