I noticed a press release about "Verizon to Present on TV Everywhere" »www.marketwatch.com/story/verizo···12-05-22
""Verizon is committed to streaming high-quality video content for our FiOS customers - anytime, anywhere, on an array of connectable devices - allowing each to enjoy a borderless entertainment experience whenever and wherever they wish," Krishnaswamy said. "

So where is the iPad streaming application? I wanted to watch the NHL playoff last night but the wife wanted to watch DWTS finale! Guess who won? My son was watching a NBA game on our other TV!
So on this thread they say no time soon and in the press they say soon????

Given VZ's definition of "soon", those two statements aren't mutually exclusive.

I'm about to get a tablet and reading this thread maybe a slingbox too. Im on the fence with the new ipad or a transformer prime, maybe a sony s. So the sling box will work with either platform?

Yep. There are apps for both Android and Apple.

I had a transformer prime before I returned it (hardware issues), but I can say that the Slingbox app work very well on both the prime and the iPad.

However, I want to warn that the other video streaming apps are generally not as good on Android. Especially the WatchESPN app, it's unusable on Android.

I have a Nook Tablet and run Android CM7 on it. The ESPN app works great, as do other streaming apps like HBOGo, Youtube, etc.

Verizon Wireless made 26 of its live FiOS TV channels available for online streaming on the Xbox 360. In a new report, GigaOM had the chance to sit down and talk to a Verizon representative at CES 2012, who said a similar app would be available for the iPad sometime this year. Verizon originally announced the streaming app about a year ago and a half ago, but the company held back from releasing it. Verizon accredits the hesistance to making sure networks have the same reliability as IPTV services so streams do not crash.

Verizon also rolled out a similar app to Samsung’s connected Blu-Ray players and televisions today. The iPad app will presumably be available free to those who subscribe to Verizon’s FiOS TV service. We look forward to seeing the app land sometime later this year. Obviously, this will only be available for paying FiOS customers.

This was in January???????????

Nice - another announcement with Disney now launching a host of apps for iOS, but FIOS customers can't access 99% of the content.

And the FIOS live TV app? Vaporware, touted long ago, hinted at by FIOS Joe and 'in testing' for release any day now.....

The FNC iOS app added live video from FNC and FBN a couple of weeks ago and Verizon is not offering access yet.

I just noticed that the FiOS Media Manager app on my iPhone got an update today that now allows live streaming of content.

This may be a step in the right direction to providing a full TV streaming app??

Count yourself as lucky if you're getting the Media Manager app working. I've got fatal errors popping up on startup in all three of our installs - 1 in Win7, 1 in Lion and 1 in Tiger. The two OSX installs worked VERY briefly, the Win7 install I don't think EVER worked. I still don't understand why Verizon's implementation of streaming Youtube to a STB requires a PC/Mac client on the LAN, but that's another story.

[This thread was on Page 3. It is too important to get lost]

What is taking them so long? I was at my brothers (Optimum) and used the app on my iPad. Worked really well. I could see many uses for it at home. I only have two TVs, 1 DVR, 1 STB and would be nice to be able to watch live TV in the kitchen when eating, or on the porch at night. Come on Verizon, don't let me think about switching to Optimum, please.....

Just found an article about the app that was released August 18th 2010!. It said the app is ready to go. It's other departments holding it up. How come TW and Cablevision were able to get okays from the broadcasters and not Verizon?

Here's the link to the article that will be TWO YEARS OLD tomorrow (the article):
