    You're right.

    At the same time, worrying about Flash on Macs is a non-starter; they handle Flash fine. It's the iDevices that block Flash, so perhaps someone was confused by conflating the devices with the computers.

    I don't think you need to be worried about Flash.

    I don't think anyone needs to worry about flash on anything anymore, while its now dead on mobile devices, I expect it to be dead everywhere in the next couple years. No one is going to want to code twice when there is no advantage to doing so. If anything, there are disadvantages.

    We've got to make sure that 3000+ devices have a new enough version of flash on them for a live streaming thing THIS Friday......there are plenty of idiots out there still writing and expecting flash to run.

    Yes, I am sure it will come to pass. Absolutely no take on a date, however.

    I am still wondering what ccarncross was referring to. Please, CC?

    Is the present thinking that this will be a 'free' service for Direvtv subscribers? Also, did satracer give any idea on timing?

    No, sorry - that's all SatRacer posted on this (that I saw).

    I don't know how DIRECTV Everywhere will work in terms of fees or timing.

    I don't either, but I doubt they would have mentioned it if it was 6 months away.

    • adultswim.com/tveverywhere

    This seems like a competitor to Nomad. So of course they will charge for it, even though you look at something like HBO Go, it's more about retaining subscribers rather than nickel-and-diming them for every little thing.

    NOMAD and DirecTVEverywhere are two different beasts.

    NOMAD allows for TRANSFERRING content from a DVR to a mobile devices for viewing outside the home even when there is no Internet connection or a poor connection available (airplane, roadtrip, business class hotel)

    TVEverywhere is about STREAMING content outside the house from servers in the cloud
    (Direct App of iPad STREAMS inside the house from servers on the cloud)

    SLING BOX is about STREAMING content from inside the house to a mobile device


    Point being is NOMAD transfers everything else streams. Considering DAFI is free and the current TVEverywhere websites DirecTV supports are free, I think DirecTVEverywhere will be free.

    They're different ways to implement the same feature, i.e. "place-shift" the D* content that you're already paying for to other devices, which may or may not be more portable.

    We already have most of those and they are free, so I doubt it.

    DIRECTV Everywhere Will be a FREE service. All you need is a internet device like a pc tablet laptop. It will be a streaming service like netflix but be directv's on demand content. If you can get the channel/show on directv you can get it on there DIRECTV Everywhere. tho when it first launches will not have full library since it takes a long time to convert each video to streaming, and atm there is over 7000 in the library and its always getting larger.


    And How i know this, I am CSR at directv and we just took a little test about it. If you read the news letter we send with the bill you can learn alot more. the newsletter shows only free new stufff comming to directv. like the DIRECTV Everywhere and free weekends of prem channels

    Holy Cow! That's pretty straight forward! Do you know the resolution of the to-come video streams converted for small screens?

    WHEN will it be available? Let's hope it won't be something like Nomad, talked about for over a year.

    Will there be an iPad app?
