DirectTV now lets you stream video from your home, as long as you aren’t Jailbroken

DirectTV users can now do what Comcast, Time Warner and Optimum users can do – stream video in their homes to their iPads. The new 1.3.1 app (Free, iTunes) allows users to stream 40 channels of content…

Turn your iPad into a portable TV and watch your favorite shows in any room of your home.
- Quickly scroll through a list of channels available to watch on your iPad with a dedicated “Live TV Streaming” Module.
- Get tips in the help section to guide you through features in the app.
- Set parental controls to block live TV channels viewed on the iPad.
- Change start and end times to add padding to a program when setting a recording.

There is one caveat however. The new DirectTV doesn’t appreciate Jailbreakers and shuts down if it detects that it is being used on a Jailbroken device (below). Fix is here.
