I've finding this: Google says the API for the live TV tab is available to other services and that it’s already working with Sling on it.

Re: prime 6

I have to say, someone has an inside line, the FCC didn't come up with this on their own!!! I would bet 99% of the people that work at the FCC couldn't tell you what a cable card is, LOL! Edit: let me change that to 99.9%

Re: prime 6

That really surprises me, your CEO has been around a long time (unless something happened I didn't hear about). BTW: Has your CEO said he didn't know about it or you guys didn't know about it.

Re: prime 6

Ya, if they had anything to say or could do about it the FCC decision would have never happened. Companies always have information about decisions like this before they are announced and have to decide if they can or want to try to do anything about it. I'm sure SD knew about it ahead of time also. ...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

There's not 'millions' on the cox system I am on! The cable companies can phase them out in parts of areas they serve real quick if they want. That's the benefit of addressable devices on a network you own. You will get a letter in the mail first though!

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

Ya, I'd say the party will be ending shortly, it will be interesting to see how long the tuner keeps running on my COX system. Anyway, I've had mine a long time so i've gotten my monies worth. That's the way it goes with tech, it's amazing CC lasted this long I guess.

See the post/s on cable card no longer being required to rent/service by the FCC. That sort of answers this question for everyone.

Re: prime 6

Just saw that about cablecard and was going to post here. That's the end of this product before it even got out. Anyway, what's really crazy is I just pulled the cablecard out of my Sony HD 32inch tube! TV yesterday. The tv and cablecard was still working but I had a guy picking up junk and I finall...

I think I'm out, I'm more likely to drop cable at this point than to get a Prime 6.

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

Came back here to see if there is any news, there isn't any. If this ever comes out it's going to have to be real cheap or I'm out. I'm thinking about going with youtube tv. I hate the hd view app interface a bunch, still with WMC here but maybe not for long.

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

I was thinking I would get one for sure but the longer this drags on the more I think I might skip it, it will probably depend on price. I have one prime and a dual OTA. It seems like the cable channels repeat the same programming so often that if I hit a recording conflict or no tuner I can just re...
