Ugh. It would be nice if they did allow it to stream outside the home like the Sling. That is one thing DISH has a good market over. I think some of the cable companies are even starting to look at streaming outside the home as well.Click here if you have benefited from satelliteguys.us

The in home streaming works really well.. I downloaded the update and played with it this morning..
For out of home, you still have to download the show to whichever device your using (iPhone, etc...)

Neutron - the main benefit of the Nomad is it converts video from the HD DVR to the storage in the Nomad, then it lets you download to an iPhone etc and watch anywhere. Key benefit being no cellular data usage and able to use it anywhere, such as an airplane.
I'm sure if DirecTV wanted to do it they could make a place-shifting streaming solution, whether via Nomad or something else. Directv seems to be much more focussed on keeping content companies pleased, the exact opposite stance of Dish, who seems to enjoy lawsuits with any company they do business with.

I'm thinking of getting a Nomad but was told that I can only transfer content from premium channels such as HBO and Showtime once and that it would be deleted from my DVR. Is this true? If so I can't see the value in the Nomad.
