Why can I not watch my recorded shows on the TV Anywhere App?

...because it isn't a function of the app.

Re: TV Anywhere App and My Shows

Why not? Go to Google Play and look at this TIVO app

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tivophone.android

 

It allows you to watch LIVE and RECORDED shows on your tablet /phone.

 

Why can Virgin not add this to their app?

...because we live in a country with different rights issues with the content owners. The function also requires an additional piece of hardware which is not available in this country or compatible with the Virgin Media hardware.

Re: TV Anywhere App and My Shows

So why are we allowed to record shows to watch later on our tvs then?

 

And I'm sure that it wouldn't need an extra piece of hardware to stream something from the hard drive over the internet.

 

Isn't the Tivo not Virginmedia hardware BUT Tivo hardware bought by Virginmedia?

Because the broadcasters allow that, they barely allow streaming between two tivos let alone over the dreaded internet, also the absolute maxium upload speed that could be given to a tivo is 2 meg and that's not nearly enough to stream recorded programs
