ChannelsDVR has free channels available from various internet streams that are added to any TVE sources. Channels Support - TV Everywhere. However, these particular streams (channels 6700 - 6999) do not require subscription to any service provider.
I am proposing that under TV Everywhere beta that for a provider there be "None - Freely Available" that opens up only these channels. These are live tv streams that are freely available to anyone. It seems needing a provider subscription is unnecessary.
Yes, these channels could be setup as Custom Channels as demonstrated with Accuweather Channel - #10 by Absenm recently. However, this feature would simplify the process for customers as they are already curated by ChannelsDVR.
The obvious use case here would be for customers who do not have a service provider and only use OTA devices and/or custom channels.
I mentioned this in another thread, but it is best discussed as a feature request. Again, this is just a nice friendly "feature" request. Please be kind.
