    OTA - DVR : Amazon Recast vs AirTV Anywhere

    I just tested SlingTV on my Sony XBR-900E (2017?) with AndroidTV and the AirTV local channels show up on it just fine.

    OTA - DVR : Amazon Recast vs AirTV Anywhere

    I’ve got both these boxes and this is not meant as an all inclusive review, just some comparisons. On both boxes there is no charge for the Guide info. Amazon Recast: This works quite well but is limited to working with Amazon FireTV products. There is an app for iOS and Android devices but...

    HBO Max Offer (and a big question)

    These days the only streaming device that has apps for all the services is the AppleTV. All the rest are missing something without sideloading, and in the case of Roku even that isn’t doable.

    HBO Max Offer (and a big question)

    Yeah, me too. But the tile doesn’t say “HBO Max”, just HBO.

    AT&T exploring Deal to sell off DIRECTV.

    Maybe so, maybe not. It is all about the contracts. I can see no reason a contract couldn’t be made to allow recording of a stream. Not easy to accomplish but certainly not impossible.

    AT&T exploring Deal to sell off DIRECTV.

    Mediacom started their Docsis 3.1 in 2016 and I found plenty of articles from local news sources about their gigabit service. So you made the claim they don’t have it everywhere they are, so prove it.

    DirecTV ditches cheapest plan for new subscribers

    I just read another article that claims Sinclair is buying the AT&T RSNs that AT&T has been trying to peddle for quite some time. Makes me wonder if that isn’t part of whatever deal was struck.

    AT&T explores Direct TV sale again

    What magic does ATSC 3.0 do about distance from a broadcast station? Either you or I is misunderstanding what ATSC 3.0 brings to the table, but methinks you are incorrect. :)

    AT&T TV

    I don’t hate them, but it would be nice if the voice interfaces worked the same on all the apps officially supported on a device. Notably missing all too often is trick play commands. Works in some apps, doesn’t in others. And that seems to hold true regardless which streaming box you use.

    AT&T explores Direct TV sale again

    I did some searching about their growth and the only articles I could find were with statements from Orby itself. Since it is a private company there doesn’t seem to be anyone really looking at them from outside the company.

    AT&T exploring Deal to sell off DIRECTV.

    Yep, the losses weren’t what all the doom and gloom types wanted us all to believe. First, HBO. Why in the world would anyone want just HBO when HBO Max has more and cost the same? I suppose those with no or poor internet access would. And sports? Well that’s mostly RSNs as the national sports...

    Poll: Fire Stick or Roku?

    The 10 second skip is usually in all the Live Streaming apps, not so much for VOD stuff.

    Poll: Fire Stick or Roku?

    The AppleTV is an excellent choice and hopefully you’ll like the universal remote with it. I always had issues with FireTV sticks and I always thought it was poor WiFi performance on them. Now I have a 2nd Gen FireTV Cube and it has worked flawlessly both wired and WiFi. I like its remote a...

    AT&T TV

    And just like using any other 3rd party remote with a device, no voice use at all!

    AT&T TV

    Yes, currently AppleTV is the only box out there that has apps for all streaming services officially, though FireTV also has all of them if you count sideloading of Peacock and HBO Max. I’ve got both an AppleTV4K and a FireTV Cube (2nd gen). I would normally prefer the AppleTV over the FireTV...
