    Wait you can't watch directv on the iPhone app can you? At least it doesn't seem to be an option in the official app. I have 61 app updates to install and DTV isn't one either.

    Just upgraded to 5.1.1 on iPhone today.

    Really? Lots of carriers with their pants down then.

    Dish is the best but they bought sling box and you can do the same. Buy a sling box and watch your dvr anywheres

    Comcast, TW, Cablevision, Dish, Brighthouse, Verizon, AT&T, etc, all have much better streaming services than DirecTV, who's streaming is only in beta, and has almost no content. It's hardly what they portray in the DirecTV Everywhere commercials. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul_GaMiEzO8

    Okay. Dead wrong. I have Verizon (Fios) and the ONLY thing you can stream is PURCHASED movies (and not all of them are available). The folks on Fios forums are asking where the content is. They do have agreements for HBO GO, etc, but you have to go to each individual channel for those.

    Now, should I take your word on the others?

    It's still better than DirecTV, as are the others.

    http://9to5mac.com/2012/01/12/verizon-finally-launching-live-tv-streaming-app-to-ipad-in-2012/

    What can DirecTV customers stream on their Xboxes?

    I realize that D*'s marketing department doesn't "always" describe things the way they REALLY are but anyway.....

    I find this new feature pretty cool. I'm able to watch D* programming from a variety of channels I subscribe to on my droid phone, on my tablet, and on my laptops/netbooks. I could also watch PPV programming on those platforms if I wanted to (which I don't).

    AND.....D* isn't charging me anything extra for the service.

    I'm finding D*'s droid app to be more and more useful. I use it to search programming and schedule recordings since it allows me to choose which DVR I want the recording on (without having to run up and down the stairs to do it manually).

    You're still stuck with Dish Network at the end of the day, so DirecTV customers are still better off by a long shot.

    That would be cool if DirecTV made an RVU client for xbox. That way you could use an xbox as a receiver in a kids room or something without purchasing an additional receiver.

    HOWEVER, IF that would ever happen, I bet you would still have to pay a mirroring fee like $6 or so per month to use it! So that negates that... might as well get a receiver rather than having a hot xbox running 24/7 with its fan's blaring.

    Neat idea though, not sure how practical.

    If DirecTV doesn't offer it, it's not needed by anyone. Got it.

    Meanwhile, in the non fanboy world...

    DirecTV is way behind in the streaming technology world. Even streaming from their own boxes is horrendous, with absurd wait times for programs to buffer enough to actually watch them.

    It does currently and has been working since the last update, a few months ago.
