"Hey TNT Crew!

I am a long time listener and wanted to comment regarding ""pulling the plug"" and ditching the cable box for an a-la-carte device such as a Roku or Apple TV. I was curious if anyone has ever tried doing a mobile application for the device, and if so what were the results?

One of my clients owns a local limo company and wanted to install a Roku with an attached mifi device in lieu of a Satellite dish in his limo. I haven't really heard much regarding any mobile applications for the Roku, but I would assume this would work taking into consideration cell reception and tiered data pricing.

I think if successful, this might also be a great marketing tool for Roku to release a battery powered version for people on the go; especially with such a low price point! Just a thought.

Keep up the great work!

PS - What better way to find out than to give it a try. My Roku is on order. : )
