    From CBS ‘s earnings call. There will be a CBS all access international edition. So no Netflix for CBS shows in the future.
    CBS is bringing back 'The Twilight Zone' on All Access

    CBS is having some problems. NFL isn't helping. Check their stock price.

    Too bad--I was kinda hoping it would fail, so that CBS would actually put programming on its broadcast network. ;)

    So what's the point of CBS if all of their new shows are going to be on an app I can't watch on my TV?

    All I know is allot of people should be very upset about what CBS is doing:
    1. Cable/satellite subscribers: You cable/satellite company is paying the local CBS station and you are paying them, but you don't get access to these new shows.
    2. Cable/Satellite companies: You are paying the local CBS station but your customers don't get access to these shows and are now being encourage to use services you get nothing for and could lead to your customers leaving you.
    3. Local CBS Station owners: You are being cut out of the loop, with CBS trying to steal your customers away, this could lead to a failure of your business.
    4. OTA users: while we are not loosing anything directly, actions like this could help destroy OTA, which is a pretty big negative.
    5. People who do not have access to affordable high data, high speed internet: This is the beginning of you just being Fu**ed.
    6. People who enjoy using services like Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu, this is the beginning of the end of multi studio/network services.
    I will say it again JUST SAY NO do not reword CBS for trying to destroy the current system. Do not pay them a dime, if you have to watch these shows down load them via bit torrent. If they succeed we will all pay more for a pain in the a** miss mash AL cart system.

    Worthy shows that aren't going to do Survivor level ratings, that you can put in a pay service. Or you can get mainstream shows that get ratings that take no chances. Netflix and Amazon have cast the dice, now all will follow. Welcome to TV 2017, there is no going back. The current system is already destroyed.

    A streaming box can do so much more for you just one app, they don't have to be expensive. Your Tivos will still have plenty to do.

    Yes streaming boxes are typically inexpensive. Unless it has Apple in the name.

    What would be great is if there was a standard API and model for networks where you could purchase à la carte the OTT programs/networks/bundles you want. And TiVo Search and OnePass/Bookmarks was able to find your content OTT or OTA transparently from more than just the few integrated OnePass Apps currently avaiable.

    Would be really cool if local content had an available API to be included in the mix as well. For example, an opportunity for the Plex app to be included in TiVo Search!

    It is close to seamless with the current streaming integration but the proprietary apps cause what I consider unnecessary delay and remove you from the TiVo experience as you either have to Navigate in the app to find the next program or exit the app to return to MyShows then after selecting the next program start the appropriate app back up.

    The current integration is pretty awful because new streaming series that become available on even the popular OTT services like Netflix take sometimes MONTHS to show up in Rovi database. I can understand a day or two, but anything longer than that makes it pretty worthless IMO. Thus to me the streaming integration by TiVo has failed to live up to expectations and hype of the feature.

    And it expands...

    Disney is now working on a live action Star Wars TV series, but will run it on the online platform only.

    It is expensive when you only need it for one service. The TiVo already does everything else, so it is just for one app. And having to switch inputs, remotes, all for one stupid app, nope.

    I have been a Star Trek fan since the show was born. I'll still be a Star Trek fan when I die. If it takes a decade to have access, I will still be a fan. Doesn't matter how long. I might even buy a BluRay player and the discs.

    Like other streaming services, original content is key to getting more subscribers. And this would certainly get me to subscribe to the Disney Service. Just like Star Trek Discovery got me to subscribe to CBS All Access.

    With HDMI-CEC, I hit one button on the device remote, and my TV and receiver will change to the correct inputs. Which is what happens when I switch to my ROku to watch content from half a dozen streaming services I use.

    Good for you. I have no need to do all of that, only to pay $6 a month for one show with commercials.

    I found when I was in EU on vacation Netflix only let me access EU content, this let me download all the current episodes of discovery to my iPad. Yay, no need to subscribe. (Don’t assume a commercial VPN will let you do the same, Netflix is too good at finding all the endpoints...)
