    No, there's plans to place recordings on another device (i.e. laptop) - search for NOMAD, but don't think there's plans for live streaming. You can get a slingbox for that.

    Actually I believe one of the features NOMAD is planing is to also stream to mobile devices too.

    As I remember this device would be something that would do both what a Sling & PVR do, but "all in one".

    I've had slingboxes running on my DirecTV DVRs for years, long before Dish bought them and incorporated Sling technology into Dish equipment.

    Well, if Directv works with Morega to develop Nomad as some people have suggested then one of the things Morega does is Netstreaming so it seems logical that at some point in time Nomad would include Streaming Capabilities like Slingbox which I also have had for years now and have it on my Droid also.
