No subscription no premium channels.. - buju - 2011-05-02 02:36

Actually now they do the check the subscription and you don't get access to other channels other than the free ones.
I've just signed up and no luck seeing anything other than the above.
I am interested only in one channel from their premium lineup, so $29/m (plan w/o DVR) is not worth it.
Good plugin, overpriced service.
There are other services that are just as expensive, but at least they have all HD channels...

Nice work. We are working on putting together a proper interface to our service to better integrate with 3rd party viewing platforms, but you did a great job with what you had. Now that users have to log-in and access control works as it should, we are glad to be supported on one more platform. I was not able to get the quality working correctly to view the highest quality stream, but everything else worked great. I will have to get some better quality graphics and see what it takes to integrate our DVR. Any other feedback/ suggestions are welcome.

thanks for the message! good to see you don't hate the plugin
i experimented with the dvr stuff but didn't follow it up because the site was changing so much.
a proper api would be great! it would be nice to be able to only get channels you have rights to watch for example.
there is a silly off by one error with the quality settings - the fix is in github but i haven't made a release yet.
patches welcome for better graphics or more functionality

as eric kindly dropped by earlier and didn't scream 'cease and desist' like most content providers i thought i'd tidy up the improvements i'd made and chuck out a new release. (see first post for details)
v0.2.0 fixes the quality settings problem eric mentioned, and also allows you to watch recordings you have made using the website.
i also noticed that the streaming seems much better now - i'm not seeing any buffering even on the highest quality at the moment. guess the service is becoming more stable.

Not working for me on ATV2 running latest Dharma & current version of Add-on. It seems to log in OK & I see all the streams. clicking on any of the, brings up "opening stream" ... but it never does. Tried retyping userid/pass & selecting different options in the Add-on but no go. Been trying for a couple days of & on with same result.

hmmmm, that suggests that the script is being cancelled directly after the login is initiated. even if i put the wrong user/password in that doesn't happen on my machines (but i only have linux and xbox - no ATV2)
a quick google shows the same thing happening with other scripts on ATV2 but i can't see an answer anywhere.
i'm afraid i'm stumped
anyone else have any ideas?

When I try and sign up I get this message. "Become informed of availability in your area". I thought this was an online service, is it just tv listings?
It may be that they are looking at my ipaddress as for location, and we are not on the list to recieve the service.
All the channels in the listing do nothing including the streaming live. Well streaming live has the only entries on a list anyway.

Thanks for looking at the log. I will mess around with it later & let you know if/how I get it going.

read the earlier posts in this thread - it looks like you need to be out of the US to sign up.
if you haven't signed up nothing will stream. Animal Planet is a premium channel and you will also need to buy a package from the site to see it. see ustvnow.com for details. i don't know of a way currently to only show services you are allowed to access.
there will be nothing in recordings until you make a recording!

Thanks for all of these awesome add-ons t0mm0, you have done a splendid job on them.
