Yeah they have been doing this for awhile now.

Not enough ppl complain about it to get a change done.

 

I think there's a perma-root app in the market that will let u in a sense unroot then u can reboot and go back to market download the movie, go back and reroot after....maybe?

Think its OTA rootkeeper....Or you can hand around xda or other sites as there likely will be moded playstore.apk that will bypass the root check.

I wouldn't be so quick to jump on Google's back. Does anyone know why they disallow it? It may have something to do w/ DRM and their contracts with content providers.

 

It's not DRM bc there are many ways to have the media DRM protected even on rooted devices. Makes no difference. It's all about the content providers as they are always the last to adapt and accept new things.

Yeah, I didn't even think about Netflix. That is available on all handsets, not just non-rooted ones. DRM was the reason it took so long to come to Android when it was on iOS for a long time.

Netflix as stated...

 

It's all about implementation and getting the big networks to agree...the later is always the toughest part as everyone is so scared of piracy though they will stream their shows on sites for home pc to capture just as easily....smh

Yup DRM was it, first it was only for devices that had it built in the chip itself but they evolved the app to have it in it itself or their streams have it directly.

Looks like it is "due to requirements related to copyright protection." Google should do a search using their own search engine and they will find pirate movies all over the place. As

And of course, I'd much rather steal movies streamed with a poor bitrate at a low resolution to my phone than use Google to search out any of the thousands of places where I could steal them using my computer.

I was to try out Inglorious Basterds that Google offered for a quarter.

 

One of my favorite, all time movies! It's dark...so you have to be in the right mood to watch it. But it's one of the few Brad Pitt movies I can stomach. "Killing Natzees!"

I am sorry if anyone is offended by the language but this was too funny of a rant not to share.

Not only funny, but I agree whole heartedly. I can watch Netflix on my rooted device. This is BS. I hope WebOS free source takes off.

Yeah it is total BS if you ask me. I hope this doesn't start a trend of things to come.

    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
    • Here are the new sites in the Toledo area from the last few years. All of these are Sprint conversions, and they still have a few more Sprint sites to convert
