    I thought Tivo shared the same HTML5 platform as Samsung's smart televisions which Samsung has since abandoned.

    This is true. They're built on the Samsung HTML5 spec from 2016 using the Opera browser as the base. So the apps aren’t TiVo specific, but there is a whole convoluted process to get the app onto the TiVo and to release updates.

    No. The app developers develop for platforms they want to be on. Some are pretty portable so they can stick them anywhere. TiVo did NOT develop the apps.

    You still miss the whole point. There is no return on investment for streaming companies to sink money in tivo app development. None. For the tivo apps to get started, tivo PAID the streaming suppliers (amazon, netflix and hulu) to develop apps. Once that funding stopped, there was no further drive for development so it stopped. Tivo is a dead platform for streaming unless Tivo moves its application to a mainstream platform like android. The best tivo can hope for to stay relevant going forward to to publish apps for the major streaming platforms to allow tivo content on them. Tivo will never again bet the center of the home media world as apps are being removed not added. Its use as a stand alone streaming platform is dying and there is no bringing it back.

    Roku supported d+ with their universal search right away and playon already has support for d+. Just to point out that with some planning and apparently a little effort since playon isn't hundreds of people and worth tens of millions of dollars, it can be done.

    Condolences to a fellow Cox customer. Not a great endorsement, though technically accurate.

    If you include Contour whatever, that was on Android first. Does that count?

    REMEMBER THAT TIVO IS LIQUIDATING ITS HARDWARE BUSINESS. 2-3 YEARS AGO THEY FIRED MANY OF THEIR PROGRAMMERS. TIVO IS NOT PUTTING MONIES INTO THEIR HARDWARE PRODUCT. I'VE BEEN A CUSTOMER FOR 20 YEARS, BUT THIS IS THE LAST OF THE HARDWARE I'D BUY FROM THEM. LOOK ELSEWHERE.

    They just released a new Android TV streaming device 2 days ago. They may be getting out of the DVR business, but they're still currently in the hardware business.

    Tivo is on a death watch... Few will want to buy any new hardware from Tivo. And with so many other great seasoned streaming devices out there now, why buy one from TiVo. Next month TiVo may add ads to your device.

    TiVo got into the game way too late.

    Have you tried TiVo stream, it’s by far light years ahead of the competition. I swear I don’t know where we find these people.:rolleyes:

    You are confusing them contracting out the hardware with getting out of the hardware business. They've never wanted to make the hardware from the beginning (and didn't originally as Sony and Philips "made" the original TiVo hardware). They only started making TiVo-branded hardware when Sony and Philips stopped.

    TIVO IS NOT LIQUIDATING ITS HARDWARE BUSINESS, unless, maybe, you got a notice that I never received, lol. (But who knows what may happen next.)
    Lol--the death watch purveyors probably have been around for 20 years now. Yes, things are more precarious and unknown than before, especially with sales of TiVo/acquisitions/mergers, changing technologies, and changing markets. And people should consider those factors. But who knows what will happen next.

    Agreed that TiVo has a handicap in entering the streamer market as late as it has, and that there is competition out there with nice devices--I have one of them. But if TiVo can build and maintain a better product, who knows what might happen. (And it may wish to consider allowing its streamer to work with its DVRs in that regard, enlarging its audience that way (although, admittedly, there are other considerations as well).)

    And ads on the device? As far as I can tell, my Roku device already has 'em, at least static ads on its homepage--just sayin'.

    As I have stated, do all of you think the streamer market is officially closed? We will see no improvements, no new devices . Either you want tivo to fail so bad you are hoping an industry will die. It you are just stupid. If a new Roku came out would that be " late to the party"? If Samsung put out a streaming device is it too doomed to fail? What is wrong with some people.

    I think Tivo will sell quite a few of these streamers (relatively) but if they are no better than the rest they will get thrown in a drawer somewhere in the home for lost gadgets.

    Someone, who purchased this device, should call customer support and ask if this device can be reverted to TE3.

    You must be drinking the TiVo Kool-Aid..... The TiVo streaming apps on my BOLT SUX at best. You think that TiVo's first attempt at a stand along streaming device is better than others that have been doing it for years?

    Educate me... What options does a TiVo steaming device have that others do not? What makes it better than others?

    Just like folks who love Apple (and stand in line for any new product,) TiVo fans may buy this device. That stimulus money need to go someplace....
