My last post here....don't try and re-write history. FireTV had supported DRM using the HDHomerun app I purchased through the Amazon store. Even showed up as a purchased cloud app. One of the reasons I invested in FireTV. Then a forced update took it away without warning.
Ned is absolutely correct. It's intensely frustrating that Amazon isn't compliant now, because so many people have FTV sticks. It would be awesome to be able to let all those customers watch protected content. But as long as Amazon isn't compliant, then our hands are tied.
Out of curiosity, what do you mean by this? My understanding of the CableLabs/OCUR requirements is that they basically come down to "use a CableLabs-approved DRM system" once you're outside the OCUR device.
While it's probably a bit simplified, the main requirement on FireTV and other devices is to support an approved DRM system, and make whatever interfaces are necessary to use it available to application developers. Right? Or is there some other critical detail that I'm missing?
I think the issue is that FireTV devices don't seem to support DTCP-IP, which appears to be the one and only DRM system you are supporting with your apps. They do support other DRM systems- PlayReady and Widevine. Though, I see FireTV only supports PlayReady on the video stream, not the audio stream, so that presumably means you wouldn't be able to use PlayReady.
