Re: Nowhere TV

As much as I want to see Al Jazeera America streamed there is no way in the US that will happen officially. AJA had to not only bend over to retain cable and sat tv channel spot, but they had to change the concept this spring so as to appease the cable/sat operators. Originally, AJA was supposed to be 60 percent Al Jazeera English programming, 40 percent US based. The cable/sat operators were adamant that as part of the deal to let AJA use Current TV spot the programming had to be US based primarily.

I'll be watching it to see if the changes water down what I love about AJE. I'll also continue to VPN and watch AJE.

Re: Nowhere TV

So I'm really unfamiliar with what it takes for a local news stream to be compatible, but if possible it would be nice to add WJAC-TV's live newscast stream to the channel.

Re: Nowhere TV

I have been unable to view Lifetime movies for several weeks. I always get a "no content available" message. If I go to the Lifetime website, there are several movies available, but they no longer show up on NowhereTv. Anyone know why?

Re: Nowhere TV

Hello there, Chris...

Dave Ramsey's folks have started streaming his show live (and repeating throughout the day afterward) with video & audio feeds at http://www.daveramsey.com/show/videos/

I'd love to see the video feed up on Nowhere TV, but I'm not sure what format the video is in, and whether it will fly for you.

I do know there is an iOS stream available; I'll do some digging once I get home and see if I can find the URL.

Thanks!

Re: Nowhere TV

I mourn the loss of Channel 9 Orlando. Is there any chance of replacing it with another Orlando station?

I don't suppose there is any way to add Me-TV?

I bet the answer is no, but if it was possible, I'd think it would already be on NTV. Love MeTV, our local channel pre-empts it way too much.

Re: Nowhere TV

Request:
PLEASE on the leanback mode, change the way the remote works so that the left/right does fast forward like it does now, but make it so that the next button (double arrow thingy) goes to the "next" video instead of just 5 minutes down the road in fast forward. Annoying having to fast forward through 30+ or 60+ minute videos, etc.

Actually, if I were to do something like that, it would be the other way around. As a matter of best practice, FF/RW should always seek/scrub within content. LEFT/RIGHT make more sense for skipping to the next piece of content.

But leanback uses the player's default video screen and there's no way to override remote button behavior there, so it's not likely to happen any time soon.
