Cellular stream work around

I wanted to report on the capabilities of the OOH stream on just a cellular connection.

While you cannot initiate a direct stream over a cellular connection, you can start a download and begin watching after just a few moments.

Pretty cool:

Start a recording -> initiate a download to your IOS device -> start watching

So while we are waiting for Apple to approve streaming for LTE connected devices, TiVo has given us a very robust work around that gives full functionality when on the road!

Good find, this works great. Thanks.

The only thing it doesn't allow of course is streaming from premium channels but usually those shows can be streamed direct from the channel's app.

The only thing I don't know is what the difference is in amount of data used to download vs stream a video.

But it was very cool of TiVo (planned or unplanned) to provide this very robust work around.

On a somewhat related note;
While I was downloading a show, at first it said 123 MB at basic. After a few minutes it changed to 155 MB's. Strange I thought.
