Last night, we had our maiden voyage of GBTV. Afterwards, I answered your questions about it. It's new--people had a lot of them. You can ask your question if it's not answered below right here. The questions are grouped into categories, in capital letters. Questions are in bold, answers are not.
HOW TO WATCH GBTV
Someone said they watched tonight on TV using a Roku wireless streaming box. Not sure what that is but it would be great if we didn't have to gather the family around my computer.
Yes, I have one and it's awesome. I watch Netflix, MLB.tv, and Amazon video on demand on it. They all work really well.
Thanks for the forum I enjoyed what I could but my signal wasn’t great so I missed most of the broadcast. Will GBTV be always available online as I don’t own a TV I truck across the us and Canada so all I have is my laptop.
Yes, GBTV will always be available on your laptop. Can you write GBTV in the dirt on the side of your truck to help with advertising?
Hi we watched GBTV tonight but there was continuous pausing, though it did improve towards the end of the program. Was that a glitch due to the solar flare, heavy traffic or something??
I had some issues as well. The important thing to remember about tonight is that it wasn't the MLB technology. When I use MLB.tv, I never have those issues, so we shouldn't see them on the final product.
Are you looking into Xbox360/PS3 options like Netflix and MLB NHL have.
We're working with a lot of developers to get GBTV on as many devices as possible. Nothing to add to the list at the moment, but stay tuned...
I am a technological moron. Can I just watch GBTV on my laptop or do I need to hook something up to my television?
Hello fellow moron. You can definitely watch on the laptop--no prob.
Will we be able to tune in at 6 lets say while the show is in progress but start from the beginning?
I believe so. That's how MLB.tv works, and they are the ones doing all of our technology for the project. They are the best in the business.
Where can we find out more about streaming to our TVs....the whole partnership with MLB, etc. I connected my laptop to my TV via HDMI cable tonight. Is that how I'm going to have to do it?
There are a bunch of other ways to do it. We'll have a full list posted as we get closer. You won't have to do it that way...
Will you make a how to video about how to watch GBTV using Roku and a TV?
We were talking about that today. I think yes. Hopefully SE Cupp will do it so it's actually watchable. Good thing about Roku is it's about the easiest thing I've ever hooked up to my TV. You'll like it a lot.
I signed up and clicked "Buy Now" and nothing happened. Even after a very long tme. Like 30 minutes.
Email support here: firstname.lastname@example.org They should be able to help.
EXISTING INSIDER AND INSIDER EXTREME MEMBERS
I am an Insider Member. Does my membership aurtomatically transfer over to GBTV?
Yes. You will automatically be moved over to GBTV. You'll get the TV show, plus the audio of the radio show like you have now, for a lower price. You can also always upgrade to GBTV plus for a little more if you want.
Do I get GBTV or GBTV Plus with my insider extreme membership ?
You will get GBTV Plus. Lots of new benefits for the same price.
Will the app for the iPhone also work on my iPod? P.S. We love you Stu!
Yes. I mean, not the old school white ones with no screens. But the iPod touch? Yes.
Any support for Apple TV?
From what I gather...Apple TV is still a closed ecosystem, there is no app store...
We will certainly try though...If you have an iPad, we hope to have the iPad app Airplay enabled, so you’d be able to watch the iPad feed on your AppleTV, even without a separate AppleTV app.
Will there be an "app for that"? On the iphone, droid, etc?
iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, definitely. Not sure on when we will have Droid quite yet.
WHAT PROGRAMMING WILL BE ON GBTV
Will we be able to see all of the Restoring Courage events on GBTV?
Yes, you will. All the planned events, and the ones Glenn decides he wants to do 10 minutes in advance.
Let's say im a disenfranchised libertarian with almost nowhere to go for my politics. Will GBTV help provide me with the reinforcement that only Judge Napolitano currently does?
Disenfranchised libertarian? Welcome home.
Will we be able to see some of the live shows Glenn has done, such as "Common Sense Comedy Tour", "The Christmas Sweater Live", "Broke Live", etc that aren't currently available on demand?
I'm not sure about the older shows that aren't currently posted, but I'll ask around. Everything we do on the road going forward will have GBTV elements to them.
This reality show won't have a hot tub, right?
If it doesn't, I won't be on it. (You’re welcome)
Stu, will your kid's live birth be televised on GBTV?
Not at this time. I will be performing a recreation set to music live on Broadway though.
Has there been any talk about having the social media be apart of the programming or the TV show, using live responses from Facebook or Twitter, etc?
Yes--there is a lot of really cool stuff coming on this front. Luckily, none of it has to do with pictures of Anthony Weiner.
Hi Stu can we sign up now for GBTV, and if we can will be all set for the launch on 9-12, or do we sign up around the launch date? Thanks.
You can sign up right now at GBTV.com. You'll get a lot of great stuff this summer like the Restoring Courage events in Israel, a behind the scenes reality show, dozens of hours of documentaries on demand, plus the radio show and the 4th hour etc. It's definitely worth it, and discounted if you sign up now until the whole network starts.
Will we be able to get GBTV on demand or will we be limited to on air time schedules. Will episodes be archived for future viewing? Will David Barton have his own program? I am blown away by the depth and breath of Glenn's vision and commitment!!!
On demand--Yes. There is a lot of stuff going on with David Barton, though nothing official to announce yet.
Is Glenn's radio show going to be on GBTV right away?
Yes--the radio show, along with the 4th hour with me and Pat will be on GBTV right away. Also, the way it’s presented will be changing as well in some really cool ways.
Will it be all news type shows or something more?
It will have a lot more than just news. Of course, he'll change it 20 times before it starts, but it will have the best of the Fox News show, and a lot of other stuff he's wanted to do for a while.
When will Jeffy get his own show?
Will the GBTV launch be repeated for those that missed it?
Yes--posted already: HERE
Will you get your own show? The Stu Show? I can't get enough Stu.
Well, there's the 4th hour, with Pat and I...Pat and me? Me and Pat? That's on everyday on GBTV.com. I need no more work.
Any thought given to the next comedy tour show, maybe a pay-per-view so that those of us you never come see in Georgia can sit at home and watch it in our underwear?
Yes, a lot of these will be available on GBTV. Are you Anthony Weiner?
Will you be able to watch previous shows if you missed them at the time they are broadcast?
Yes, they will all be available on demand, whenever you like, for 30 days afterwards.
Is there a place we can donate to all the things Glenn is creating?
Ummmm...Yes. GBTV.com. Sign up, then give gift memberships to everyone you know.
Actually, there will be a lot more detail on the charity side of things as well as they develop...stay tuned.
Ever wonder what's wrong with Pat? Hates NY pizza? It's sacrilege.
How come you don't answer my question?
Some of the questions you've all asked I need to ask smart people to get answers on. But I'll try to get to as many as possible....
What about those of us who are losing jobs, taking pay cuts, paying crazy prices to exist every day....and who are not going to make another monthly payment to watch Glenn? I DVR the show and watch it every day, but not at a monthly rate. Sorry!
Understandable. Glenn fought hard to get the lowest price point of $4.95 to keep it as cheap as possible. But I'll be honest with you--this stuff costs a fortune and we have to pay for it somehow...unless...maybe Geithner gives us the keys to the printing presses or something? Anyone friends with Timmy G that can get us hooked up?
So, with the reach out in books, movies, and tv, when is the record label coming?
Soon after GBGC, his new greeting card company. Or something.
I'm guessing the "other, bigger studio" that is being built is in TX ... any word on that?
No official word on that. Don't ask Glenn...because he'll tell you.
