Is Directv really going to have a directv everywhere like Time Warner and Dish? I have done the Max and HBO - Go programs, but I am actually more interested in sports programming. And our local news channels when traveling. I am hoping to get them off my Android Galaxy tablet and Android phone. Wife has Apple products but would switch if needed.

I am seriously thinking of just getting a slingbox Pro (Hope it works as advertised) if this is not going to happen sometime this year.

Any ideas, recommendations, thoughts? I am just ready to move forward instead of waiting for something that might not even come for years.

I don't have any firsthand information, unfortunately, but was recently told by someone here who I think is 'in the know' that it was coming very soon.

I have hope that at some point Android tablets will see some love.

I'm not in the know, I'm just saying.

I'm guessing by March 16 that HDSC was referring to the new ipad.

I think my post about looking for love and rewards was misunderstood ... I was looking for that love in the DIRECTV-to-Android streaming arena. Saying "it's coming [to me] on March 16" has no meaning.

I hope we are talking about Sling type of service. I know we can go grab a Sling box, but still waiting to see if Directv would integrate such service soon.

With the new Dish Hopper thing, they are catching up on the whole home viewing technology. I don't think Nomad is good enough to answer the Dish TV everywhere push.

we're not talking about Sling type features in the next version of the iPad app.

And judging from my brother's Dish setup with a Sling adapter, Dish is nowhere near catching up on whole home DVR. Nor Everywhere TV for that matter.

I'm no Dish expert, but he is. He'd rather have my whole home and iPad app D* service than the cobbled together Dish solution.

The Hopper was just released two days ago, I don't think your brother has it yet. Although one Hopper is still no match to my 4 HDDVRs networked together, but still a step in the right direction.

What I have been waiting for is the ability to operate my HDDVRs on the road using iPad or a smartphone. Will the next iPad app provide such capability?

Just hope you Android tablet is not rooted or you iPad is not JB. Because you will be disappointed. Or at leads until the FIX comes in!

I presume you mean more than just set up a recording from afar, which we can do now. What functions are you looking for?

Drew: You have over 12000 post.
HDSC: I have 23 post.

I would think that might clue you in I do not write regularly on these boards. In fact most of my communications here have been strictly asking questions. :confused:

I was not trying to give you meaning or love - PERIOD:nono2: But if you wish me to give you some advice - Here it is: Pick up a cheap IPAD that was traded in for the latest and greatest new IPAD! ;) Then when you and I both get LOVE for our android products, we will already be ahead of the game.:hurah:

But right now ----- We are -------------------------------------------

Looking for love in all the wrong places:):eek2:
