    I signed the petition even though I don't use Amazon Prime.
    I think it is asinine that Amazon excludes Prime from TiVo.

    I just hope if they do start offering Amazon streaming that they still allow the TiVo to download titles. Since the streaming is only 720P. I download TV content from Amazon to my TiVos which is typically in 1080P24. Any other device I would watch them on would be streaming and they would be limited to 720P.

    I have 7 HD movies from AIV but of the 7 only 6 downloaded as 1080p. One downloaded as 1080i and I'm thinking that they only had the 1080i file at the time and if I delete and re-download they may have the 1080p file?

    Interesting, I didn't know that. I downloaded one season of Justified directly to the TIVO and streamed another season (both from Amazon). I thought the streamed episodes looked a little better. They both showed up at the TV at 1080P. I did the streaming through my blu-ray player and maybe it up converted them. If so, it's doing a nice job.

    Thanks to all of you who have signed the petition, we still need a ton more to sign. If we stand a chance getting the petition to Amazon. I'm still shocked that they dont allow Prime on TiVo.

    I recently purchased an Oppo Blu-ray player which is compatible with a Roku streaming stick. In fact, you can get the Roku stick for a special price of $50 through Oppo. Since I don't have any other device that allows me to stream Amazon Prime, I almost pulled the trigger, but then I remembered that there was a slight chance that TiVo may have added the ability since I last checked. Looks like that's not the case. At this point I've pretty much given up hope that the Premiere will ever support Amazon Prime streaming or Comcast VOD in my area. Too bad. It would have been cool. :(

    I just signed even though I essentially solved the issue by buying a Sony Blu-Ray player for $100 with built in Wi-Fi that streams from 100+ sources. I make it a point in any conversation or correspondence with Amazon to inform them that Netflix works with TIVO Amazon does not.

    I'm going to sign this petition right away. Then I'm going to sign one calling for the immediate repeal of Obamacare. Lastly, I will start one calling for the immediate colonization of Mars.

    I expect all these petitions to be equally effective.

    Sorry if already asked (and a serious question).

    What is the attraction for video streaming?

    I'm a customer of Amazon Prime and use Amazon Instand Video w/o issues. I would rather it be downloaded to playback whenever. I wish my Kindle would do video download vs. streaming.

    Thanks.

    Streaming is free for Amazon prime members. Downloading costs. Just for example I just streamed 3 seasons of Justified for free. If I downloaded them it would have cost $105. If you think you are downloading for free you may be surprised when your credit card bill comes.

    Amazon Prime Instant Video is pretty much just like Netflix streaming plan. You can't download the Amazon Prime videos just the one's you rent.

    It shows only 33 signatures. I don't see how the petition will make any difference.

    I have not signed it.

    I signed it. It may not go far enought to make a difference, but for the simple mouse clicks, it's worth the effort.

    Perhaps this will somehow take off with Facebook and other social media.

    But only if we actually do it.

    As for the petition for immediate colonization of Mars... No need, I've already got family living there. :p
