    Anyone know why they won't allow OOH streaming on ios via cellular connections but works with wifi? :eek: I hope this won't be the case for Android when it's released.

    Because they didn't meet Apple's specifications for the available bitrates over cellular. Apple will not approve any app these days that streams over cellular without passing several guidelines. So it required an update to the stream (and probably the iOS app as well). However, it really should not of taken this long.

    So you're saying that if streaming ever becomes a reality for Android users, this won't be a problem?

    I don't see any reason why not. I wouldn't be surprised if the stream side has already been patched in the latest update. But it will likely require client updates for iOS to take advantage. Even without the restrictions on Android, the stream really needs lots of work to be able to stream in adverse conditions anyways. That is where Slingbox has the advantage because of their years of developing their app to work over poor connections (aka celluar).

    I'm pretty shocked this is still not out. I wonder what the hold up is?

    Almost the end of June and no updates. I guess this will be delayed until 2017

    Nobody expects any news until the "summer update", whenever that is...

    We're real close on the summer update... although I have no recent Android intel. Doesn't mean it's not happening soon, I just don't know its current status. I expect the summer update to hit later this week or next.

    I'm not holding my breath.

    But hopefully they correct the transfer rate issues.

    Nealis seems to think an Android announcement is coming rather soon.

    An announcement could be lots of things, for instance "We've decided never to support android." would be an announcement :-(.

    It says its not too far off and would seem that is regarding android streaming and not just the announcement.
