How to Get TV (Nearly) Everywhere

Bad news for couch potatoes: finding a one-stop service or device to handle all one’s streaming television needs isn’t getting any easier. Which means the cost to watch TV over several devices isn’t getting any cheaper.

Cable companies wanted to give customers “TV everywhere,” the option to watch every show online and on mobile devices. But as the Wall Street Journal reported, the idea stalled. as the companies struggled to make deals with individual channels and advertisers that would allow them to offer shows on demand for subscribers. In the meantime, experts say, more low-cost services popped up offering access to narrow bands of select content.

A true “TV Everywhere” solution might let a customer have just one subscription for all his favorite shows and devices, but that’s not yet possible, says Dan Rayburn, a principal analyst for Frost & Sullivan. Right now, the cable companies’ online streaming offerings still require a cable subscription. Most services, including Hulu, Netflix, Amazon and Apple, have different content options, he says. The same holds true for different devices: the Xbox 360 video game console, for example, has ESPN and Syfy, while the Roku streaming player has Amazon Instant Video and HBO Go. (Both connect with Netflix, Hulu and Crackle.) “Most consumers still pay for cable TV today because it’s easy, it has everything, and it works,” he says.

The closest consumers can get to “TV everywhere” is a $180-plus Slingbox and $30 mobile player, says Rayburn. The device connects to an existing home theater setup, letting users watch live TV and saved shows remotely through a tablet, mobile phone or other gadget. Consumers who already subscribe to Comcast or Time Warner have free access to some shows online after they air, and through apps for iOS and Android devices. Beyond that, solutions are more piecemeal, depending on the content you want to access and the device you want to watch it on.

Although consumers can’t reliably condense their services, they can still cut their bill. As we’ve previously reported, cable costs are dropping as companies introduce more low-level plans with fewer channels. TV watchers with a few core favorite channels may be able to get by with a cheaper cable plan and pick add-on streaming services strategically.

      Something amiss
      Thanks for the sweet rom. I’ve been holding off until a good rom came along after switching roms back and forth during my Infuse months.
      However, I’m missing the sound/vibrate and battery % icons on the top status bar. All I have is the 4g, signal and the std battery symbol on the right side. Any ideas?
      Thanks a bunch.

      For some reason this was done intentionally (I think). This is from the RC4.0 changelog:

      I had to switch to Dialer One after changing my DPI. I have been using 200dpi on mine for a while now with no other major issues. I would say about 25% of apps say they are not compatible (which is a bummer), but I think it is worth the tradeoff.

      This was definitely done intentionally. I for one hated having a permanent icon tell me that my vibration is on along with sound. Also note that the 4.2 upgrade has a pretty sweet battery % icon.
      Thanks giant, I’ll have to check that dialer out.

      For some reason changing the density to 200 makes my internet connection gone…

      Thanks, I missed that note. I guess I’ll switch back for now. I can’t live without the sound/vibrate icons. I go back and forth between silent and ringer several times a day, going in and out of meetings and the car.
