A few more ways to extend your CNBC live streaming video viewing options on iPhone, iPad, Android Phone, or Android Tablets
There's another method you can use to view live streaming cnbc video on your mobile device and that is to use your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet as a pass-through device. We mentioned in our previous articles that you can get live streaming CNBC on your computer using Power E-Trade Pro or ThinkOrSwim. If you use either of those apps, you can use remote desktop software such as LogMeIn or GoToMyPC to pass the desktop signal from your computer to your phone or Tablet. LogMein offers apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android. GoToMyPC offers apps only for iPad (sorry iPhone and Android users).
We tried passing a live streaming CNBC signal from ThinkorSwim running on a PC to the LogMeIn app on our 4G LTE Motorola Xoom (yes, I just got mine back from Motorola - the Xoom users out there will know what I'm talking about). The CNBC video and audio streamed perfectly on the Motorola Xoom using the 4G LTE (cellular) connection. We also tried the same thing with our Xoom using WiFi and we also got an excellent streaming signal for CNBC using ThinkOrSwim running remotely.
In addition to passing the CNBC live streaming signal from ThinkorSwim, we also tried using the LogMein app to pass a live streaming CNBC signal from Power E-Trade Pro running on a remote computer to the Motorola Xoom (Android Tablet), an HTC Droid Incredible (Android Phone), an iPhone, and an iPad. Each of these methods worked very well while streaming CNBC live from Power E-Trade Pro. However, we have to wonder why you would use this pass-through method for Power E-Trade Pro when you can just run the native Power E-Trade Pro app on all of those devices. Streaming to the native app is much better and you should see very little stuttering on it compared to using a pass-through method. For ThinkorSwim users who want to watch their live streaming CNBC on their iPhone, iPad or Android tablet, they will have to use some pass-through software like LogMeIn since there is no native ThinkorSwim app for iPhone, iPad, Android, or Blackberry.
Another option for getting CNBC live streaming video on your phone or tablet is CNBC Pro, which is available as an app for Android and Blackberry devices (there currently does not seem to be a version available for Apple iPhone or iPad yet). With CNBC Pro, you can stream live CNBC video directly to your Android or Blackberry, with no specific brokerage relationship required. All that is required is a direct subscription to CNBC Pro, which will also allow you to stream live CNBC video to your computer as well as your Android or Blackberry device.
For Time Warner Cable users, there is another option available. Time Warner Cable currently offers an iPad app for watching your cable channels remotely. Therefore, if your cable lineup includes CNBC (which it probably does) you can pass the signal to your iPad and watch live streaming CNBC that way. There is currently no option for iPhone or Android phones and tablets as far as we can tell. Blackberry users of course do not get a Time Warner Cable app either.
To use the LogMeIn method, you will need the following components. LogMeIn Pro costs about $70 per computer. This piece allows you to pass the video and audio signal from a single computer to any number of other computers or devices. On each device, you will need LogMeIn Ignition, which runs $30 per device. This piece allows you to receive the signal and there are versions available for iPad, iPhone, Android phones, and Android tablets.
Using these methods, you should be able to get CNBC live streaming video on your PC, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, or Android phone or tablet.
