Any details on this other than "soon"?
No date yet but here is some more info from DirecTV (and even more at the link at the bottom):
from DirecTV Everywhere
Thanks for the link. I still can't figure out "how" DIRECTV everywhere will work though. Streaming from the in-home receivers? Streaming from a library of content on DIRECTV servers? No streaming, but copying instead?
Also ... what's the cost? It would be nice if it was free, but I'll set my expectations low and hope for a pleasant surprise...
It will be a web interface you login with your DIRECTV credentials.
It sounds like they are going to have the iPad app on the pc, since the iPad app will do all this today, between all the streaming channels, and that you can use hbo go, nomad, etc... Too.
The iPad app won't do it all...
This sounds like you will be able to use it anywhere... the iPad only allows streaming in the home.
Hopefully, the app will be updated with this ability at the same time...
This. The iPad app does not do everything this is stating. Im wondering how similar this going to be to Sling, if at all?
I think Shades has it right.
I doubt it's anything like Sling... my bet is streaming from DirecTV's servers just like the iPad app now, but you'll have the ability to do it EVERYWHERE instead of just in your own home.
You mean for pc access? That'd be nice since it would also work on a Mac that way.
Only if it works with one of the Mac specific browsers...Safari is not the best for compatibility of websites...Safari mobile even less so...
Can't you use Chrome and get the IE tab plugin? However I'm willing to bet that given the nature of the web interface Mac users should be ok with this.
Actually, the iPad app does do all that is listed except that it is currently limited to within your home and on your wifi network for much of it (some can be done outside, like scheduling). All they need to do is open it up to outside the home.
Which I'm guessing can open up a whole new set of problems. Right now everything is locked down to a single subnet, I'd guess for a very good reason having to do with DRM/piracy etc...
Hopefully they will support non-Apple mobile devices too!
i'm guessing it will be like netflix. and you will have to pay a monthly fee.
I don't understand this. I use all the same browsers on my Macs (Firefox, Chrome, Opera) as I did on PCs and haven't come across a streaming website that doesn't work in 4+ years.
Maybe he's concerned it'll be Flash-based! (Hence not work on iPhones or iPads)....?
If it uses Flash your SOL...
I would say that would be a huge setback then. Isn't Adobe even moving away from Flash? I thought I read that somewhere.
