    I am so confused about this subject. I want to add the LifeTime TV app to access it on my tivo bolt. according to Tivo support, there is no capability to add one, but some threads indicate soe kind of way to do this.

    any help would be appreciated.

    There are only a limited amount of apps available on TiVos and neither Lifetime nor Showtime are. Go to Apps—>Add and Manage Apps to see the full list.

    At one time we were able to add Apps that were not listed. We can't do that anymore?

    At one time, you could add external apps but they had to be ones written for TiVo (HME?) and hosted on a server. There were never many out there other than a few created by some of the users here. You could never add an app like Showtime (and HME has been retired).

    I think the Channels DVR software is a better DVR option than Tivo for those who desire more apps because you can get the full throated versions of the apps and have the ability to record the shows from some of the apps.
