AT&T not working for Live Podcast

I don't know if its my cellphone or the strenght of my AT&T signal but I have been having a heck of a time trying to watch the live podcast. I have a iphone 4 and have the old unlimited data plan before they changed to data limits. It seems to take forever to get going and yesterday when it finally came up I could hear the show but could not see it.

Does anyone have any helpful hints to be able to watch the show on my iphone? I can still look like I'm actually working at my job watching it on my phone as opposed to my computer screens.

As I type this I have 3 out of 5 bars of signal strenght and it is taking forever to load in yesterdays show on livestream. The same goes for when I try to watch the YouTube version.

Just an update from my first post on this thread.

It has taken me nearly 2 and a half hours to watch the hour long ladies only show from yesterday. I'm about ready to throw my iphone out the window

I guess I'll just have to start watching them from home and have to find something else to listen to or watch during work hours.

Someone in chat yesterday recommended an app called Swift Player. Among other things it lets you download videos from YouTube directly to your phone (it compresses them to within an inch of their lives, but still watchable). Dustin and I tested it out yesterday and it worked great. It's $2.99 for the app.

We are looking at ways to make the video shows downloadable, but we're not there yet. For now, this is a good alternative.

I had no trouble streaming the rebroadcast of the 2/5/2013 show on my iPhone 5 using AT&T. I used the livestream replay. Have you tried the youtube stream?

Thanks for the info Pete. I'll look into that.....

Would would really be nice is if my company (who shall remain nameless) would let us have access to the wifi. They currently only let visitors from other offices use it. The Starbucks nearby is not close enough to pick up their signal.

I think maybe its my phone, I have an iphone 4 that is several years old. It is slow sometimes with other apps and such. I did an update a few days ago so it has the latest software.

I did get the free livestream app but could not find The Dis channel so when I watch the show it opens up in Safari.

I wasn't aware there is a livestream app. I just watched it in Safari.

We do have LTE here and I had a strong signal (I was driving down the interstate while listening ). I haven't tried listening on my iPhone 4 because it is now wifi only.

I hope you have better luck with the next broadcast.

I watched in Safari and I have the app. Safari worked great sitting in MCO and on the plane. Safari worked great sitting in the Lobby of the GF on LTE.
