Is this working on iPhone, too? It tries to find my receiver.


Tried on my iPod Touch - also tries to find my receiver. Digging through the support entries to "What do I need to watch movies and shows instantly on my laptop, tablet, or phone?" it says under Cell Phones:

"Coming soon to iPhone, iPod Touch running iOS 4.2+ and later (iOS5 us recommended for best results)."

My top 5 wishlist: 1) Free MRV HR to HR 2) Fix Channels I Receive so that it is accurate 3) > 50 SeriesLink 4) Usage of both internal and external drives concurrently 5) Support for other video providers as DoD (i.e. Hulu, CBS)

Can these added channels be viewed online on a pc? Or are they available only on iPad right now? Thanks.


You can access the file system on a PC. I don't think streaming is allowed unless it is a controlled ecosystem. Hence unjailbroken iPhones / iPads.

DIYHD Live is showing the wrong channel. The feed on my iPhone is showing CNN.

Update: Now DIYHD is showing the correct program.

You have to add the channels in your app and make them visible.

Click on the live TV streaming icon (looks like a pencil). That will pull up a list of channels that are streamable....go to the bottom and make sure to add the channels that were just launched.


I'm using an HTC Inspire. I must be missing something. I don't see an icon that looks like a pencil. The only subscribed networks available are Audience and SMC.

Is there any other company that can stream live TV content outside the home (other than a Slingbox)? Or is D* the only one for now?


I guess it uses the Sling technology, but I can stream any channel live that I get via satelitte or OTA via my Dish 722K with Sling adapter.

beIN
AXS TV (Formerly HD NET)
Shorts
Sony Movie Channel


I don''t see these new channels as being available on my Android phone.....anything "special" I need to be doing. I currently see Audience, Cinemax, Encore, HBO, Sony, and Starz.

The DirecTV Everywhere thing works great on my droid phone, sure wish it would on my tablet.

What channels are currently available for live streaming outside your home network? I only see the Audience Network.

Edited by Birdieman30, 06 October 2012 - 09:12 PM.

DirecTv, you keep using this word "Everywhere."
I do not think it means what you think it means.

This is completely different, its streaming from the Internet, so you are not using or tying up your DVR at home, and you don't have to rely on a good upload speed on your home network, which if you are like me, don't shave a very good one...

Te down side is you don't get every channel outside your home with DirecTV, at least not yet.

Did you add the channels to your live streaming channel lists?

If so, I guess it's a process to get everything to work on all devices, I am sure if it works on one, it will eventually work on all.

Choose the little pencil on the top right of the live channel streaming widget. Then scroll down, and add the channels, they are not on by default.

Does this include the iPhone app? I can't seem to get Live TV to work outside of my home wifi for the channels that are supposed to be available 'out of home'... and I don't really want to take my iPad to work.

I was able to get live streaming at home on my iPod Touch, but nothing outside of my home. It apparently needs to validate access with my receiver.

Available only on iPad for full functionality. I believe iPhone has in home streaming, but not out of home yet. Android devices coming in a few months if I recall.

Glad they added additional channels.
With fios you can watch esp channels thru an app called "watch espn" . Wish D* would get an agreement with espn.


Yeah but if you only have their FIOS Internet you cannot watch anything through that app!

Is this being worked on for an upcoming update? You don't happen to have an ETA, do you? The iPhone 5 app also needs support for the 16:9 resolution. :)

Can we expect additional ON THE GO channels on iOS in the near future? I noticed that DIRECTV Everywhere got quite a few additional networks. :)
