    DIRECTV NOW Launching in November!

    I had been following DirecTV Now on other forums, but I just ran across this. Anyway, my questions are: -Will this work away from a subscribers home network? -Will there likely be special software to download on a computer or is is possible that it will simply be a website that you log into?

    Android Specifications For SlingBox With DISH Network 722k

    Thank you very much for the reply. Yes, that is a good reminder about the home internet. I have DSL because I can't get cable where I live, so that very well might be the biggest limiting factor of all! Most of the time it is pretty good. Sometimes I listen to TV audio on my drive to work...

    Android Specifications For SlingBox With DISH Network 722k

    I have both a Sling Adapter and a Sling PRO-HD connected to my DISH Network 722k receiver. Sling works okay on my Garminfone, but it can be slow on start up and slow to respond. My phone currently is a Garminfone, which is on T-Mobile, and is only capable of 3G. I am considering a new...

    Portable DTVs

    Does anybody make a decent portable DTV currently? Maybe something along the lines of a 5 inch or 7 inch? I have seen a few here and there, but I have been sort of underwhelmed by what I have seen.

    Sling Player Mobile I also bought a Sling Adapter a while after they first became available. I have noticed that it can have issues, but I still like having it with my DISH 722k. One of my issues if I use it very much is I only have 2 GB of data through T-Mobile. It doesn't take long with...

    I will give this a try, too. My issue is that the shared computer I want to try this on doesn't have the most current Adobe Flash Player and since I can't install it on a computer that isn't mine, I need to be able to do this via USB Flash Drive.
