I have cox ondemand it's only cox hardware or tivo with cable cards not on roku or firetv
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?
I would say contour doesn't count
