Re: tv any where

You need to have access to a wi-fi network, so if you're at home your broadband will need to be on, but if you're out and using a different wi-fi network then it doesn't matter if your broadband is on or not.

I believe it is the exact opposite of that.

Your home broadband via Superhub can be off but your TiVo does have to be powered.

Re: tv any where

Hi blue4nose, 

 

Thanks for your post Smiley Happy

 

In order to stream from TV Anywhere, you need to be connected to a wifi network so therefore if you are trying to stream whilst at home, just in another room, then yes, your wifi would need to be on. 

 

If you are streaming away from home, then no, your home wifi can be switched off however you will still need to be connected to a wifi connection outside of your home for streaming to work. 

 

Hope that helps Smiley Happy

 

Thanks,
