That's true. Other then the "announcement" last November that they were working on it they haven't even mentioned Android support.

There were valid reasons for them not to have it ready at launch, those reasons are a LOT less valid 10 months later. I'm with you at this point! Android support should be available by now.

Of course they are different, but you are exaggerating how different they are. I'd say it's like iOS 6.01 and 6.1.2. Different but not much so.

The only people that quote adoption rates are Apple fanboys because the old Apple bragging rights of "most apps" and total handset popularity has vanished.

That being said, maybe iOS7 will finally push the platform enough for me to consider owning an iPhone. As it is now, Android has been leading the pack with features and innovation for the past few years. The fact that iOS still doesn't have automatic app updates is mind boggling. It's like how long it took for Apple to provide cut and paste and MMS support.

I own apple and android devices and am far from an apple fanboy. While I reiterate that it is harder than most think, there are many here that oversimplify both the technical and business challenges.

I would love android support as much as everyone else.

Why do I feel that if this isn't fixed, a class action lawsuit should be filed for discrimination against Android users with a no faith concern? As in we have no faith in TiVo.

What makes me concerned is; there is no mention of android on the Streams product page on TiVo.com. I could have swore that it used to say something about android support coming soon, or something to that effect.

There are millions of apps that only work on one OS or another. I doubt not supporting your OS of choice is grounds for a class action suit.

Good luck finding a lawyer to take that. You'd have no standing unless they publicly stated that they would support android and gave a timing.

Never buy a product based on future promises, buy it as-is.

True - but in 2013 no serious business offers support on only one mobile platform. Only fledgling startups that will sink or swim within 12 months release with support for a single mobile operating system.

Probably right but at least it would give me something to do.

Better probability of it being tied to a rev of the sw than to a hw platform.

Android 4.3 will be released at the same time as the Nexus 7 tablet release.

While I would certainly like Android support, I am a little more sympathetic than most to Tivo. Today it was announced that traffic from tablets in the US and Canada exceeded 84% for iPad.

Easy to see where the resources get spent....

I am suspect of that number.

To determine the distribution of Web usage among tablet devices for the month of June 2013, Chitika Insights sampled tens of millions of U.S. and Canadian tablet online ad impressions running through the Chitika Ad Network.
Because they are measuring off of their own ad network I am not sure how repesentational the data is to a wider market. We are relying on their ability to accurately sniff all of the devices. Without knowing the methodology on the back end it is almost impossible to tell how accurate they are.

I have no doubt that Apple leads in this market, but 84% seems too high. My gut tells me that it is probably in the 60-70% range. That still supports your premise, but not as strongly.

I see Android phones everywhere, but in my daily commutes I have only seen one or two Android tablets, iPads are everywhere! (Disregarding people reading books on Kindles...)

But, Todays announcement of Android 4.3 includes new DRM (Digital Rights Management) API's.. That may well be the key to bring Tivo streaming to Android.

If it does it will give me a good excuse to try a Nexus 7.

That link sums up the reality of Apple and Android products better than any of the comments previously in this thread. The iPad tablet usage share is increasing despite the rising share of Android tablet sales. In other words people might be buying more Android tablets year on year but they obviously offer such a diminished user experience that they just don't get used.

Give it another year or two, and you will see Android tablets everywhere. Like the iPhone dominating the smartphone market for a few years, the iPad has dominated for a few years. However, times a 'changing.

I don't think it will be a year or 2. 70 million android tablets so far - with 30 million of them from this year.

I made this account just to reply to this comment.

I won't ever buy Apple products either, and now I won't ever buy Tivo products either, especially after reading your comment.

This is what you call good PR?

I'm glad i did a little research before I purchased any Tivo devices.

I'll be sure to steer all friends and family away from Tivo as well.

Good job!

I'd wonder when we'll see support for Windows 8 phones and tablets. Probably before we'll see support for Android devices.

You do understand that this site is not owned or operated by TiVo right? And that the person you quoted does not represent TiVo.

While the "Stream" does not currently support streaming to Android devices we have good reason to believe that TiVo will support streaming to Android devices at sometime in the future. Of course if buying now don't buy based on anything other than what is available now.

Actually, there will always be people who take positions that start include the word "never."

In most cases they were not likely to be customers anyway, so not much is lost. People need to keep an open mind and buy what meets their needs.
