The question would be why now all of a sudden are you seeing an issue? The widevine plug in has been required for all *non* DVR content, such as hbo, sho, starz, **AS delivered ** through DishOnline for over 3 months.And not getting an error, it's just Fedora can't do anything with the widevine plugin.
well ... I don't think it was dish per say that "wanted" it... but that HBO and other media content providers wanted some additional form of content protection encryption, or content kill switch.I wonder why Dish has to add widevine to the equation when hbogo and the others don't find it necessary?

I figured ... HBO, Sho, Starz .. all wanted some additional assurance that the content they provide through DishOnline would not be abused ... and that they've probably already some relation with Widevine, and that perhaps that became the deal.Interesting that google owns them. They are usually pretty Linux friendly. Had the same problem on a fresh install of lubuntu, so there's that.
I'll wait and see what happens.
I still don't understand how widevine benefits any party here, but anyway, unsolved and moving on.
