    Actually they are on the Tivo Stream 4K. If you click on a show, there is a rate option underneath the description. If you click on that it shows thumbs up or down which you can select. IMO they require too many clicks, but it's possible to do. I'm assuming they impact the suggestions, but that's a black box.

    not good enough - bring back the buttons so we can easily rate any show or movie we want without endless clicks

    and shows how backwards management is - getting rid of the buttons that set tivo apart and ignoring these forums for suggestions - cause of the managements sheer arrogance - most management in all companies are out to lunch

    99% of people in management with a degree don't have a clue how to run a business - give me people with business sense who said screw college - like COL SANDERS - DAVE THOMAS AND MANY OTHERS

    Or they could have data showing the majority of the user base doesn’t use it so they got rid of it These forums are the niche part of there user base. MSO users outnumber there retail base 10-1. They do what the cable company’s want them to do. If your expecting otherwise you are sorely disappointed. I would return your stream and go back to roku

    they don't listen to their user base - that's been established - they only follow a book and make poor decisions

    my goodness it took them how many years to get into streaming ?

    if they keep these bonehead decisions up they will become the SEARS of digital
    entertainment - was 1st to the dance but forgot how to adapt cause had poor management and failed to adapt in a timely fashion


    they got rid of the buttons because some goof thought it was holding back tivo - it made them different than other dvr's and companies did not want that - so tivo complied

    all the while ignoring customers and ignoring common sense of who would want be able rate and only watch shows they like or are similar to what they like in the easiest fashion

    after all advertising is going to target advertising so who of course would want a way to be able make the target more obvious - smart people would - so that why tivo got rid of it - they are not making smart decisions

    Nope, Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down, and Suggestions, are still there and working well on the TiVo DVRs, under the TE3 UI. :)
