    That's what I get for assuming. Apparently the app isn't yet available on Samsung blu-ray players according to the TWC website:

    "TWC TV® is supported on 2012 and 2013 model Samsung Smart TVs (LED and plasma) in series: 550, 5300, 5500, 6100, 6150, 6300, 6350, 6400, 6500, 6550, 6580, 6900, 7000, 7003, 7100, 7150, 7500, 7550, 8000, 8500, 9000 and S9. Note: Samsung Blu-ray disc players are not currently supported"

    I saw that. I was hoping, after seeing your post, that they just hadn't updated the list.

    I wonder what is so different about the Blu-Ray Smart TV vs one built into the TV? I'm pretty underwhelmed by the whole Smart TV thing.

    Now for the not-so-great news. Got my Roku set up with the TWC TV app /channel. Hooray, all seasons of Homeland, including the pilot are available on Demand. It works BUT no captions or subtitles on the Roku version. They are available on the PC, and iPad versions. Haven't tried the Android version yet.

    The Smart TV thing is still a work in progress. It will be at least several more years (if ever) before Smart TVs are where they need to be. If Samsung and other Smart TV manufacturers were doing their jobs properly, there would be no need for devices like Roku.

    My Samsung 5500 TV has replaced my Roku 3. It's dual-core Samsung CPU runs over 1000 apps including latest Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO Go, Vudu, MGo, YouTube, PLEX, ESPN, FIOS TV, XFinity TV, TWC TV and of course Tetris.

    It's what the Roamio should be in a few years.

    ESPN? Are you sure? The last time I checked there was a WatchESPN app for my Roku that I use but not one for my Samsung Smart TV. ESPN's website does not show the app as being available on Samsung Smart TVs.

    My point being that no single device is able to do it all, at least not yet.

    Any updates on whether Time Warner will have On Demand available for Tivo? Comcast does it, as well as others. Unfortunately, the merger won't be of help, because I am in one of the areas that will be "Spun off."

    Unless they are forced to do this, nobody expects TWC to ever build this out. They are as anti-Tivo as it gets.

    Well, maybe they are headed in a different direction now and will be more TIVO friendly. With the ROKU app, the Samsung TV App, etc., they seem to be willing to be the provider, not the box supplier.

    Suddenlink's rental TIVO has just been announced and has on demand available.

    I pretty much agree, my Samsung Smart TV has everything I want and need, and is faster than my Premiere or Roku, it even has the latest HTML5 version of HuluPlus.

    I'm more fearful that with a purchase it will cause TW policies to be implemented at Comcast.

    TW does not rent rokus, but they do rent DVRs.
