Some are seriously waiting anxiously for Hulu+ and the privilege of paying a monthly fee for crappy selection AND commercials? I would much, much prefer an update to the Netflix HME application personally.

I already pay the monthly fee for Hulu+. I would just rather use the TiVo or Boxee Box to watch Hulu+ on. UNfortunately neither of those have Hulu+ yet so I have to continue using the PS3.

It all comes down to how you use it. HULU+ may not be for you but some like myself find value in to each their own. It is about TIVO following up on what they promised. If it is making the HD menus work or adding HULU+. The addition on HULU+ is one of the many reasons I went with a TIVO since I already use it. I could care less about the HDUI because I don't use it. My TIVO doesn't have many of the other problems since I don't. The Netflix isn't slick but it is usable and fairly reliable.

In the same boat... Been paying for Hulu+ since I got my tivo in Nov. and its still not here. I've been viewing Hulu+ on PS3 but would MUCH prefer to do it all with Tivo. Still no expected date?

It is surprising that it has not been released yet. I had expected it by now.

I get Hulu+ on my Sony KDL-46NX810 and my Blu-ray S470. TiVo has dropped the ball on this one. As of now it seems as if we have been mislead. A sales ploy to sell Premieres. Does/did TiVo ever intend on getting Hulu+. Doesnt matter anymore. Unitl the say they will have other features "coming soon" on new hardware/other products..that people may not buy because they feel duped or out right lied to!

Duped and lied to! Strong words for a product that did not have the feature when you purchased it. And when it does come to Tivo... will you say that you were just impatient?

Oh no! Here is Fofer and his.... the sky is falling attitude. The world is going to end soon if TiVo does not have Hulu Plus.... I think not. It's going to be okay. TiVo will get Hulu Plus soon and then everyone will wonder why there was this thread calling TiVo out for not getting it done before Roku.

But that's why we're here, in this thread, to complain about it. This makes us feel better. I'm not looking for therapy. Just looking to vent. If this sort of chatter doesn't interest you, why are you in the thread? It's clearly labelled. Just ignore it.

I have fun with you folks that complain that the sky is falling. It's just funny to see the things that people think are important. The world really does have better things to worry about.

You clicked on the thread and read it, so apparently it is of some importance to you. Saying that it's silly to discuss a certain topic after you've been the one discussing it is, well, kind of silly.

So you're saying that Magnus just lied when he said "I have fun with you folks that complain that the sky is falling. It's just funny to see the things that people think are important. The world really does have better things to worry about. " Because you somehow have knowledge that he read and participated in the discussion because he cares about the subject and not because he knows there is humor in the whining that people do so much of in these forums?

Is this your first day in the internet?

A topic being of "some importance to you" and "caring about the subject" are not necessarily the same thing. The topic could have some importance to him precisely because he finds some comedic value in it.

Is this your first day in reading comprehension?

I agree, it is funny. It's obvious these threads are important to you and I find that funny. Of course the world really does have better things to worry about, which is exactly why you are out worrying about them, right?

Not everyone has the same requirements in streaming/recording/TV as others may have. Some of you are paying huge amounts for Cable channels that I personally think is ridiculous, while I find extreme value in Amazon Prime Streaming, Netflix, Hulu, and net-based streams through PlayOn.

I added an extra $35 (cable+tivo sub) a month bringing the TiVO into my house and am now weighing the cost of abandoning the service because I am not yet convinced (myself, I am not seeking convincing from this forum) in a given time based on the (anecdotal) history of TiVO in timeliness.

Important? Mildly. Not as important as getting married, taking out the garbage, taking a pee, but since I'm at the computer searching for the latest response then at the moment yes it is; as is any $420 a year investment. (Aforementioned 35*12; Which is similar to say... refinancing a car?)

Anyways, continue lol'ing and I shall continue checking back here in hopes of useful information!

Despite what you may or may not read into my posts on this subject. I could really care less about Hulu Plus or the fact that TiVo does not have it. If I really wanted it.... Then Roku, PS3, New TVs, and many other devices already have it.

I just find it funny that everyone gets so bent on the fact that TiVo announces something and won't have the patience for them to get it done in a way that will work with their system. God forbid that it might take a little while for them to get this for everyone. Maybe it would be best for TiVo to just announce a feature when it's done. That way everyone will not start crap threads like this one.

I've tried Hulu on PS3 and Roku. I have to say that I am not at all impressed and I have to wonder why everyone is making such a big fuss. It's going to happen soon enough.

When its done..... I wonder the percentage of folks that will actually use it. In 6 months how many will still be using it? If Hulu does not change their strategy.... It's just a losing proposition.

If you look at TiVo's subscriber trends and TiVo as a percentage of deployed DVRs, I'd say the sky is falling.

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...r-losses/84324

Apps like Hulu Plus or a modernized Netflix are amongst the things that can set TiVo apart from the generic cableco DVR, where Internet-sourced content is feared, and this becomes a missed opportunity. Yeah, Hulu Plus will probably be released this month and its usage numbers could be small... but the ripples are larger. A lot of people stop here, Engadget, etc before making a purchase. Or re-upping.
