Re: iPhone & Android tablet users get Bright House TV App Joy!

1% of the comments are about the app not loading and the other 99% are about the app only working on the "home network" as far as I remember dish network or directv has the ability to watch their tv shows anywhere,,im not sure if its one of them or both of them,,but as usual brighthouse and twc don't allow it,,,go figure....

I am sure most people would love it to be the app that they could take away from home. However currently there is no such app because the content providers, not the app makers, want the cable companies license to stay for home broadcasting only. Every instance of the station being taken outside of the home has been handled per station and by that stations own app.

Belive you me, the day, the hour that the stations agree to a new contract that allow the cable companies to provide a feed to its customers outside the home, a tiny switch (filter deleted I should say) is all that needs to be thrown for the app to go global.

Oh we are ready and hopeful for that day And its more of an update to each App but still an easy thing relatively speaking...there will still be some entitlement issues to work out so people can't cheat and share with their neighbor who doesn't have cable but that's all in the details.

Bernie it will take time I won't lie and there is probably some frustrating moments before we get there. I really need you guys to trust me when I say we're on the same page but others we have to make happy (content owners) not so much but times are changing and we will get there.

I have an HP Touchpad with CM9 alpha 2 ICS installed. I successfully installed the application,.but I cannot find a way to disable the root status required to put the new operating system on the tablet. This situation is very disappointing, as the application says it cannot run on a rooted device.

The folks who helped you root the device should be able to help you with this...obviously I can't...sorry.

You could try downloading OTA Rootkeeper. It can temporarily disable the root while you use the app.

Yea, I belive it just looks to see if you have super user status, so find a way to toggle that and you should be ok.

Upgraded my phone today to HTCs evo 3d (running ICS), app works great on it.

And your device is not rooted right? If so please provide us with a screenshot of your phone running the App so we can add it to the list.

No root. Quick and dirty

By the way neither my ipod or phone have the dancing lines at the top of channel 13 anymore.

When does this happen Tim? Is it all the time, part of the time, when you do a specific thing? Need more data...

every time.. I just got my phone a few days ago and have tried it 10+ times and never gotten it to work. I tried my wifes phone too to see if it was the phone and hers is doing the same thing.

All I did was download the app, I put my login info and the wheel starts rolling like its loading then it pops up with that error and then you click ok and the wheel continues to roll. After a few minutes it stops and just sits on a black screen.
