DirecTV puts Audience Network on iPads

First TV Everywhere effort available out of home

DirecTV will make its own channel, Audience Network, available for streaming live via iPad in or out of the home, the satcaster announced Wednesday.

The channel will launch with the airing of tonight’s finale of the series “Damages.” The livestreaming will extend to the iPhone next month and come to Android devices by year-end.

Audience Network is exclusive to DirecTV subs, with programming unavailable to other pay-TV providers. Upcoming originals include late-night sports-talk series “The Nick and Artie Show,” which bows in October.

While many pay-TV providers have been making an increasing number of its channels available on tablets via apps, but that availability is typically restricted to inside the home. DirecTV already offers in-home live-streaming of dozens of channels.
