Why is it called TV Anywhere

How can you call this app TV Anywhere when you can only use the app when connected to the same WiFi the tivot box is connected too in your house.....what is the point.

The name TV Anywhere suggests you can watch it anywhere !!!!  

When are you going to get your act together and have an app that you can actually down load programmes to watch offline (like Sky Go ) and use Anywhere and NOT have to have it connected to the box.

Re: Why is it called TV Anywhere

Your first statement is incorrect.

The TV Anywhere app works on wifi outside your home. It does not have to be on your Superhub home network.

Actually, your TiVo isn't even connected to your home network.

Re: Why is it called TV Anywhere

So why does it say it"cannot connect to your tivot box please make sure they areboth connected to the same WiFi ??? 

It will connect to WiFi outside but it won't let me watch anything without being connected  or are you going to tell me it can do ??? 

Oso how do you watch programmes anywhere where there is a WiFi connection without bring connected to your box ?

Re: Why is it called TV Anywhere

When you get the not connected message, you are trying to do something that can't be done.

Are you trying to watch a channel with the wifi symbol? Try channel 104.

What are you trying to do when you get the message? ...in detail.

Re: Why is it called TV Anywhere

I just want to watch say ie. sky sports,, nothing too complicated. also it doesn't allow you download a programme and watch off line...which the salesman said it did.

Should have known not to take what a salesman says as gospel !

Re: Why is it called TV Anywhere

Also if it was called

TV in a few extra places if you are on wifi

It would not have the same sales impact, good marketing

You don't use TV Anywhere to access Sky premium channels. You use Sky's own apps where there is a button to push for Virgin Media customers which allows you then to use your Virgin Media credentials to gain access.
