I'm a little confused. We can only use these apps on our home networks. These apps are free as an add on to our already ridiculously inflated cable rates. It is basically adding a small flat television set to my household using software for the remote. What is the gripe the networks are pitching? This to me would be the same as them complaining if I gave my step son or daughter a TV in their room, are the networks entitled to a piece of the money I paid for the new TV??? And with all this, why are they not feeding the same problems to Slingbox and Tivo? Just a thread for interesting discussion.....curious on other members thoughts.
