Sorry to hear of your frustrations Whitby. My own concerns were rising as I was nearing my installation. I just had cable internet installed with VMedia this morning and thankfully, Rogers agreed to my first suggested installation date and actually showed up within the planned time slot.Look, vmedia.. I get that you are stuck with having the Rogers guys do the install, but tell me again why you asked me to select a time slot if you know Rogers won't consider it? It makes you guys look like powerless puppets...which may be true under the sheets, but is something you might want to hide rather than put on your webpage.
Agree 100%. My shipment notification also came only after the confirmation of the installation date. So, I spent yesterday waiting in for the fedex delivery (which was originally expected for the day before) hoping they would indeed show up. Again, thankfully all ended up well.Rogers is due here tomorrow. things are looking good.. Oh, but wait...VMedia shipped the hardware via fedex. Do you think it would go out 21 days ago, on the date I ordered it? Nooooo!!..They ship it out on the date the installation is confirmed..and they use Fedex GROUND so it arrives too late for the install.
Most neighbourhoods are like that. My point is that if they limit you to 15/10 for IPTV, you'll pay for the 15/10 tier and you'll get 15/10 regardless of whether the TV is in use or not. With Vmedia, you pay for whatever speed you subscribe to and the speed will take a small hit once the TVs are on.In my neighbourhood, the max download speed is restricted if you subscribe to IPTV. Last I checked, I could not get 25 Mbps download and IPTV. If I subbed to IPTV, the max I could get was 15 Mbps download.
Sorry let me drill down on them on both sentences individually since I didn't have much time when I posted.I admit I can't clearly interpret what your first two sentences signify
As I wrote in my article, I consider the "cloud" and "TV anywhere" labels to be hype because the reality is you can't watch the recorded shows anywhere, only within Wifi range of your home internet connection.Calling it a cloud based PVR service is pure marketing hype.
Not sure why you misunderstood this. Its just a link to my complete article where I discuss your new service. hope that helps.My thoughts are at Vmedia introduces network PVR feature for select channels.
I was told by an expert in the industry that it was because Android could not offer the proper authentication technologies that a cable or IPTV box could because it was open source. According to the expert I spoke to, it was the reason that Zazeen could offer a local PVR and Vmedia couldn't. (apparently Zazeen uses closed source encryption which rightly or wrongly is considered more secure by content providers)Just curious as to why you guys aren't offering a local HDD based PVR solution? Since you guys are android based I'm sure it can be enabled easily with a software upgrade?
