    For us, yes. For TiVo, it will be the beginning of the end as TiVo will need to compete with all those inexpensive Android devices.

    Looks to be a drawn out fight over ads.
    WSJ News Exclusive | Amazon Clashes With Disney Over Terms for Offering Apps in Fire TV

    I still have Roku and Nvidia Shield, but FireTV is my primary device of choice. Refusing 30% of the market? Doesn't seem like Disney at all.

    I think I'm going to buy an Apple TV. I got a free year of Apple TV+ with my new watch anyway, and that's the only device they're going to support out of the gate, so it's two birds one stone. Going to wait until after the October event though just in case they release a new one and I can pickup an old one cheap.

    Not sure if you’re an “Apple” guy or not but even so I think you’ll like it. The remote is really great just get a rubber case for it so it doesn’t slip around like a sliver of soap.

    I have an iPad and iPhone, but a Windows PC and I prefer Alexa over Siri so I'm kinda all over the place. But I'm sure I'll like the Apple TV. I've avoided them thus far simply because they're so expensive and I have other, cheaper, streaming devices.

    As a footnote to this, I have an iMac running Windows and it’s probably the best PC I’ve ever owned.

    My boss gave me an old MacBook Air. I don’t use it that often but I don't mind OSX. It's kind of nice to be able to respond to texts on the computer and get my reminders and calendar alerts on there too. I can see why people get sucked in to the whole Apple ecosystem.

    Windows 10 has done this for quite a while now. At least for Android phones. Worked fine for my Galaxy S8+ and started with my Galaxy Fold without even a change in settings. IE Android and Windows cooperated enough to transfer the setup to the new phone once linked to the same accounts.

    Crazy right. My iMac with Win 10 is faster than my other Win 10 pc's. :(

    Craziness can’t really be judged absent hardware specs for the associated boxes.

    Crazy doesn't have specs. But, like porn, you'll know it when you see it. :D

    BTW, all the money people on CNBC think Disney+ is a killer.

    There is a lot in this thread and most of it seems tangential to what I'd expect but...

    I've been figuring disney+ will be available on tivo through the hulu app. Kind of like showtime. Is that off?

    That would require The Hulu Live TV app, it's a little different than just the regular Hulu VOD app that runs on Tivo.

    Are you sure? They announced a bundle of ESPN+, Hulu (with ads version), and Disney+ a few months back. It's definitely not the hulu live TV, especially for that price.

    The response was in reference to Disney+ being available within the Hulu app, similar to other “Premium Add-Ons” like HBO or Showtime, which would require the “latest Hulu app,” rather than the “Classic” version with which TiVos are blessed. (see: Hulu Help: Hulu supported devices)



    As for the mentioned bundle, TiVo owners would only have access to one of the three services.

    I get a free year of Apple TV+ as well (thanks to a new iPad) and picked up a used Apple TV 3rd Gen on eBay for $39.00 (you'll want the current 4th gen unit if you have a 4K TV). There is supposed to be a new version 'coming soon.'

    I don’t have any 4K TVs, so that's not super important. But I'd rather buy the newer one just because it's got a faster chip and it's been my experience that slow apps suck.

    It also has a lot more memory. We're a Roku household, but I got it just for Apple TV+ and for Slingplayer support (Sling just killed support for Slingplayer on Roku) when I travel.
