Recording internet streams is a definite no-no. We really don’t want the Tablo folks going to jail, do we?
A few folks have suggested this but most of these services have legal restrictions around recording of the programming. (This is one of the reasons why Sling doesn’t have a DVR-type service included and only streams some of the content on-demand.)
Yes, it would be super cool but we try to avoid getting sued.
@snowcat, going to jail? Playon does it, they aren’t in jail…
@TabloTV sling actually does include some shows to watch that are not live VOD
I just looked at Playon, and I don’t see anything on their site about recording internet streams. It appears to consolidate the various streaming providers (Hulu, Netflix, etc) into a single interface, but that is about it.
Their PlayLater recordings you can record any of the streams within PlayOn…@snowcat
Just to add to that :
Something screwed up the formatting on this one:
I am pretty surprised that this is legal, but it apparently is (for now). We will see if it continues.
If there is one thing we learned from the Aereo case is that as long as it is available and is for personal use only it is legal.
Cloud personal non-shared backups, essentially what Aereo did (actually it was way more restricted) was not allowed, but we can do cloud backups? Anyway, I suggest people understand the case… ultimately the SCOTUS missed on this one and cost a company its life.
You can record anything coming to your computer in full HD… it’s trivial… but whatever… (I"ll accept any challengers if you want a demo).
@cjcox, yes they missed because they did not understand the technology and the networks took advantage of that

What do you mean didn’t understand the technology? At an average age of slightly over 69 I’m sure they will be happy to describe to you how black and white television works…
