    They support your Apple product, you chose to change it and now demand that they comply with your changes. :rolleyes:

    Agree...I don't get it either.

    When someone modifies their device - they should expect "issues". You break it, you own it. Common sense actually.

    simple.. dont buy apple devices if you dont like the way they make you use your device. There are other perfectly fine choices out there..

    now back on topic.. they updated the android app with audience streaming - awesome for the dan patrick show. My question - I can only stream it through the app, not a web browser on the desktop pc - anyone find the link for it from a web browser (if it even exists?)

    So, where can I get a comprehensive list of those networks who have live feeds available for streaming as opposed to those networks who have on demand content only?

    PA - Berks...
    Only seeing 5 channels available with the "On the Go" icon.
    AUDHD
    AXSTV
    SONYHD
    SHRTHD
    beINHD


    The rest, including some of the ones mentioned here say "Not Available - This channel is not available out of home.".

    TV Everywhere? Maybe TV Somewhere, but not everywhere. Good marketing spin!

    Trying to watch Directv Everywhere on my computer and end up in endless loop of request to install directv movie player. Settings are correct yet I hit resume watching and it demands to install the player again...and again...and again.

    Hmmmm. You get some TV everywhere (there is WiFi or other i connection); more TV at home, but not all TV anywhere. (In fact, hardly anyone gets all TV anywhere!)

    Very happy with this update.
    There was also an update to the DirecTV application for Android today which fixes the crash issue when playing live feeds on 4.2.

    I can now watch live programming on my Nexus 7.... :):):)

    I'm not sure what content providers are thinking these days as 95% of people don't have data plans with enough overhead to watch even a couple episodes of "TV Anywhere" and even if they do, the cellular networks themselves are so overburdened they'd spend most of the time waiting for things to buffer.

    In the end, this is worthless to me personally. The reason I have satellite in the first place is because I live in a rural area without access to cable, fiber, etc. I'm not going to start paying hundreds of dollars a month in overage fees so I can watch poorly rendered video on a 4 inch screen.

    I wish they'd put more of their resources to making what we have work better.


    On a side note: AT&T and Verizon must break out the champagne every time a content provider comes up with another bandwidth intensive scheme such as this that is sure to line their pockets with another round of consumer bill shock.

    this DirecTV "Everywhere" is a joke. What they need is a Slingbox type of app where you can remotely control your DVR and watch everything on it or Live TV through it everywhere as if you were sitting at home in front of your TV. Now THAT would truly be DirecTV "EVERYWHERE" I don't know if patents or whatever are preventing DirecTV from doing this or they simply don't want or care to invest into this type of product, but what they currently call DirecTV everywhere, is a joke compared to that. This thing is just misleading marketing to people that don't know any better.

    Winters,...
    Diff folks, diff strokes....Some absolutely have to have it, and want more. Others are "meh." I'm in between; nice to have, but fairly little use. I prefer nomad, so I don't need no stinkin' internet when I travel.

    I don't see ESPN, broadcast networks, or PBS on the list. Starz is the only premium movie channel listed. "A little TV everywhere, some TV elsewhere at home" would be a better description.

    Disney isn't allowing providers to get Watch ESPN seperately, DirecTV won't be able to get it until the contract is up for renewal. And even then, ESPN doesn't have the rights to stream everything online because of existing deals some of the leagues made for mobile rights.

    Local broadcast stations are even more complicated since the majority of the affiliates are not owned by the network and only have the rights to their programming locally. It would take involvement from each affiliate as well as the networks themselves, as well as installing infrastructure to encode the streams at each receive facility since all the locals outside of the Big 4 in NYC and LA are spotbeamed.

    You can get HBO, Showtime and Cinemax content via their own apps as well as under the on demand selection on DirecTV's app.

    I was able to watch an on demand program from the new channels on my iPad over 3G yesterday but not today on my iPhone. My iPad is Verizon and my iPhone is AT&T. That may have something to do with it.

    However, the iPhone told me I needed to be on wifi, not on my home network.FWIW, I cannot watch Live TV on Shorts, beIN, Audience, AXS or Sony on my iPhone over 3G either. I am sure that is AT&T doing it.
