    Nomad is not meant to be a streaming product. It's not designed or marketed to stream. It's making content portable and there is a difference between that. Nomad is not designed for spur of the moment "oh I want to watch something on my phone or laptop from home". If this is what you expect or want then the nomad will not make you happy. If you want the ability to watch programs on the go that you will plan out in advance. I can think that most people could do 4-5 movies a night easily and 10-12 shows while they sleep. However in the world of instant gratification this is not meant to be the end all be all device.

    Perhaps the correct thread would help.

    when you are moving media over telecommunications i call it steaming and that is what you are doing there is nothing portable the shows transfer to the nomad and the nomad stays at your home you dont take it with you to access it you go through the nomad app from your iphone or computer software so that to me is streaming and im just saying there are better ways to do it

    It's very hard to comprehend what you write, with no caps, no sentence structure. I'd like to understand what you write!

    Well I'll just be perfectly honest, nobody cares what your definition of streaming is. It's a very well-defined term, you can't just decide you want to redefine it and expect anyone to follow you.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I'm closing this thread. It is my hope that when nomad does launch, that we can have an honest discussion of its merits without commenting on our fellow posters.
