I know this had been hashed before but...

Just wondering if there was any word on Android support. With the AEREO SCOTUS decision AEREO pulled the plug Saturday at 11:30am. I was ok using it as a substitute, now that it's gone I'm back to needing a TiVo Stream Android support.

My tablet is 4.2.2 my phone is 4.4.2, perhaps Chromecast support would be off the chain.

The last rumor said June. Even if it's not simultaneous with the impending summer update, I still believe we're close.

One of Tivo's cable partners is saying:

Did they mean June 2015? At this point it would not be a surprise if it was.

Na, If there is a cutoff, 4.2 Jelly bean would be it.

As much as version might be a issue I stand behind the reason for delay is legal and political with no bearing if any being technical.

TiVo new business plan is providing cable company TiVo services and the cable companies have no desire to offer additional services such as mobile streaming. Such as my cable companies TiVo service doesn't include many of the traditional TiVo services such as internet streaming (netflix, hulu) or even MRV such as TiVo desktop/pytivo. Now that MSO's don't have to support cable cards in their own boxes, the days of cable card and retail TiVo services are coming to an end.

We are headed back to the dark ages were a cable company provided box will be required and they (the cable company) will be the only ones who have the final say in how you watch TV. TiVo was no need to expand an infrastructure that will not be around in five-ten years.

HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) support was first offered in 4.2, and updated to the more modern version in 4.4...

It is possible it could work with 4.2, but I am betting Android streaming will be limited to version 4.4 - and since the cell providers are stingy on their software updates for Android - only the newest phones and tablets will see the functionality.

I was talking to a friend of mine who is a developer. He said that the combination of device and OS proliferation makes android development a mess. While he could create android versions of his apps, it just never makes sense. The extra fly in the ointment is the carriers who have all types of restrictions on what you can/cannot load/change.

If they stick with HLS then I agree 4.4 is likely going to be the target. From what I've read HLS on 4.2 is a nightmare and really unstable.

However if they switch to MPEG-DASH then they could go back even further and even add support for Windows. DASH is based on the MP4 format so it's supported on almost all OSes. It wasn't a standard back when the Stream was released, but it is now and it's got way better compatibility then HLS.

MPEG-DASH is an interesting read...
