In my view, there doesn't even need to be an app; I'd be more than OK if I could watch via a browser.   But the fact that I can't watch my recorded DVR content on my PC is ludicrous.    It shouldn't be that hard.....

Does any other provider have that option?

If not, there may be legal issues as to why not.

And with quantum DVR, you do have access to contents via other devices.

I have heard you can stream to ps4.

And supposedly with the right streaming software, can do with PC.

I work from home and usually stream either Live TV or watch what is on my DVR - which was easy to do with Xfinity. Now, that I'm back with Verizon, the interface SUCKS and I can't watch anything from my DVR on my computer (I have a PC and Mac)??!! WTH! Verizon has touted "Watch TV from any device." Well, Macs and PCs are devices and should have been a no-brainer to be able to access content on my DVR. Also, why do I have constantly get pushed out to another window if I want to watch other channels, like CBS, ABC, which requires you to log-in (again) to access their sites! I should never have to leave the Verizon site if I'm streaming these other channels which I have paid for through Verizon. FIX THIS NOW!!

This is what I use on my PC:

If you are on windows 10, there is a workaround for Windows Media Player so that you can use this card on Windows 10 machines.

There is the

Which is is the alternative that should be agnostic to whether you have an all-in-one, a tower, or a laptop.

 

The workaround for Windows 10 is the same as with the previously mentioned device as well.
