It's a staggered release. Not every subscriber will get it today. Don't feel bad if you don't have it yet... I don't either.

Is it the same that's been available with TBS, CNN, TNT etc or a new service?
I'm just getting linked to the channel sites like it's been for months. The movie Win Win is the first advertised movie and goes to the MaxGO site.

Is this it?

I don't have HBO or Cinemax right now, but there are PPVs and Audience Network shows and Starz/Encore selections that play on DIRECTV's player.

shouldn't be....It took awhile to find a free tv show that was available but Boardwalk Empire(long as you have HBO) played on DIRECTV's website just fine...

Are local channels available? I assume not. So it's still "Some of DirecTV Everywhere and the Rest Nowhere" :D

Doesn't look like it can do RSN. So I probably never use it.

Nice job someone did working on the SolidSignal Blog as they got it linked as source to this on Engadget!! Good job ;)

Also the article on engadget states DIRECTV told them its still in Beta(which is what it says on the page anyway) and that its still not "fully" functional...so maybe more channels and such will be offered sooner down the road.

I must not be in the first 'stagger' either. I don't see anything obviously new on the web site. I assume it will be OBVIOUS, right? Any idea what the time frame for full roll out is?

I "have" it, but it requires a proprietary OS and won't run on Linux, so I guess I don't actually "have" it.

I just tried watching "Game of Thrones" and playback failed giving reason code 1100 (streaming unavailable at this time). It was the first time I've tried it and the player was trying to register my account before it gave me that error code.

Using an '09 Macbook Pro running OSX 10.7.3.

Just like most of the on-line stuff from D*...my PC is too old :lol:.

I installed the player and can receive programming but it's all jerky. I'll have to try my newer laptop, it usually does fine with this kinda stuff.
