    Ok, I believe if you already have 20.3.8 installed on your Premiere, and you connect to the TiVo Service a couple of times, then the next time you launch Netflix you will get the new experience.

    If you don't have 20.3.8 yet, you can still sign up at tivo.com/priority, but you might not get the update until January.

    It is on mine this morning as well! I'm still mostly using my TiVoHD these days and the NetFlix client that comes with it, so can't compare it really to the previous client on the Premiere. I would have like to have seen profile support on it, but otherwise it seems OK so far. Will take some more time to see whether I like it better than the TiVoHD version enough to switch to it.

    I just checked out the new interface, and I like it. More importantly, it's snappier, and as soon as I started to watch a show, I got 1080p/24 !!!

    So far, so good. IMO, definitely a huge improvement.

    Like the roamio version -

    no profiles yet....

    Still no ability to change zoom/full/panel mode from within the app.
    (zoom button seems to be exit button)

    seems to navigate well (much faster) and no problems streaming...

    With any luck, Profiles will come to the Roamio, Mini, and Premiere versions this week. (Fingers crossed.)

    That was weird. My kids are watching "Curious George" in the category of KIDS and after 3 videos. Netflix paused and faded with a question..

    Are you still there? YES Continue or NO.

    Ok.. I click YES and the video continues.

    Sounds like we are getting away from the endless video playback to eliminate are you still watching or did you walk away. Does this have to do with inaccurate data being collected by Nelson Ratings based on BINGE watching. Uh oh you mean some are not watching non-stop just forgot to hit TIVO to go back or went on to do an errand?

    Now that I have the new app, I have no idea how to get from watching a movie back to the menu. What key is it?

    Same here. Also unclear is how to quickly get back to the start of the movie -- I wanted to watch a movie that my son had previously watched, and the only option was "Resume". It took me to the closing credits, which were not very interesting.

    Expanding on all this, it's unclear what buttons on the Tivo peanut remote do anything inside the Netflix app. Would be great to get a help page on tivo.com that describes usage of the Tivo remote with Netflix. (Hey Margret, hint, hint... ;))

    On the Roamio, the new remote has a dedicated "Back" button. For Premiere's, I believe someone mentioned previously that the colored "B" button performs "back".

    The lack of a quick method to play from beginning is a global change to all Netflix apps. Only Netflix can answer why that option was removed.

    this still amazes me. The button integration is ridiculous. Up? Why not Left?

    Thanks. That works. The B button didn't do anything.

    Also, has anyone tried casting to the Tivo from their Netflix app?
    It starts Netfilx but times out because it takes too long to load because it asks me every time if I want Netflix or Kids.

    I believe "Zoom" will also work (needed on older remotes).

    I got the 20.3.8 update this morning, and connected a bunch of times (and rebooted a few) without getting the new Netflix. I was most curious as to how well it runs on Premiere, since I have it on my Roamio.

    I don't have a Roamio, but the Premiere version is much better. It still launches really slow, but once it comes up, it's fine. Visually, it's quite nice. I only wish it had profile support. My profile is all polluted with my husbands shows and it's really annoying. Currently it asks if you want Netflix or Kids, which is annoying because I don't have any profile set to kids and I don't want it to ask me.
