I have both an ipad 2 and an 8" LG Android tablet. 1. Lots of channels you can select and watch with no problem. Choose Watch on ipad / tablet at the top of the app screen, touch the Live TV and touch the program from the Guide. These have the Wi-Fi symbol and the plus sign next to the channel number. 2. Others are not available at all. Those are easily distinguished by the lack of the Wi-Fi symbol. to the right of the channel number. 3. Then there are channels that have the Wi-Fi symbol but are lacking the plus sign next to it. These only play if your system / DVR is connected to the internet and the tablet is on the same network. Weird . 4. If I choose CNBC, channel 355, and play it it is fine until a commercial break comes up. Then you get a custom screen that says they are on commercial break and back soon. No sound either. If I do the same thing on the Bloomberg channel 353 it looks just like TV, commercials and all. Edit: CNBC started showing commercials today 8-3-2016. It is just strange.
