So it's a sweepstakes to win a chance to pre-order?

I am thinking it is a list for the opportunity (read: send you an email) to pre-order but they will pick one entry and give one away. Not a bad marketing plan.

I don't see anything in the T&C that says they are giving one away, just 600 "winners" get to pre-order. The Facebook "requirement" makes me ineligible anyway.

Well that sucks.... It let me enter without asking about the like on Facebook. I don't have a Facebook account so I don't know what will happen if I am "chosen".

And BTW.. They are having a contest that I have to "win" to buy one of their products. Who do they think they are Apple??

The contest is only a week long. Maybe next week they will make an announcement about the price?

I'm sure the Android phone and tablet apps will be updated to support the Stream but not on launch.

Ha ha! I wish they would have released more details on the device before announcing the pre-order "sweepstakes". Biggest unanswered question is how much will this device cost? Since I have Time Warner that CCx02s everything, it limits greatly what I can take outside my home network.

It does say to contact TiVo Customer Support if you have any questions. It's highly unlikely they'll have any idea what the price is going to be, but you could try anyway.

As far as I can tell, the contest entry is not a contract to buy though, so you can always back out if you "win" and the price is too high.

Win a chance to pre-order? Wow, the level of lameness here is... astounding.

This is truly silly. A chance to "win" a chance to preorder something to buy.

At least the one good thing about this is that it looks like we are getting very close to the stream being available for purchase. Maybe 30 days or less?

Oppo essentially did the same thing with their early acceptance program for the BDP-83 blu-ray player and Ceton is doing now for their new echo, but I agree calling it a sweepstakes is kind of silly when it's really just a paid beta.

Yeah, what, a year later?

I love how the main headline announcement is worded: "Stream shows from your TiVo® Premiere DVR to your mobile devices at home or wirelessly transfer shows for on-the-go entertainment"

This is misleading. My Linux netbook is mobile- no support. My Xoom Android tablet is mobile- no support. My Android phone- no support. People with MacOS or MS-Windows laptops- also no support. All of those are "mobile devices".

So it should be worded ".... to a few mobile devices, but only if they are Apple and laptops/notebooks excluded...".

I wonder if it will work with the TiVo Desktop, doubt it though. If so that might solve the solution of being able to use it with your laptops. Then again if someone like wmcbrine or moyekj can get a workaround it sounds like it would be a nice solution for offloading already compressed content.

I think you'll see Android support before any updates to desktop. I could envision a new metro app for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 which would be the replacement to TiVo Desktop. I will go out on the limb and say we'll see the Android update to support the Stream by the end of the year.

Well as long as someone can do like they did with the iPad Discovery, then we wouldn't need a new TiVo Desktop.

I would say that is probably right though I could see it next year also. I don't remember how long it took for the Android app to come out compared to the IOS apps or how often the updates come after the IOS updates.

I do think it would be smart to work on a Metro app with the rumors of the cheap Microsoft tablet.

The android app, still doesn't have all the features that the iOS app does. A friend of mine has a Premiere and I was showing him the iOS app in away mode, where I can look at My Shows and even delete one (not sure I'd ever want to, but I can). He has an Android phone so I said he could do the same thing. I was misinformed apparently since he couldn't see his My Shows in away mode (it looked like what a Series 3 looks like in the iOS app). It told him to connect to his local network. I thought maybe he had an old version, but he checked and he had the latest version.

So either his Premiere isn't working correctly or the Android app doesn't have those features in away mode.

Ahhhhh I got fooled. You should update the OP with the fact that it's a sweepstakes for the chance to win a chance to pre-order
