Thanks, so with Nomad I have a program on my receiver that has been recorded, while I am at home I would download it to my iPad and then be able to view it anywhere(plane,train,automobile), correct ?
I paid list price.
nomad is download of video, sling is streaming video. If you have no network or slow network, you don't want to stream. To download, you must be on your home network.
There is also an iPad client that streams, but not all channels. If you prefer streaming, Sling is more flexible. It does put you at risk for your ISP upload cap. Sling is also open to any video input, not just DTV.
nomad is DTV only.
FWIW, I have both Sling and nomad. Since I installed nomad, I've not used the Sling box.
How large are the files(30,60 minute program) I am downloading to the pad ? Is deleting easy ?
Can I fast forward,pause etc ?
Am I missing anything else ?
