I think its great that Comcast is finally joining the rest of the industry with some live streaming. They did do one thing right in not limiting the number of channels, so basically they have said anything you subscribe you can stream. But it has the inherent problem as 95% of the industry, which is limited streaming in the house only. Working at DISH I have seen all the changes in the industry as they try to find some middle ground with streaming, but it seems as of yet, not a lot of providers have figured it out. I suppose it could be the fact that all these apps are in their first generation, which in time they could let them out of the house. I would think rather then waiting years for that to happen, I will continue to use my sling adapter. It allows me to stream all my live channels and recorded shows to my iPhone no matter where I am giving me a true TV everywhere experience.
