    The Fire HD8 tablet is going to be $30 off on Black Friday (should be around $60 if I'm reading my sources correctly). Can anyone confirm that the TiVo app works on a Fire HD8? It would be a deal-breaker if the answer is no! :D

    Confirmed. I didn't see the Tivo app in the Amazon App Store. You'll have to install the Google Play Store. That's what I've done on my Fire HD 8.

    I just got the Fire HD 8 for $25. Does the TiVo app in the Amazon store allow in home and out of home streaming similar to the Android or iOS app? I'm more concerned about in home streaming. I bought the tablet because it was cheap enough but now I'm figuring out how my kids can get use from it.

    I saw that the Fire Tablet was on sale, very very tempting, especially with 256 micro sd capability. But flac is Not a supported file format and I probably would not want to use a non-native app, other than Mediamonkey, which looks like is limited to the Fire Tablets supported file formats.
