    I haven't used the Firestick app for more than a year but when I did it would allow me to stream outside the home. I only had 1Mbps upload at home so the pic quality and performance weren't very good. With faster internet speeds it would have likely worked better.

    AFTVnews reports TIVO is working on a new cross-platform app and it could be released as early as next week at the CES convention in Vegas.
    Tivo retires Amazon Fire TV app with new one in the works

    The Beta app for Fire TV that I used, did not allow live channels to stream, only previously recorded programs. Unlike my TiVo app for IOS, it did not allow me watch live by beginning a recording. I only had the last version of the beta before the login debacle began in November, so if this feature was active previously I apologize.

    I purchased a Mi Box from Walmart and was able to sideload the Tivo app for Android. I'm able to sign in and connect to my Roamio OTA and watch recorded content. The one thing I haven't figured out is how to skip forward 30 seconds with the Mi remote as I could with the FireStick. More soon in the hope that it will help others.

    Android app sideloaded on a Fire HD tablet still seems to work...

    Tivo recently made some changes that fixed the Stream functionality which was broken. I'm wondering if this had an impact on the Fire app. Has anybody tried it again in the past few days?

    Good news... The Silk Browser was completely stable watching TiVo Online today.

    This is on a bedroom TV that is only capable of 720P/1080i.

    Just tried to use the Tivo app on my firestick. Haven't used it in a very long time because it didn't work well. Was prompted to download a new version which I did. Get the 'network error' message after logging in with correct id and password. Any suggestions? I'm using Firestick outside of home.

    We're all waiting for a new app. The old one was considered a beta I think and was set to expire a long time ago.

    Thanks for the explanation. The out of home streaming worked great years ago, but hasn't worked well for a couple of years. Nice of Tivo to let us know they were removing the ability to stream from a Firestick. And why do they leave the app as available then??!! They could at least give a message back when you try to log in. Is there any word on WHEN we may get the new app, and are we definitely going to get a new app? I travel almost every week, and want to get back to watching my Tivo'd shows from my firestick in the hotel.

    I'm pretty sure they said 2019 and I've been waiting all year. I've also been sideloading the Android versions to see if any of them enabled FireTV capability but nothing yet. If you follow this thread, I'm sure it'll be announced here. When I see any news, I'll add it here if someone doesn't beat me to it.

    I have watched programs on my fire stick using miracast from my samsung galaxy s9+ (I have other devices that claim to support miracast, but they don't work so well).
