Not available now, but I don't see why not if Dish wanted.

Where would the movie that you download be stored without a hard drive.

It's not a streaming service. It needs the harddrive to be stored on.

Get a DVR.. Streaming devices need a hard drive/storage device.

Many of us already have external drives connected to our 211's with DVR functionality. No reason why BBMP shouldn't work with them.

I do think making the streaming portion of the service available for customer's with a 211 and an external hard drives is a fantastic idea. I will be more than happy to forward this suggestion on your behalf.

Why not get it working on the 922 before we start fantasizing about other devices?

'Soon' as in 2012? I work in a computer science department at one of the nations best engineering schools. I bet I could take a couple of students and have this done in a few days!

Streaming video only requires a small amount of memory for a buffer.

Au contraire. (Pardon my French.) It is a streaming service. But, they do it in a weird, non-standard way.

Many of us already have external drives connected to our 211's with DVR functionality. No reason why BBMP shouldn't work with them.
