Why isnt it possible to watch TV episodes on the network apps? I have downloaded ABC, NBC etc and it says my device isnt supported. I go to their actual websites and try to watch in a browser, again, not supported. I cant see that Samsung would limit their 10 inch tab like that. Am i missing something?

Yeah, it says not compatible with my Tab 3 7.0 and my Toshiba Thrive. Supposedly, it is "coming soon". But it's compatible with my phone and my wife's phone. I don't think it was Samsung's choice. Weird though that the Tab 2 is compatible but not the Tab 3.

It's like how Netflix was super limited for a long time. They do a white list model where unless it's definitely supported they will not even let you try to use the service.
