Even with my tablet connected to my in home wifi the contour app thinks I am not on it and wont let me watch certain channels, I just signed up with cox again after leaving them 3 years ago and am regretting it already
Homelife camera not working, the wifi is pretty weak, the contour app is very feature lacking, just left dish but I am beginning to wish I had not, their app is far superior.
Why wont the contour app recognize that my tablet is connected to my wifi?
Thanks Kevin, I do appreciate it, but I must say I am curious, (not trying to sound like a Dish spokesman either) but with that app, there are no restrictions, no limits, the app connects directly to the box in one's home over the internet, and you can then watch anything, anywhere, anytime as long your device has cell service, anything you can see at home, you can watch anywhere, no "in home" restrictions, no fox regional restrictions, it is very nice, no additional apps needed,
I did not know prior to signing up with Cox again that the contour dvr is cloud based, generally speaking I am not a fan of cloud based tech, but that's a different discussion for a different time.
Thanks again for your reply, I look forward to someone reaching out to me about the camera, the smart bulb and door sensor work fine in the app, just the camera is the problem.
I will check out the article you linked on the wi-fi, and I did figure out the issue with the app, my email is tied to 2 different cox accounts, but the user name is different, my app was logged into the other account, so even though I was on my wi-fi, I was logged into the other account.
KevinM2...so how does one determine what hardware we have Cloud/hard? Does it show up on the bill. Is there a price difference and what are the other differences than Netflix and Utube? I don't use either option.
