The pimp hand was so strong with this one. Thanks to Coach Harbaugh and the team! That was satisfying.

It's an add on for Kodi. Look for Exodus or Genesis.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||You can only stream||
You can only stream PlaystationVue from your "home". I believe it verifies the MAC address of your home router. So you won't be able to stream Vue programming from a different location of the activating device.

Kodi will allow you to save streams to a hard drive to watch later, DIY DVR. I would probably get one of the dedicated Kodi boxes or a FireTV for that because it's too processor intensive for the stick.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I curently subscribe to||
I curently subscribe to Amazon Prime, Netflix, and PlaystationVue. That's $108 for Amazon for the year. $9.99per month for Netflix & $35 per month for PSV (mid-tier). It comes out to just about $60 per month.
PlaystationVue has all the sports channels that I watch ESPN 1&2, ESPN NEWS (Also you can watch ESPN 3 directly from the ESPN app with a PSV subscritpion), FSN1&2, NBCsports...
For sports lovers PSV is excellent the quality has been great as well, 1080p. Only drawback is you won't get your local sports affiliates but that can be augmented with a digital antenna.
Vue also has a Cloud DVR service which will capture any shows on your favorite channels for 30 days it's pretty sweet. You just set ESPN or whatever as a favorite an watch away
If you have multiple TV's here's the deal for Vue.
You will NEED One PlaystationVue Compatible device to activate your service in your home. As of right now I think this is only the Amazon devices or the Playstation 3 or 4. I learned this the hard way. Once you activate the service there is a lot of flexibility though. You can do multiple streams on up to 5 devices.
For any additional TV's you CAN just get Chromecasts, they are only $30. Then you could use the PSV app from a mobile device (Android or iOS) to cast to that TV. Essentially your mobile device becomes your remote for Vue. There are some restrictions on what you can watch on mobile devices so check their website for the details. Alternately just you can use Firesticks as well they are marginally more expensive and have more Services associated with them, Netflix, Sling, Hulu, etc. the kids will like them more than the Chromecast.
So to answer you questions mGrowold yeah, you could ditch DirectTV if you aren't gonna miss the extra channels provided by them. In my experience with PSV and a Digital Antenna you save a ton of money and can get all the sports you want. If you are gonna have multiple streams just make sure your internet down speed is up to par.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I have a Firestick and||
I have a Firestick and Chromecast. One of the benefits of using one of the Amazon based streaming devices are that they essentially run on Android OS. Therefore you can use Kodi which used to be XMBC, open source community developed software for streaming. I haven't used it on my Firestick but I have some friends who have. You can essentially watch any TV broadcast from anywhere in the world. Your quality will vary depending on what you are watching. Roku's are essentially disqualified for me because you can't install Kodi.
Also, the amazon devices are PlaystationVue compatible, Roku too. You will want this. They have the Big Ten network.
You can take a look at this link it is a definitive list of the best streaming devices.

Freddy P. Soft, like Dr Pepper's Little Sweet but Evil!

Although it's a good thing I just realised how much I cringe when Harbaugh mentions anyone on the roster along with the NFL.
...Don't leave me bro!
|6 weeks 5 hours ago||He's probably still adjusting||
He's probably still adjusting from the injury. He's always had great wheels and been an excellent blocker but I remember in his first two years on the field he used to have a hard time tracking the long ball. Seemed like he was misjudging the trajectory and how to compensate a lot. Didn't he get contacts or something too? Maybe he needs a checkup.

There is no reason to root for Ohio state. Ever, if we win our games everything will be as it should. You're getting in front of your skis.

Crumple zone engaged...
Nothing to see here folks, move along please.

If I remember correctly wasn't Griese's first pass from scrimmage an interception as well? There may be something to this?
WolverineHistorian or WD would know, I'm too lazy to look it up.

I will never root for OSU to win. I might be able to muster it would be okay if they didn't lose but no!

They're in man 80% or more. The madness or genius of Brown's defense is you don't know who's coming.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||whatever, until we get wins||
whatever, until we get wins over MSU and OSU...
BlueCube is too good to have a chip on his or her shoulder got it.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||This. The meritocracy||
This. The meritocracy involves coming in and making an effort to contribute right away. As long as we're bringing in high quality talent and character athletes freshman will be "expected" to be on the three deep at their position by the end of their freshman year barring injury. I think we'll see higher levels of attrition for kids that can't hack it but I like the contrast considering we have a top flight coaching staff.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Can someone pull up the||
Can someone pull up the anonymous qoutes from the B10 players and coaches from media days saying that the D last year was nothing special. I love the praise but as fans lets keep a chip on our shoulder!
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Although they are both great||
Although they are both great tacklers I think Peppers may be better in the box. Blitzing & run support. Hill seems to have better cover skills.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Tacopants last year of||
Tacopants last year of eligibility, now is his time to shine.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||If healthy I think De'Veon||
If healthy I think De'Veon continues to get the starts for the majority of the season. Chris Evans really does seem like a budding star though so I think he will get lots of run. Maybe 700-800yds rushing and 400-500rec?
It was only game one and the rainbow warriors but I haven't seen a back with the shiftiness of Chris since Touchdown Tim?

Yeah Taco seems like a strange omission. I mean who doesn't like Tacos?

I will eat a salt covered lime followed by a shot of tequila if he doesn't end up in AA. Book it!
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I have to agree that freshman||
I have to agree that freshman can't play this or that spot because it will equal doom is an outdated paradigm. Football players more than ever, have access to conditioning, coaching, competition(camps). If you play football you are considerably bigger, stronger and faster than the majority of players from just 20 years ago and that is at any level.
I agree that there is no substitute for experience but the competancy of athletic skill today is unrilvaled historically. Add to that, technique for skill positions is much more accesible and you have freshman and rookies starting in P5 and in the NFL all the time now.

We'll be young! No doubt, Doc Brown will find some dudes though. Kinda paper thin in the secondary next year. But we'll be in the 2nd year of this Defense which will be a plus and although we lose a lot we potentially have; Peppers(not NFL ready), Mone, Gary, Hurst, Onwenu?, Winovich, McCray, Furbush, Bush, Uche and possibly a few surprises who've all seen significant playing time in front of the young secondary.
So far we have St-Juste and Woods at CB and S. With the potential for early playing time I don't have any doubt that this staff is gonna find some gamers who want to play here.
We're in a good position for:
Maybe Darnay Holmes
We'll be young but good!
|9 weeks 6 hours ago||I think we'll be fine. We||
I think we'll be fine. We have Keith Washington, David Long, Lavert Hill and Stribling (did he rs?) vying for starting spots on the outside.
Safety is pretty thin though, Kinnel, Watson (maybe he's still a CB), Hudson and Matellus.
The '17 recruiting class will have to produce at least one corner and safety that is ready to play from day one though.

Isn't it her job to stop goals. This person is insufferable. I would guess and hope this will be her last Olympics. She's a terrible representative for the team and country. Every time she opens her mouth she says something stupid.
