DirecTV Streaming Live TV to iPad
We’ve mentioned DirectTV’s recently launched Nomad device before that allows DirecTV subscribers to take their DVR recordings on the road. The downside to the Nomad was that you could only load up your mobile device on your home network. DirecTV has updated their iPad app with support for live TV streaming, but like Nomad transfers, it only works from your home network. However, if you are a DirecTV subscriber and own an iPad it is definitely a nice addition to the controls that app already provided and a perfect excuse to bring the MythBusters to bed with you. Or something like that.
DirecTV debuted its iPad app in February with an impressive suite of remote control and content browsing options, but one of the few missing features was the ability to watch TV on it, which has now been added. Like similar apps from Cablevision and Time Warner Cable, v1.3.1 adds the ability to watch 38 channels live on the tablet, provided you’re connected to the same home network as your DirecTV Plus HD DVR.
