    So, I’ve stumbled upon something I don’t get, but maybe someone here can help me.

    I try to watch the NFL game on Amazon prime using the app through my TiVo bolt, but can’t find it anywhere.

    I open the app on my phone and it works just fine.

    then I decided to try running it through my Apple TV and it shows up there just like my phone.

    Why can’t I run it through the Amazon prime app on my tivo? What am I missing?

    thanks in advance for the help!

    I’d guess because the NFL game is a live event and the tivo integration with prime is for video on demand.

    Yeah, I'd guess TiVo is running an outdated Prime app that hasn't been updated in years.

    Thanks for the thoughts. Too bad this company continues to move backwards in "desirability."

    I guess hat's why they are pushing the Tivo Stream and not updating the DVRs. Would be nice if the DVR could integrate the current stream software.

    So when you could see it, what did you think about the quality? I caught a little of it on Saturday via my Sony TV's Prime app, but thought the quality was just average and a bit pixelated. Certainly no where near watching a game OTA.

    I watched it on my Roku and thought it was as good as OTA, but not any better.
