    I thought there was no way to stream Cyclones.tv via Android. Tonight I was waiting at my daughter's guitar lesson and thought I could at least get a radio feed of the game on my phone. Against my better judgment (and despite negative reviews) I downloaded the $5 Neulion app from the play store. Next thing I know I'm watching live TV, UMKC vs. ISU. Am I the first or last to know this?

    I had the premium Android app and didn't know it would have live feeds. Good to know!

    Yep- it's worked for droid and apple for 2 yrs now. Replay video content is limited compared to online version though.

    Really, 3True, if you just want to wear the minimum amount of flare, that's okay, but here at CF there are posters who will go much farther just the bare minimum.

    You can watch it just fine on Android in your browser too. That's how I watched it tonight.

    Wow. To quote Jack Nicholson,"Don't I feel like the ****in' *** hole?"

    I knew there was an iPad app but I for some reason I was completely convinced there was no Android app for live video.

    ISU_phoria, I tried to watch it via chrome for android but it didn't work. What browser do you use?

    I watched the game in HD on the big screen with a feed from my laptop. My wife was wondering why there where cords running all over the place, but it worked great. Only stumbled a couple times. Much better than a couple years ago when Cyclone TV buffered more than it ran.

    All I get is "playback of this media is not supported" on my android phone. What else do I need to download to watch through the IE browser?

    Also, when you watch it on your app with Cyclone Fanatic running in the background your credits double!

    Check out chromecast for the at home setup. $35, no cords.

    Sorry, there's no hope for you:)

    I think we've discussed this before but I'm wondering how you are getting this to work. Mine will kinda work if I don't go full screen but even when it's the little window it's really choppy. Are you changing any settings in the video player or Chromecast?

    Haven't had to mess with settings at all. Start the video, hit the chromecast button in the upper right of your browser, then hit the FULL button. Make SURE you don't hit the pop-out button, this will open a new window that won't go to your chromecast unit.

    Beyond that, I am using the HDMI extension dongle that came with chromecast. It seemed to help with the wireless signal somewhat.
