When can customers expect the ability to stream the content that we pay for to the devices that we would like to view it on? From what I can tell, the only way to access content from HBO on a mobile device is through the Freerange app, however the Freerange app does not include a streaming option and explicitly blocks screen mirroring. However, HBO allows streaming to devices through its own app, HBO Go. But HBO Go isn't available to Canadians. This doesn't make any sense to me. Why restrict the streaming functionality?

If the intent is that customers are meant to pirate the content in order to actually be able to watch it in the way they would like to, this would certainly be a great way to encourage it. If other alternative ways to access our content on streaming devices are available, it would be great to hear them. Thanks.
