Next software update features revealed already?

It sounds like the VirginMedia Tivos just got a new Netflix update. I don't know if it's a different version than we currently have. However, the article that mentions the update also states that these features are rolling out along with it:

1. profiles, which support up to five individual users - Finally!!!
2. recommendations from your Facebook friends - Yawn
3. the ability to play a previously-watched film or TV episode from the beginning (instead of just resuming) - don't we have this already?
4. an option to view all episodes from all seasons of your favorite programmers in a single list. - Someone was just complaining about Tivo not having this on Zatz's site.

I hope we get a little more than this in the next update but we will probably just get some bugs fixes along with it.

Are you sure they're not talking about the Netflix app? Those all sound like features that could be part of the netflix app, and not TiVo.

Yes all Netflix updates

http://www.engadget.com/2014/12/12/n...ia-tivo-boxes/

As far as I can tell this is the netflix version retail has had for quite a while - so this media release foretells nothing for us.

I've had choosing different profiles for quite some time. You do have to setup the profile on the web page first. I don't really see anything on this list that isn't already available to retail units in the states.

It looks like the version of the article that I saw made it sound like these were new Tivo features not Netflix.

Sorry for the confusion.
