Anyone know why they won't allow OOH streaming on ios via cellular connections but works with wifi? 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).

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

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.

I think we may as well just face it, we're not getting streaming on Android. Either something is happening behind the scenes (Like an exclusive deal with Apple that they're just not allowed to talk about), or they're just not interested in bringing it to us. I really feel that if they wanted us to have it, they've had PLENTY of time to get it done.

To be fair, Android streaming will not come with a TiVo OS update so what @tivodesign said makes sense. Until they deploy updated firmware to all of the TiVo Streams and Roamio's, I doubt they will push the Android update out there.

I guess it wasn't during the TV section, but rather the cloud platform. Go to 1:07 and you'll see TiVo listed.

You mean this?


Personally I suspect Android stream update will be separate from any other mainstream Tivo summer or late summer update since the primary update will be comprised of releasing a new Android TiVo app and not really a update to the primary Tivo devices. In theory no update to hardware firmware should be necessary esp since the protocol is already there since the IOS devices use it today, it just flicking the switch at headquarters to enable such for a new Android application.

Unless there is a major change in how content is streamed out of the Tivo, we will not see a update that will need to come down to our TiVo's, just the announcement that a new Android TiVo application is available, remember we already have half the solution which is the Stream hardware, all that is missing is the Android application.
