  1. Cablevision’s app is pretty good, but one thing that I’ve heard a lot of is that customers wish that they were able to stream outside of their home. From my experience using a similar service called Dish Online on my Mac, I have seen that there really aren’t any computer apps that allow you to watch TV freely. Dish Online lets me watch live TV or recorded shows on my laptop, and I don’t even have to be at home. Just the other day on lunch, a few co-workers at Dish and I were watching the latest episode of Saturday Night Live right on my laptop. I’m sure Cablevision’s app is really good, but I think the lack oof remote streaming is holding the app back.
