New Netflix App Coming

Margret just announced on twitter a while ago that a new Netflix app is coming

https://twitter.com/#!/tivodesign/st...75670943834112

About danged time too. Hopefully it will fit with the new Premiere interface and get rid of the annoying 100 episode limit.

Update: Photos of the new interfaces for Netflix and Youtube

That is great! Thanks for sharing, since I don't "do" Twitter.

Thumbs up

Finally. Woot.

I'll miss the quirks of the current Netflix app.

The old spontaneous reboots when connections were lost.
Dubbing out of sync.
Shows starting out with video in fast forward, with normal dubbing.
No way to tell if you've seen the content before.
Queue reordering constantly (probably Netflix fault, but frustrating nonetheless).
And, on and on.

Glad to see that Tivo woke up and found themselves trailing the pack in 2010. Looking forward to the Netflix update. Now if they update Amazon VOD to allow for Prime Streaming, they truly have the Premiere box on the market.

After years, two major updates in a year. Ipad Streaming. Is this the same company? Not complaining just happy to see it.

It doesn't reboot anymore when a connection is lost. Although the Netflix app drops and takes you back to live tv. At least that how it worked when I was messing around with the app in the v20 software.

Although I never had an issue with videos ff, or out of sync. The netflix app on my TiVos have been pretty much solid and very consistent with playback compared to other devices with Netflix. And when Netflix has been down on other devices, I could always go to my TiVos and it would still be working.

Their booth display seems kind of ironic, though:

Those are my pics from CES last year - I didn't make it to Vegas this year. But I've seen these displays used more than once and figured it'd be representative.

Random episodes not showing up in the list due to the 100 episode limit.

The first time I went to watch Star Trek:TNG on my TiVo season 1 only had 5 episodes listed.

I'm not sure though if this Netflix update will be enough to get me to move back from using my PS3. I just recently picked up the new PS3 Media/Blu-Ray Remote I absolultely love it. That combined with PS3 Media Server I can get almost all my media on my PS3. I even have TiVo Desktop set up to download certain shows to my server and they can stream to the PS3 via transcoding.

I thought this was a problem, but they do seem to give you at least 1 episode from each season. For example, I was doing a 24 marathon and was watching them in reverse order. Season 1 only had like the first 3 episodes. After watching the 1st episode, it removed 20 or so episodes from Season 8 and all the episodes from Season 1 were on the list. Not perfect, but we work with what we're given.

Engadget got a preview of the new Netflix interface on TiVo, which I can't link to.

But go to Engadget, the article name is "Updated TiVo Netflix, YouTube interfaces and iPad streaming hands-on"

In said space, we were able to take in demos of the latest Netflix and YouTube interfaces running on the TiVo Premiere. The refreshed look is greatly appreciated, as in the ability to search and even add movies to your Netflix queue -- there is even support for 5.1 surround sound. Both interfaces should look familiar if you've ever seen the Insignia cTV with TiVo design. The demo was an early version, but we're told the updates should be hitting your Tivo this spring.

I do Twitter.. but the only person I have setup to receive Tweets on my phone is @TivoDesign. The most important one of all.

Pretty much the exact same interface as the PS3. Nice

Hopefully it's faster than what I experienced from the Insignia TiVo TV. YouTube was particularly unpleasant.

I don't see mention of 1080P, only 5.1 audio. So it will stay at 720P?

Gabe from Tech of the Hub said last fall it'd be 1080p.

I think any device that can output 1080p and support Netflix's adaptive bitrate streaming will do 1080p on Netflix. Surely TiVo is switching to the adaptive streaming method. I think any new client created today pretty much has to use the new way of streaming.

The new Xbox Netflix player is an exception. Since nothing does 1080p on the Xbox after the recent update except the player for Microsoft's Zune Video service (neither Netflix or VUDU), this is thought to be part of an evil plan by Microsoft .

Is that some sort of mockup? Because the movie they have selected on the left does not match the description on the right.

Ha I didn't even notice that. All the pics look like they were shots from a live tv. It could be we are seeing some lag between selecting an item and the description updating.. which in traditional Tivo fashion wouldn't be all that surprising.

And as such I expect that it's the same Webkit/HTML5 based interface.
