  • Finally!
  • Great news but sadly too late for me, my two brothers snapped up the service on their iPhones months ago. With the introduction of the service on Android they should increase the subscriptions per household from 2 to 3 or 4
  • ?? err?? No Nexus? How dare they forget about the Samsung Nexus. Now iOS users are saying "Who got samsung'd now?"
  • Now, I have nothing to do with this website concerned but a UK based blog, 2 in fact ran this story before anyone else including you and like pocket lint,recombu and electric pig and many other 'big' sites you all failed to give the credit for the story, something that is happening more and more. I do notice though that you do credit Eurodroid quite a bit even though they get their stories from other sources and don't credit either Back to the post, this will be something that other UK based broadcasters will find tough to compete against, even more so with their internet tv offerings.
