    So Homeland’s ratings will go up and everyone will continue to boast about how great it is.

    I have Directv and Showtime and just registered for Anytime. It’s okay. Series-wise, they only have current shows and the movie selection is pretty limited. It needs a little time to grow.

    VIDEO PLAYBACK FAILED! I see that more often than not. What is wrong with this app, and why can’t you fix it?
