    Cyclones.tv on the xbox

    So I tried a week or so ago to get the live stream of the cyclones.tv on my tv by using the web browser on the xbox. That fails because it won't let you download and install flash. So tonight I was thinking about it again and decided to email Neulion. I realize that Iowa State can't realistically (or who knows...maybe I'll email JP again...don't steal my idea!) get an app created for the xbox and I'm having a hard time finding any media player that will support the flash stream. Neulion has hundreds of "channels" or whatever you want to call them.

    Here was what I wrote.
    Good evening,


    I am a writing as a subscriber to cyclones.tv. I was wondering if there is any plans to create an application for the xbox for Neulion. With media players for your tv unable to play flash content, we are stuck hooking up a pc or laptop to our tv anytime we want to view content. I think this would be a great opportunity to get some exposure and also a benefit to all of your clients that use your technology. The trend of flash players is going away with lack of support for android now. I don't know how your company derives it's revenues, but I would think creating an application for the xbox would be a great way to increase exposure and use. I know there are a ton of people who would subscribe to the premium content if they had an easy way to get it on their tvs. And if you could just log on to your account via the app and view the content for which you are authorized that would be amazing, and give your company a shot at having the users subscribe to other "channels" or content.


    If I am missing something, please let me know if there is an easier way to access your service through the tv. Are there any plans to change the format (not flash) of your streams so that other devices can more easily play them?


    Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thoughts? Some of you hate Neulion but my biggest beef is that it's flash and not supported on everything. IF they were to create an app or at least have some sort of player that could work on media players or non flash websites, this would be awesome and certainly curtail some of the complaining about always having to hook up the laptop to the computer.

    This whole thing is made harder because Flash is a dying software. The new android updates won't let you install flash either. I was thinking about getting a Roku box for my father but he does have Mediacom that idea is out. I think we'll just have to wait until one of these devices or ISU writes some apps for these devices. Than again maybe they don't wont to write a flash app just to have it out of date in very little time.

    Greetings,

    Thank you for taking the time to email NeuLion Fan Support. We appreciate your interest in offering the college content on alternative platforms but at this time the only way to utilize those services would be through a computer. We will be happy to forward along your request to have alternative means of accessing the service in the future.

    Thank you,
    Aric

    NeuLion Fan Support
    So pretty much FU by them.

    If Xbox picked it up and PS3 didn't, that would be the end of the console debate on this site forever.

    Flash isn't dying in some areas, at this point anyways. Who Still Uses Flash Video? Just About Everybody - Streaming Media Magazine


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Dude spells "Eric" with an "A?" Sounds like an esshole.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
