Unless you've developed an app, similar to the D* app that involves streaming content excluded by an IF statement, and had that app work without issue in same or similar fashion to the D* app, I'm going to ignore you declaration that it is "simple". I don't need you to remind me of this. When my iPad was jailbroken I had all three. It's not relevant to the D* app. Nobody is disputing that video streaming works on jailbroken iPads. That's where the discussion ends because D* doesn't allow it. Do you need me to remind you about the encryption that those three apps employ? I didn't think you did, I just wanted to check. And again, it's not relevant that HBO Go, MAX Go and Netflix have encryption. D* doesn't at this point and that's all that really matters. Can they add encryption? Yes. Will they add encryption? I'd say they will. Will they allow jailbroken iPads once they do? Maybe. Maybe not. Like you yourself said, you can't have your cake and eat it too. You want a jailbroken iPad, and you have it.
