I agree. With DirecTV2PC, we can quickly 'record' any channel and play it on a PC or laptop within the home network.
We just need DirecTV2iPad. It solves a couple of problems and no legal issues. (or at least same issue with DirecTV2PC)
Fully agree. They've already set the expectation this can be only be used in the home anyway, so I don't see any reason why they can't do a DirecTV2iPad app that's fully integrated with the existing Ipad app.
I was excited to see the new version.
But after playing with it a little bit yesterday, I realized that the live streaming is not something I will make much use of.
I rarely watch anything in real time. Even sporting events, I mostly watch 30 or 60 minutes or more into the game, and 30Skip through commercials, timeouts, catcher's visits to the mound and icing calls.
The broadcasts I do watch live are mostly local news, and the local channels aren't streaming yet.
Don't get me wrong--I think this is a great addition to the growing supply of DirecTV features and toys. It's just not filling a useful role for me, at this point.
Now, add all the "channels I get" and all the recordings on my various Playlists, and the feature would be a gem.
There's always slingbox
, but again, DirecTV2iPad is what is needed.
