So, where can I get a comprehensive list of those networks who have live feeds available for streaming as opposed to those networks who have on demand content only?

Trying to watch Directv Everywhere on my computer and end up in endless loop of request to install directv movie player. Settings are correct yet I hit resume watching and it demands to install the player again...and again...and again.

Hmmmm. You get some TV everywhere (there is WiFi or other i connection); more TV at home, but not all TV anywhere. (In fact, hardly anyone gets all TV anywhere!)

Keep dreaming. You've left the walled garden. Content providers won't allow it.


Simply put, I "own" it.
Thanks,

I'm not sure what content providers are thinking these days as 95% of people don't have data plans with enough overhead to watch even a couple episodes of "TV Anywhere" and even if they do, the cellular networks themselves are so overburdened they'd spend most of the time waiting for things to buffer.

In the end, this is worthless to me personally. The reason I have satellite in the first place is because I live in a rural area without access to cable, fiber, etc. I'm not going to start paying hundreds of dollars a month in overage fees so I can watch poorly rendered video on a 4 inch screen.

I wish they'd put more of their resources to making what we have work better.


On a side note: AT&T and Verizon must break out the champagne every time a content provider comes up with another bandwidth intensive scheme such as this that is sure to line their pockets with another round of consumer bill shock.

this DirecTV "Everywhere" is a joke. What they need is a Slingbox type of app where you can remotely control your DVR and watch everything on it or Live TV through it everywhere as if you were sitting at home in front of your TV. Now THAT would truly be DirecTV "EVERYWHERE" I don't know if patents or whatever are preventing DirecTV from doing this or they simply don't want or care to invest into this type of product, but what they currently call DirecTV everywhere, is a joke compared to that. This thing is just misleading marketing to people that don't know any better.

Diff folks, diff strokes....Some absolutely have to have it, and want more. Others are "meh." I'm in between; nice to have, but fairly little use. I prefer nomad, so I don't need no stinkin' internet when I travel.

I don't see ESPN, broadcast networks, or PBS on the list. Starz is the only premium movie channel listed. "A little TV everywhere, some TV elsewhere at home" would be a better description.

Disney isn't allowing providers to get Watch ESPN seperately, DirecTV won't be able to get it until the contract is up for renewal. And even then, ESPN doesn't have the rights to stream everything online because of existing deals some of the leagues made for mobile rights.

Local broadcast stations are even more complicated since the majority of the affiliates are not owned by the network and only have the rights to their programming locally. It would take involvement from each affiliate as well as the networks themselves, as well as installing infrastructure to encode the streams at each receive facility since all the locals outside of the Big 4 in NYC and LA are spotbeamed.

You can get HBO, Showtime and Cinemax content via their own apps as well as under the on demand selection on DirecTV's app.

I was able to watch an on demand program from the new channels on my iPad over 3G yesterday but not today on my iPhone. My iPad is Verizon and my iPhone is AT&T. That may have something to do with it.

However, the iPhone told me I needed to be on wifi, not on my home network.FWIW, I cannot watch Live TV on Shorts, beIN, Audience, AXS or Sony on my iPhone over 3G either. I am sure that is AT&T doing it.

Yup. That was it. Thanks.

Back to point....the app does give you TV anywhere there is a network. Just not much live streaming outside your house.

The BS of DirecTV & Apple --- Sorry this doesnt support on Jailbroken devices must be fixed.


Works fine on my iPhone. If you weren't satisfied with how Apple does their devices, why didn't you go with Android from the start?

I think it is rather stupid to break the standard functionality (and indeed, DRM) and then expect that companies like DirecTV support phones that have been hacked, cracked and changed by 3d party software.
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

I am the Stig.

Actually, it's rather stupid that there is DRM in the first place because all it does ruin the customer experience. Meanwhile almost every single television show in existence can be found in full HD, minus commercials on the internet. Sometimes before they even air locally!

DRM does nothing to stop or slow piracy. It's just a nuisance that gives content providers a false sense of achieving something, anything, when it comes to content theft.

Anyway, I have a HP touchpad, running cyanogen 10 (jellybean) and I have no DRM issues. The DirecTV app works fine (even though it is basically worthless.)

I thought I skimmed across a news article a while ago that T-Mobile will (finally) begin selling the iPhone. So shouldn't the need for 'jailbreaking" soon be gone anyhow?

Yes, but terms of the warranty dictate it isn't altered and they have every right to make sure the apps function only on those devices that haven't been changed.

For obvious reasons...imagine training a customer service force to not only be able to answer questions about how the product is supposed to work, but also how people have modified it and any millions of permutations that can take.

I would disagree with this. For many people DRM does stop those types of things. The more technologically savvy obviously get creative, but DRM is in place not because of DISH, or DIRECTV or TWC, it's in place from the content providers as they want to protect their investments. Creating content isn't free, unfortunately all too many people in this country think it is or should be free as if actors, production folks, editors, producers, etc, don't exist in the process. (By the way, not saying you feel this way, but I've heard people make this argument that everything should be free...at that point I ask when they are going to start working for free and that tends to stop the insanity. :) )
