    I'm seeing the modern/current Amazon interface on my Roamio this morning. I actually had to pause to remember if it was different since I've seen it on other devices previously ;p

    Nice. Looks like my TV, Blu-ray and Roku 3 now.

    I wonder if it helps with access to the add-on content. (Wasn't that an issue?)

    edit: p.s. I do see they have an easily-accessible "Amazon Channels" row.

    p.p.s. Hmmm... I also very much like the prominently displayed "[D] Filtering by..." option, allowing you to refresh the view to just show the "included with Prime" content.

    Was this after the RC13 update?

    Yes it seems related.
    I used Amazon yesterday with old interface, installed RC13 last night before going to bed.

    Finally! I'm shocked that Amazon actually updated their TiVo app. Just checked it out on my Roamio. It's still a little pokey but a definite improvement overall from the old version.

    But if it's true that they failed to include UHD content in the updated Bolt app, that's pretty sad. The device has been out, what, 15 months and still no UHD support from Amazon (or VUDU)?!

    Remember what had been previously communicated. The Amazon add-on would be a separate subscription from your existing AcornTV account.

    Vudu is just starting to add more UHD app support. They did state they will have a new TiVo app out shortly They had an exclusive deal with with Vizio for awhile

    Amazon is the worst with UHD apps. They want you to buy a fire TV

    I had to contact Amazon, apparently you have to subscribe to whichever channel you want through Amazon, so, guess I'll just keep my Roku until TiVo gives me an option like they do with Netflix.

    I haven't received .13 yet. Is the pause button delay better in the updated app? Seems like I can count to 3 before it pauses playback. Netflix is nearly instant.

    My Bolt has RC13 today, but there has been zero change to my Amazon app - still looks exactly like it did yesterday, and I still have many video freezes while playing.

    Maybe not related to 13, just coincidence

    Looks like it's not related to the RC13 update as our Roamio Pro which still has RC7 has the new Amazon interface.
