You are paying for use of the app. If you stop paying the app is no longer functional. Tivo has never sold me "guide service and code updates". Tivo sells the TIVO SERVICE. Tivo has decided to make the Netflix app a part of the Tivo service. The fact that there are multiple threads regarding bugs in a 5 year old app says a lot about the Tivo product. If they were selling me "code updates" as you mentioned, the argument would be the same. It's been FIVE YEARS. Where is the update?
