    How? Does your cable company offer that? I'm a news addict and would love to watch CNN when the work allows.

    Comcast offers an app for current subscribers to watch many live TV shows including CNN

    Xfinity TV app on Comcast. I watch it every now and then when I'm getting loaded at work. But I won't glisten my screen with CNN nor MSNBC as they are not worthy of my N3.

    I think there are 30 or so live stations so it's not just them.

    I do it all the time... I've got dish network. All you need is a $50 sling adapter and a newer receiver (most of them within the last 2 years are capable).

    I can watch live TV from any station that I subscribe to and also DVR and on demand content

    To the best of my knowledge, unlike Comcast, Time Warner doesn't offer that And, while our local stations have their apps, there's no live streaming.

    And if you have a compatible Samsung Smart TV you can just stream from the TV to your phone.

    It only works for Verizon (on mobile data.. WiFi works for all) unless it bugs for you. Me and she friends can't use it since we don't have Verizon and don't want to be on wifi... But at the same time some of my Sprint friends can. It's weird.

    Either way if you want true live TV (all channels) invest in a Slingbox.

    If you have a sling box
    Sling Media: Slingbox - Best Buy


    Amazon.com : Sling Media Slingbox SOLO (SB260-100) : Digital Video Recorders : Electronics

    You buy a slingbox, set it up on one of your cable boxes, download and install app on your cellphone, tablet and laptop. Stream live tv anywhere anytime. All the channels you have at home you have on your device.

    You pay for slingbox "ONE TIME ONLY" it's yours forever. You pay nothing more ever. (except your cable bill) LOL

    It works on mobile data and wifi

    If the box sits near your TV, how does the phone get a signal 10 miles away?

    On Xfininty with Sprint, I can watch some, not all, programs over mobile data. The only service that seems to be truly blocked is On Demand. Like you said, it's weird.

    It's connected to your LAN so you actually can get a signal anywhere in the world.

    The box has two connections, the first is to your cable box and the second is plugged into your internet.

    ** The cable box you connect with is mirrored to you online through your device, meaning if someone is at home looking at that box you both have to watch the same thing. You would not want to put it on the cable box that is most often used. some people even split cable signal off and add another box but no tv. I use the box from the man cave. **

    It streams it through the Internet.. You know.. That thing we all use to stream media, music, news from hundreds or thousands of miles away from servers?

    It's brilliant, thank you! It's not running perfectly on here but I'm going to try it on the Nexus.
