This was promised?

Believe me, I want DLNA Play-From functionality as much as anybody.  I unhooked my PS3 to hook up the XBox One, only to have to eventually hook it back up so I could stream my movies off my Home Server.  (I have a toddler who has psychosis-level obsession with Disney's Cars & Planes, and I really don't want to have to load the discs)

But this was actually PROMISED at launch?  I know DLNA compliance was promised, but haven't they technically fulfilled that promise with Play-To?  I downloaded the Skifta app, and yes, it works impressively.  But another device in the chain just seems inefficient.

I guess my question is...  Is there any kind of comment from the XBox Team to indicate this will be offered as a future app?  (Again, I want this BAD.  The expectation of support was the sole reason for choose to switch to the XBox.)

if people want it someone will make an app for it to either make a name for themselves (as a free app) or make money (as a paid app). i would give it a few months and you wills tart to see lots of apps. while 1m consoles is a lot of consoles, its not a lot of users for an app developer. i think around the 5m mark you will start seeing app development really pick up.

Apps and indie games should start showing up next year. They haven't had a lot of time to mess with the development kit yet.
