Try the latest build.

Getting further. Now it shows the company login window with the error: encountered exception 'Uncaught' (89:43)

I need the full logs and the screenshot. Email it to [email protected]

OMG @tmm1 !!!! IT WORKS!!!
Damn, you're awesome! When posted the question yesterday I didn't really think you would go and work on it right away. You had this thing working in less than 24h and now I have access to all Disney-owned channels. Thanks A LOT!!!! Will renew my Channels subscription right away.

Sorry it was working yesterday after @MB_NYC helped me test over email, but then I forgot to post here and let you know =)

How do I get access to this pre release software? I have the iOS beta but I don't have the pre release on the actual DVR server accessed through the web.

Click and hold the Check For Update button.

I am new to Channels and just signed up after I saw this since I am also a Disney employee. We get access to FX networks and ABC as well but I do not see them listed. I also have an account for CBS All Access. I was really hoping that this would be a way for me to not have to app-swap. Is it possible to use Channels in this way?

ABC: We don't support local channels via our TVE feature.

CBS: All-access is a separate CBS product and doesn't work with our TVE code.

FX: I went to https://fxnow.fxnetworks.com/watch-live/ and do see the Walt Disney option there. Will check out why its not working in the DVR.

For FX/NGC, update to the latest DVR build in approximately 20 minutes. On the DVR web UI, click-and-hold the Check For Update button. After that, click pencil icon under Walt Disney then Edit at the top right, scroll down to FX and click rescan.

Thanks for the quick response. Is there a future where ABC/CBS will be available? Or is it just something that cannot be done? Like I said - a one-stop shop rather than app hopping would be awesome.

BTW - I am really liking what you guys have done. Great work!

Getting 2019.10.09.0040 right now. :crossed_fingers:

Got em. And I forgot about Nat Geo channels too! Thanks! :+1:

For ABC and CBS, you can use Locast.org ($55/year) if you install the DVR Beta and live in a supported market. That Locast subscription will also get you all other major (and many minor) OTA channels in your market.

I already get ABC and CBS thru work and All Access. I was hoping that I would be able to set those channels up. I don't really want to pay another fee. At the rate it is going I am working my way back up to the same amount of money I was paying for satellite :disappointed:

Local stations are not available through TV Everywhere (generally). If that ever changes I’m betting Channels will support them within days.

You can get them for free with a good antenna, at higher quality than TVE or cable. And then you don't need to app-hop; Channels becomes a 'one-stop shop'.

I do have an antenna, but I am guessing the way to get them to work with Channels is via HD HomeRun, right?

Right. I have the HDHomeRun Quattro (4 tuners) which works well. There is also a 2 turner version.

There's a setting available in the latest build to add ABC (if ABC provides a live stream in your area). See Experimental: Local Networks (NBC, ABC, FOX) in some major metros via TVE
