    Interesting.. But only at home, and only if you also have time warner cable..

    I think it should be noted that only 32 channels are going to start out with this, making me think that contracts really do explicitly say if you can and can't stream channels with cable or sat equipment....

    Agreed. When I saw that it only streams on the home network I thought that was kind of silly. They really need to open that up.

    I just read that their servers crashed due to demand so they had to cut the channels to 15. Not good.

    Looks like, as all cable companies do, they underestimated what they could support, and over promise, and then delivered a sub par offering...

    I can't believe they don;t just do it from their set top boxes. It would be so much simpler that way and they wouldn't have to worry about servers going down.
