I can't understand why this is not allowed. For the first time I've gone to watch something that was recorded on my android tablet, only to find after an hour of searching that Optus don't allow this. So the app is only good for you to set some free to air programming, and that's about it. Doesn't make see when other providers for fetch tv allow this.
I have just received my bundled Fetch TV box, and was disappointed this feature was not available in the Generation 2 version.
I use a Samsung Galaxy 2 10.1 android tablet, and this is what I would really like to see updated in the android app.
This sounds promising -
The current Fetch TV already offers some of these digital TV streaming features but they've been disabled on boxes supplied by Optus, seemingly afraid of legal threats from the broadcasters and content owners after it lost the TV Now case. These features would seem to be on safe legal ground because they're your own recordings made in your lounge room, rather than recordings someone else helped you make in the cloud.
Thankfully Fetch TV is updating its smartphone apps in the next few months to remove this restriction on the Mighty and well as existing second-gen Fetch TV boxes, so Optus customers will be treated as equals. There are still some limitations for all Fetch TV users, related more to rights restrictions than technical issues."
Atr any Optus reps able to confirm this?
