    So you mean it is exactly the same as EVERY third-party TiVo "app"; Netflix, Youtube, AOL, etc. This is no surprise to me at all.

    No Radio-No Use.
    What the hell, what a waste. Radio makes it useless.
    What are these guys on drugs? Forgot the option?
    Explain this to me?
    Stupid not to be added?
    What the f..
    What is that extra tooooooo?
    is that premium plus? Do we have to pay Tivo to add radio?
    Why bother?
    Did the executive from Blackberry do this project?
    Hey what is happening here?
    Anyone care to explain?
    Any ETA on this 2021?

    We all have bad days. I'm having one today. More sleep might help. Try it.

    Relax! This update has to be the stupidest addition yet!
    They did us a favor-NOT.

    Relax-appreciate the advice, but stupidity drives me nuts.
    A useless waste of space on my menu.
    What is Tivos problem?
    This is a totally useless addition. Looks like back to Pandora!
    Pandora rules!!!
    Common sense Tivo!

    Chill! Conversation is nuance.
    TiVo is a DVR.
    A device that you can use.
    Why is the front black?
    That is a silly option. Resembles an elephant.
    Linux rules!!!
    Trix are for kids!

    I've been waiting for Spotify on the Tivo for some time now, I use it in moderation on my computers but not a mobile device. I may try to 30 day free trial on Premium, has any upgraded to that just because of the Tivo access?

    I like Pandora on my Tivo now, so if it is similar I may shell out the $9.99 a month.

    I tried spotify premium for a month but it didn't do anything that rhapsody doesn't already do better. As a long time rhapsody user, I see no reason to switch at this point. No slide remote support is especially painful. I really don't see why anyone would prefer spotify over rhapsody.

    I've been a premium Spotify user for awhile (I like listening to it via mobile in the car), so I was glad to see it in TiVo. Right off the bat, I notice that my playlists are backwards. I generally jump to my Starred list where what I want to listen to is at the top. On TiVo, I've got to page down one entry at a time through several hundred songs. I suppose I'll have to create reverse playlists just for TiVo. If anyone else is using this, do you experience the same?

    Wow-the more I look into the Spotify Application the more useless this is!If Tivo developed the application they should be embarrassed for putting absolutely no thought into making this useable.
    It certainly looks like it is TIVOs brainchild because it does not follow the application they have on their products.
    Brought up no radio!

    What NO SHUFFLE? You have to be kidding me! Who in gods name would use this to play music. If I wanted random play since there is NO RADIO I can not. My only option is to start from my playlist and manually move to songs.

    What an idiotic way to set up this program.

    What am I the only one that finds this useless to use?
    No continuation-no variety-no nothing- no common sense with this application!!!

    Guess I will have to plug in my iphone and use Spotify with my entertainment center.
    DO NOT WASTE $9.99 to upgrade to Spotify if this is the only way to use it!
    Spotify should block this application- it hinders its marketing of "Premium" upgrade!!!!!

    Go talk to Spotify. If tivo wrote it, it would work more like their core app. Same as netflix, youtube, ect.

    I find it useless too, but I find most apps useless, so I don't use them.
