At my cottage and trying to get the anywhere app on my sony tv. I can get the Bell one but not rogers
My best case is getting on my computer and using HDMI cable but it gets blurry
Why is this so hard?
Then I guess its very poorly branded! thx for the message. It does seem strange to me that I can watch on my ipad and iphone sitting beside my tv, which I guess I will leave on the fireplace channel - oh I don't get that.
There is no cable access where I am.
That sort of brings up the 'point' of it.
While yes, the anywhere TV app is designed to watch stuff while not at home.. its designed for phones, tablets, etc.. for personal watching.
TV watching is to be done at the place where the service it paid for, which would then have the cable access.
This is a reason why that many services are some times not CASTABLE to TVs either.
The license is not there (been paid) for most of the media, to be able to be played back in that way, that its not supposed to be able to be viewed by a larger group of people in front of a TV. Just a single person.
Helps prevent 'account sharing' so to speak at well i guess. That person A can pay for the service at their house, but let X many other people use their login to view at their homes, etc.
If you get AnyplaceTV on a computer using the Chrome browser then you can cast it to a TV using Chromecast.
@TheArcher : Really? I thought that casting and connecting via HDMI was not possible, other than via a Rogers box. Viewing on the device (phone, tablet, laptop) is possible with certain other restrictions, like which channels, etc.
I rarely use Anyplace TV but before I sent the previous message I did bring up Anyplace TV in a tab in the Chrome browser. I was then able to cast anything on the tab to my TV with Chromecast. Anything on Anyplace TV that I could open on the laptop, I could cast and view on the TV. Quality is good.
