  • What's the point of having this on a set-top box if you have to be a cable subscriber? I get why it would be nice to have on the phone/tablet or laptop. But it seems to me that if you already have the cable subscription, your TV would already have the channel/content that the Prime TV would offer. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have such boxes connected to TVs that don't have a cable box attached, thus saving some $ in monthly rentals.
  • Good point. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Depends on the provider. i know a few years back with Charter as long as you had their internet you had streaming access to ESPN3, TNT, TBS and a couple other selects. They might not do that now. I know AT&T requires that you have TV service and a select tier package in order to.
  • 1- TWC is charging $13 bucks a month for a box for your TV. I assume that other cable companies and satellite providers are similarly priced. The FireTV stick pays for itself quickly in this situation. 2- I don't need to run a cable to the TV. I don't do this a lot, but I do it regularly. 3- This travels- I can bring my FireTV stick with my to a house that doesn't have cable and watch there.
  • It's even worse with DirecTV. It's closer to $20 or $30 Posted via the Android Central App
  • Your maybe right, but if you are like me, i create a user with my sister cable and use all the benefits that she pay. I have WatchESPN, FoxNow, HBO Go, Showtime Anytime.
  • Can someone get this app on there fire tv then pull the app? I Want to run it on my nexus player
  • Would be lovely if Sky could do the same in the UK and help save me multi room subscriptions. Never going to happen though, for that reason I expect!
  • hope this eventually comes to Roku
  • This just made my fire stick well worth the $20. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This isn't cord cutting at all. A real news would be a separate package for non cable subscribers. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Meanwhile Amazon data centre is on fire. No really, it is. LoL! Posted via Android Central App
  • Don't bother installing on your Fire TV box if your cable provider is Comcast/Xfinity. Fox Sports Go does NOT support them. Typical....
  • I would think that would be coming pretty soon, since the sponsor one of the NASCAR series. Posted via Android Central App
  • Sigh...
    No Nexus Player owners love...
    No NHL? Pointless... I gotta have my hockey
