I got an email today from Directv and it asked for my feedback, when I clicked on the link I was sent to a site to take a survey.

The survey asked questions about my equipment, my choice of smartphone and viewing habits. This is where is got interesting, the next group of questions were for something called Nomad, the ability to watch my recorded dvr content anywhere.

You could load a show onto your computer or phone and take it with you, watch it on an airplane. You could also stream content over a broadband connection and watch it on your phone or computer.

This sounds like it would be awesome!! Hopefully it doesn't take too long to implement.

This would be great, but one question. How much would this cost per month? If it's only a couple of bucks fine, but $10+ would be to much, but like everyone I would prefer free.

That sounds pretty cool! That would come in really handy while traveling.

I hope you answered, "hell yeah I want that!" :D

There were questions addressing this too, they ranged from high up front costs and very low monthly fees to no upfront costs to high monthly fees.

Yeah, it sounds like a great product. I think this may address the problem of only having recordings on your dvr, the recordings must now be tied to your account instead of the receiver.

This may make a lot of people happy.

I got the same survey! I am psyched, this sounds like a very kewl addition to DirecTV's line up. I had a hard time with the dollar amounts being surveyed though.

Yeah, me too. I actually answered no to all of the pricing questions.

I think I deleted that survey. I get a lot of them and I never answer...you'd think they would stop sending them to me. :grin:

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

Nomad has so many meaning over the years .. Is this "To Go" for all shows? Could be interesting. Thanks for the info scottandregan.

The return of the ill-fated DIRECTV2Go. Hopefully they pick the right handhelds this time.

I'm actually much more interested in this possibility if one indeed has the option of MOVING content over to an external device (iPhone, Droid, iPad, Netbook) versus streaming the content over the internet... only if it's free though....

If indeed this causes DirecTV to tie recordings to one's account instead of to one's specific receiver, I'll be EXTREMELY happy! :)

The Slingbox lets me stream to any computer or my iPhone. A capture card lets me take any DVR content and convert it to DVD or MPEG4 to put on portable devices. But to have all this incorporated into the DVD software would be fantastic. Send me the survey:)

This makes sense considering Mike White has commented in interviews about not just watching TV when you want...but WHERE you want

Not necessarily. I have a slingbox I used on Comcast. The upload wasn't that much and I came nowhere near any caps.
