DirecTV iPad App Updated to Let You Stream Video Anywhere

Previously, DirecTV subscribers could use their iPad as some sorta pseudo TV because the app could stream Live TV while you were on your home Wi-Fi network. Now the app's been updated to be even better: you can watch some content anywhere, even if you're not at home.

It's not a huge list of content providers yet but anywhere you get a Wi-Fi or 3G or 4G connection, you can stream content from HBO, Cinemax, Encore, Starz, Sony Movie Channel and DirecTV's Audience Network. It's a little interesting since if you were an HBO or Cinemax subscriber, you could just use the HBO GO or MAX GO apps to get their content but hey, any streaming content that's not tying you to just inside your home for subscribers is always good.

I'll be dead before Amazon lets that app fly on the Kindle Fire. I fucking hate when companies proprietary bullshit gets in the way of product innovation.
