you have to logon to facebook to see that - any chance of copying the text here?
Maybe they are trying to get prime videos to be allowed for download to TiVo. Or maybe they will finally update the Amazon application. It's the only implementation of Amazon that I know of that doesn't let you see your video library from the TiVo so it needs updating any way (along with YouTube, Netflix, etc).
I will try

Any news on if/when Tivo will support the new Amazon Prime Instant streaming service? And, just as importantly, will it be available on the Tivo HD or Series 3 platform?

MZ MegaZone Technologically I don't know of a reason why they couldn't support the streaming service just like the downloads on all three platforms (S3/HD/Premiere).
Hmm, check out http://www.amazon.com/gp/video/ontv/ontv - not that the TiVo logo is in ...the list of devices with instant support. Then note the asterisk and "*Prime instant videos are not currently available on TiVo devices." But it seems implied that they will be.See More
Tuesday at 12:51pm.Bill Blackwell When do we get this? Seems like a big miss not to have this at launch.
Tuesday at 1:16pm.MZ MegaZone I'm guessing it requires and update to the client on the TiVo so, at the least, it is tied to TiVo's update cycle.
Tuesday at 5:07pm.TiVo TiVo is working with Amazon on this. No details regarding timing are available now, but we do plan to have this available in the future.

if it was my project to run I would be looking to come up with some framework that would allow BROWSING of either Netflix or Amazon for streaming titles.
I would think the current Tech would allow to add in Streaming Amazon titles to TiVo search and you get them but the TiVo search is just not the same kind of fun as say Netflix on a gaming console where you can browse various genres by moving rows of DVD box covers around
God forbid you should actually have to log on somewhere to see content from there.
I used Amazon Prime instant videos to start watching the MI-5 series last night. Works great. Of course, that's on both my Panasonic 3D Blu-ray player and through my Panasonic 3D plasma display, using Viera Cast, not via a TiVo device.
My new TV (Samsung UN55C6800) is Internet enabled. I never thought I would use that feature, but I may have to actually read the manual and figure out how to turn it on. I have Prime, so I'd like to see how well this works.
I'm very happy with "TiVo and TV", and have never Netflix'ed or VOD or any of that stuff. But I'll at least check this out.
Another reason not to ever buy hardware expecting things to work in the future. No Hulu still and now I'm disappointed the Amazon prime video isn't included. I almost bought a second TiVo premiere last week assuming this service would work.
Some people don't like logging into Facebook, because once you do, you stay logged in when you visit other sites.
On these other sites, if there are "Like" buttons present, Facebook can track your habits and collect your web history.
I suppose if you don't mind giving away this information, then by all means, bow down to your Facebook overlords.
Not to mention, some people (gasp) don't have a Facebook account, and (double gasp) don't want one.
This isn't the first negative. TiVo's implementation of Amazon Video On Demand also does not include the following features:
1. Your Video Library
2. Ability to view previews or trailers of available titles
Your Video Library enables you to easily access previously purchased content.
These are two negatives, and now the no Prime streaming is a third. There are probably more that I haven't thought of.
I have a FB account - but was at work and do not like logging on to FB at work, FB leaves too much of a trail I would rather keep on a home PC.
Also we have plenty of TCFers who do not have FB accounts and I, unlike you with your rude threadcrap, was thinking of them and hoping LessD could simply copy and paste the relevant part. LessD did that with no problem.
and no the smiley did not make it all better for me
Ever tried those anonymous modes of your browser that won't leave anything behind beyond the current session?
And it wasn't a rude threadcrap, your nasty little comment was a threadcrap.
I think there will be some confusion for new customers who find they can't stream amazon content, similar to the $99/$19.99 promotion.
Actually, the "God forbid you should actually have to..." part? Yeah, that was a little rude.
Perhaps it was the somewhat constant [tired-of-endless-paranoia-over-perceived-privacy-issues] that one has to endure around here (usually via controversy over free-to-register-but-registration-required sites like www.nytimes.com) that led me to be more sarcastic than might've been worthy for the original comment (i.e, I read more into it than was actually written). But it really wasn't rude. And as generally evidenced by the smiley accompanying it, was certainly not intended to be. That he should've actually then gone out of his way to interpret it as rude is the problem. Perhaps he's just having a bad day. God knows if I had to work someplace where I had to be paranoid about visiting Facebook to read something, especially if I didn't have to be paranoid about visiting TCF to know I needed to visit Facebook to read something, I'd probably have a lot of bad days, too.
We'll disagree, then.
You see the world through a decidedly different lens than the rest of us.
I'm going to have to decide between a new separate box (Roku, Boxee) or a blu-ray player that has the apps I would like to have (Amazon VOD prime streaming), Hulu plus, Last.FM or Pandora).
I'm not sure Tivo will ever "get" it.
I see the world. You see the world through some kind of lens.
I'm rubber and you're glue.
