    My FREE Tivo Stream I got with my Roamio is still sitting it the box.....

    When is Android support going to be added?

    Will Tivo announce it this week?

    Only news so far is some prototype that will never happen... http://www.engadget.com/2014/01/07/tivo-network-dvr-prototype/?ncid=rss_truncated

    1) when with Stream support android?
    2) how much are you going to double charge us yet again for the Android app?
    3) why are your engineers so slow?

    The "show" doesn't really start until tomorrow and lasts all week, so you are going to have to be a little more patient!

    You were charged for the Android app?

    The proper question is: why did it take Android so long to support HLS streaming protocol?

    I am still betting only devices with the most recent Android update (HLS Protocol) are going to be supported and the Android guys on this forum are going to lose their minds!

    I will be shocked if they support anything less then Android 4.0 and it wont surprise me if they actually require 4.2+

    Although there is a 3rd party HLS SDK available for Android that supports older versions, so there is a small amount of hope that they licensed that and will support older versions. But I doubt it.

    Sadly, I couldn't wait. Dropped some coin on an iPad Mini just for this feature ... Samsung tablet has not left the backpack since.

    Wow. You sound kind of screwed up in the head. Not to mention your poor grammar. With an attitude like that you'll probably have a coronary while you wait...

    Well, I was ready to buy at least one Roamio Pro, possibly even two.

    I've already spent a few thousand dollars on Tivo hardware based on their "coming soon" promise - it is time for them to start apologizing, make Android support a priority, announce a date, and deliver it. There is absolutely no excuse for how long "coming soon" has taken.

    Really? I know some people take their hardware/software platforms seriously - but that's a little over the top.

    Something sucks. I know because I will never touch it.

    When I was a kid my parents convinced me that pizza tasted bad so I never tried it.

    You are adding nothing to the conversation. Both platforms have their place, I run both. To summarily discount half the market without ever using it shows your ignorance on the topic.

    I never said I have not used it in the past.

    In fact, I have developed an iOS app that is in the Apple store.
    My experience with Mac Mini/ ipod Touch/apple co. has turned me so off of everything apple. I have long sold all apple products.

    Are you crazy!? Don't you realize this whole forum was taken over by apple fanboys? Any complaint about TiVo's failure to live up to its promise to support android is taken as a direct challenge to their entire view of the universe, which of course centers around all things apple. Oops, sorry, sorry, I mean Apple. With a capital A.

    All hail Jobs.

    Any news about stream for android release date? These posts tend to trail off to pages and pages of useless crap between apple and android that no one really cares about.

    Nope, no news. Nothing since, I think, last Fall when they identified a vague early 2014 date. But I would think that, if it was close, they would have said something at CES.
