Just downloaded the HBO Go app for my Droid. Super cool, basically all of HBO programming on.demand on my phone included in the cost for the satellite programming. I haven't checked it out over 3g yet, but with WiFi the video.streams quickly with HD quality picture and sound.

The future is an awesome time to live in.

I guess you are too busy reading books and following the theatre. Bully for you, sport.

I think it's really cool that this is possible and don't blame anyone for going for it especially since it's free. I just hope that I never become that hooked on technology. Nothing wrong with it for those interested. Just not my cup of tea. Heck, I don't even like texting. If my cell phone wasn't so useful, I wouldn't even have it.

I'm sorry I don't get it, who enjoys Tivoing tons of programming and watching/keeping up with all the reality shows and Lindsay Lohan and jocking Charlie Sheen all the time while taking barely legal girls around in his limo?

Tell us how great Verizon is next please and that none of us should use our phones for anymore than calling people. Don't forget to mention the part that AT&T sucks and you hate them so much after suing them you wouldn't use their service for free.

Sounds cool. I don't have HBO at my house or satellite so this wouldn't be available to me, would it? I only watch one show on HBO (just started Sunday), True Blood. I am about half way through season 2 so after I finish this up, there wouldn't be any programs for me to watch.

many at the gym do
them cardio machines are boring all day long
I try to time my workouts with what will be on the overhead TV's - which basicly is Fox, CNN & ESPN, which is great for watching NASCAR on Sundays - but - for the most part - sucks.
I've been anciously awaiting Netflix for my Android.
and, not all devices have 2" screens. there is the new generation of smartphone based tablets.

I watch NO reality tv shows....none unless you call trials reality 'shows. Ive had Verizon for 25 years with narry a problem of any kind. Yes people use a phone to make phone calls. ATT sucks across the board, yes I sued them and won. My buddy just got ATT for his internet. We spent 6 hours trying to get it to work, even with tech. It still wont connect to a new computer. 19 year old girl here yesterday gets to spend summer in jail (90days) for texting instead of calling someone. Sheen always was and is a total jerkoff....Lohan is a typically totally clueless celebrity. Ive got a big screen tv to watch tv shows (several in fact) and I wouldnt watch a 2" screen ever. 'IF' im somewhere that dont have something to do like at an airport, I can watch my 17" laptop or buy a $50 DVD player that at least is viewable. 20-25 year old girls are hardly 'barely legal' by any discription of the law except maybe yours. My limo is a toy just like your Fiero is to you. It comes in handy to run people around in instead of taking 4 cars, a bus or a big van...plus its fun to take to car cruises. We take it to races, bars, restaurants or whatever. It even worked great picking up a load of 2X4s. Did I miss anything mr nothing ?

Damn roger I really used to like you but lately every time I read your post your being an ******* . What's up?

The point is you don't have to carry different devices anymore. I don't want to carry around a dvd player and dvds when I can have 10s of thousands of hours of programming right in my pocket! Nintendo is finding that out right now. There gameboys aren't selling! Why? No one needs to carry around a portable game machine anymore ....they have one on there phone. Android and iPhone app stores are kicking there butt. If you don't like it good. Don't use it. I love it and take advantage of it.

Hip hip.

This is honestly a great thing. Someone was posting about Verizon 4G LTE in another thread. With an 11Mbps downstream watching quality content is a reality. Not to mention my screen is 4.3" and some tablets are up to 11". In comparison the first portable DVD player had something like a 5" screen, weighed a ton and had a lower resolution screen. I don't personally watch TV, but streaming content is fantastic for any media. Anyway boo for me on this app, but awesome none the less.

I simply weighed in with my opinion. I dont know why this generation feels they have to be entertained 24/7. Cant walk, sit or drive without a phone in hand, earbuds in the ear. Their whole life revolves around a smart phone. Lose it and you have no record of appointments, way to get hold of friends, time, and god forbid you cant sit on a park bench without watching an episode of American Idol. Cant anyone just go sit in the park or on their porch and enjoy the outdoors. How about just striking up a conversation with a total stranger ? No one is so important that they cant just put down the phone and be unreachable for an hour. I swear no younger person can survive an hour with their phone just turned off. People walking down the street walk right into moving cars and the girls at the restaurant are talking or texting while their working serving customers. Rules even say NO PHONES, yet theyre willing to jeapordize losing their job to tell their friend she got new shoes. Sometimes I wish everything would shut down from a solar flare or something for a day so people could actually live their life. Next im going to expect to see tv imbedded in your corneas, earphones in your ear and a phone in your brain so you can become a real glob of jelly. In my place of business...if were talking business...and you start talking on your phone, I walk away or leave and thats the end of the conversation. Same policy should be at any check out line. Im happy everytime I walk into a business with a sign on the door saying 'NO CELL PHONES'. Even the biggest local junkyard has that policy now. Use it and they wont help you and then ask you to leave.

On your topic, I can see the benefit of having that app for free HBO since you CAN connect it to your home tv, which is the only way I would use it.

Heres something to do for you. Get a bunch of friends or family together, turn off all your phones and play a good game of Monopoly on the kitchen table for 4 or 5 hours. Eat, drink, laugh and talk to each other while doing so.


UPDATE; Just mentioning something new on the news hotline about my old friend AT&T. Seems the crooks there are still at it if you have a smart phone. AT&T is charging YOU data time used to update any software in the apps you have on your Iphone, even if its turned OFF. Reports are customers are charged between 14%-300% over what they should be. In a test on the news program, they turned it off overnite and found the next morning theyd been charged 35 mins of data time while it was off. AT&T claims was just routine updates of the installed apps software. Ya, I still say AT&T is run and operated by a mess of out and out crooks.

Watching TV/movie on a two inch cell phone or a 50 inch HD TV screen at home.. lets see what shall I do, what shall I do? The cell phone technology of today reminds me of the people in the Disney movie Wall-E. engrossed in sitting down watching all on holographic images (3-D TV) as life passes them by.

I blocked texting on the cellphone as IT IS A PHONE..call me!

I FREQUENTLY go without mine. It infuriates my job. I don't take it on dates. I don't deal with it while interacting with ANYONE. If a friend comes over and I'm on the phone I hangup and visit with company.

Roger, FYI, I like to poop with mine. Now that is a great time to be entertained.

Well, **** you all. Next time I think about posting something cool, I will refrain.

BTW, my screen is 3.7 inches. Held in my hand, that is a picture as big as the 42" screen across the room.

Ill bet your arms are tired after watching a 2 hour movie. I cant hold mine up for more than 15 minutes with nothing in them, lol. Im going to invent a harness that holds your phone a foot in front of your face 24/7 so you wont miss anything and still have your hands free.

No need to be defensive. You said you had this cool new app, and for you Im happy and you have the perfect right to post it. I just stated I dont get why people do it, and I have the perfect right to post that too. Neither of us have to agree with each other. There are lots of things I disagree with, but never a persons right to post it. As you can see, lots also disagree with my ideas and I can deal with that. This is not a popularity page to see who can get the most agreeable replies. I see we both have red and green. Its that old saying you cant please 100% of the people 100% of the time.

I did just do a little impromptu hands on test. For a 4" screen to 'look like' a 32" screen it has to be about 6" in front of your eye. Same test to a 50" screen looks like about 2" from your eye. Just sayin. I did this by sitting about 6 feet from the 32 and 50 inch tvs and holding up a 4inch square and moving it in and out till it appeared to match the tv screen size. measurments were all estimates, i didnt actually use a ruler.

Roger, I don't know how old you are. I don't consider myself that old but growing up the largest TV we had was maybe a 32". I had a 13" at one point. Most of my adult life I had a 19" or 20" TV. How big is a 27" from 6 feet away?
Would you refuse to watch TV because the picture was not as big as a movie theater screen?

Guess what? Netflix is now available for Android. It's pretty cool too. I would have mentioned it earlier, but didn't want to offend the senior citizens.

You sit 6 feet away from your TV? Do you watch TV in a hallway? We have larger homes here.

Hmm. My niece said that a friend of hers couldn't find it in the app store. Must be only for smartphone with 2 inch screens.

It was just a handy distance to test. My cousin has a in home theater with a 10 foot projection screen. A few rows of recliner couches from maybe 10' away to 30'. I do like to sit closer to my tv though. Whats the point of having a 50" screen if you sit 30' away from it on the other side of the room. Ya, I do like a screen to look as big as a theater screen. I dont go to theaters anymore. My main room I hang out in and watch most tv is 8' X 25' with 3 couches. I have a 20" screen in the garage, but listen to it more that actually watch it. From across my 2 1/2 car garage its too small to watch. 17" is ok in the stretch limo since your less than 6 feet from it anywhere. I did have a 32" in the rear of my Magnum and it was perfect.

The apartment we have here is rather small. Now you made me curious. so I tried and just found out that I CAN'T lay down in the space between the tv and the couch and I am 6'6. The tv is a 50inch HDTV.

I think the technology is cool, and I can see watching stuff at those times suggested like dr appts, airports, commuting etc. I have a cheap AT&T Prime cell phone with a 3inch screen. I have put movies on its memory card, but never actually watched one because it just seems so small.

? Does one go blind faster by watching p*rn on a 2-3 inch screen? lol

I just measured, and we sit 9' from our 73" tv. I can't wait till Mitsubishi comes out with the 103" one next year.

I use my iPhone to watch stuff all the time. Will it replace my 73"...no, but it is kind of hard to tote around. I only use about 45 min a month voice on the phone. If it was not good for entertainment, I would probably just do without.

So is it only free if you already pay for HBO through your satellite/cable provider? Anyway, neat stuff. I really need a smartphone. Maybe at the end of this contract.

There's also an espn app that allows you to do the same thing. Watch espn live from anywhere unfortunately I cant use because directive doesn't support it.
