Amazon ends download support for Series 3/TiVoHD

You won't be able to D/L Amazon Instant Videos to your Series 3/TiVo HD after April 15. But Amazon is offering a $100 credit towards purchase of a Roamio.

Series 3 is still listed in Amazon's supported devices list

Important Information About Amazon Instant Video on Your TiVo Device
Amazon.com Customer Service

Hello,

As someone who has used the Amazon application on your TiVo Series 3, we want to let you know the application will no longer be available on your TiVo after April 15, 2015. This means you won’t be able to download videos to your TiVo after this date. You can however continue to watch the movies and TV episodes you purchased and downloaded on your TiVo prior to this date by following the instructions below.

**Important - To keep your downloaded videos:

1. Download all purchased videos you want to save to your TiVo by April 15, 2015. After this date, you won't be able to download videos from Amazon on your device.

2. To make sure your downloaded videos remain saved to your device, check the "Keep Until" settings for each one. Use your remote to open TiVo Central, then go to your "Now Playing" list. Select a video, open the "Keep Until" option, and choose "Keep Until I Delete" or specify a date.

If you don’t download your purchased videos onto your TiVo Series 3 and check the "Keep Until" date for each, you won’t be able to watch them on your device after April 15, 2015.

You can also stream your purchased movies and TV episodes on hundreds of compatible devices including TiVo Roamio, Smart TVs, game consoles, iOS, Android, and Fire devices. For more information about ways to watch, go to: https://www.amazon.com/watchnow

As a TiVo Series 3 customer, you're eligible for $100 off a TiVo Roamio sold by Amazon.com so you can stream Amazon Instant Video.

You can redeem this offer on the Amazon website:
1. Go to: https://www.amazon.com/TiVo5
2. Add a qualifying TiVo Roamio device to your Cart and proceed to checkout.
3. On the "Select a Payment Method" page, enter *** under "Gift Cards & Promotional Codes."
4. Place your order.

You'll see the promotional credit reflected in your order details. This offer is available until April 30, 2015. See the following link for the full terms and conditions:

https://www.amazon.com/TiVo5OfferTerms

Sincerely,

Customer Service

Minor bummer.

Three threads on this so far -- one for each user actually still using this capability (?)

The three threads were born within 10mins. There was no posts on it when I searched.

And I have three Amazon vids on my THD, and over fifty on my Roamio, so yeah I use it a lot. IMHO, it's the only way to see Amazon's 9 Mb/s 1080p encodes consistently. According to Zatz, this functionality will eventually go away for all platforms.

And I'm D/Ling Interstellar to my Roamio right now.

FWIW, you still have time to download them to your PC.
