    Well since the HBO Go app is being discontinued and TiVo just sent an email stating to use HBO use a computer or streaming stick I doubt we will see any new apps for this on the existing TiVos. Sad...

    Tivo doesn't develop the apps you need to ask HBOMax, Disney+, and AppleTV+ to port the apps to tivo

    That would seem like Tivo's job not paying customers. I would hope they pursue this asap as they are immediately antiquating themselves not having these apps available. Roku has already updated their remotes to include actual hard buttons for these services. They (and AppleTV) also had these apps available immediately upon their release. Peacock is a new streaming app that will go mega and I assume Tivo does not have that in their sights. Just seems like Tivo is always behind the 8-ball.

    i can only guess that tivo would like to offer these services to customers through their devices, but sometimes tivo asking the services is not enough - there needs to be customer demand. since mso's are unlikely to see any advantage to having their streaming competition added to tivo services, it will be up to retail subscribers, and the customer base just isn't large enough to justify the development cost (i'm still guessing here).

    i imagine roku and appletv have many more subscribers than tivo, moving them to the front of the line - so, if customers ask the services directly to support tivo, they may change their minds on developing the apps for tivo (or, maybe not).

    Well that still ain't right! It would seem that their Stream 4K DOES have Disney +...perhaps that will be more easily upgradeable with new services than their DVR + Mini platforms.

    While Tivo may want it to be pushed onto their existing customers to demand these new services "apps", in the end, that makes no business sense. They sacrifice future customers, and risk losing their existing base if they don't keep their streaming services up to date. I already see competitors like Fire Recast that support OTA and more apps. I don't intend to purchase new Tivo equipment unless they can keep up. if thats 1-3 years off, they'll need to rethink their roadmap to stay competitive. all these apps are always looking to increase their viewership, and deals are brokered for every streaming device.
