    This is a bit of a mystery. The phone version of this app does stream video on my Nexus 9. However, the tablet version of this app just buffers endlessly and doesn't play anything. Hopefully this will get fixed.

    I wanted my guests to be able to watch something in their tablet in the guest room where I don't have a box or tv, nothing worked, some of the channels I have I can't even select to watch and the ones that were available don't work either. I'm getting tired off directv.

    You can't watch anything you want to watch while away from home. I can Maryland vs Michigan but I can't watch Arkansas vs Mississippi. What's the point in the app if you're not able to watch what you could on your TV at home?
