When DirectTV started teasing an iPhone app
about a year ago our interests were certainly piqued -- and then disappointed when it was revealed it would only allow remote scheduling
. When the Android version came along
we got our hopes up again for remote streaming of content, but again got them dashed again. Now Rogers is doing the disappointing, launching the charmingly titled "Remote PVR Access from your Bell Smartphone" in Canada just before the Olympics on February 12, though it's unclear right now which smartphones will be covered. It too allows remote scheduling of content and, sadly, not remote viewing. Some day we'll get our wish -- some day.
