    It's in the Amazon AppStore now. Same interface as Android TV, but each version has some (mostly minor) bugs for the current functionality.

    Nope, simply searched for it under apps and it found it. No special tricks.

    Reelgood responded by email to my Feedback post and are working on reproducing the issue via Android TV device. Will see what happens.

    JustWatch app launches prime properly on TV Stream. Been checking out Reelgood and JustWatch today. Reelgood interface feels better than Justwatch though. This will be a good alternative on the shield since it doesn't have TiVo stream.

    Does either the Justwatch app or Reelgood app include your purchased content from any or all of the MA retailers (Vudu, FandangoNow, Apple, etc.) in their lists, or is it exclusively streaming content?

    I can only test Prime, since I have a few purchases there, and nope, it does not pull my purchases. Doesn't work in Tivo Stream either.

    Hey, have you been hounding Tivo Stream people? :) All of a sudden, it's working properly on the Tivo Stream. All prime links are now launching the movies.

    People betting on Reelgood lost. Tivo Stream fixed it.

    Just tried and no change in behavior on my TS4K. Not sure where TiVo app version can be seen but was yours updated to make it work? I didn't try movies, but series if that makes any difference. Of course the holes in TiVo streaming data are all still there as well.

    The app is version 1.0.13-0. Maybe restart your Tivo dongle or get it to search for latest updates in the settings. I didn't purposely update it or anything, but I had done a lot of plugging and unplugging today. TV Shows, it takes you to the show, but you'll have to select what episode you watch. With Netflix, it'll auto launch first episode.

    I've been playing with reelgood on fire tv today too because you had me curious. The one advantage of the tivo remote is the tivo stream home button. If you change your mind about a movie, just hit that button and you go back to the movies page on the tivo stream app. With the fire tv, you have to keep hitting back. With Prime, you can hit back and it'll take you back to the Reelgood app, but with Netflix, you have to hit back, then go to the side menu and "exit" out of Netflix. So if using Netflix on fire tv, better to just go to home screen, then re-enter reelgood.

    I tried loading Prime & Netflix shows and movies from the TS4K and it now goes directly to the show. I have version 1.0.13-0. I assume that is an update. Still the Tivo app can't find some Titles with search so it is hard to get them into your "My Shows" or even Recently Watched.
    I don't know if the update solved any other problems.

    After a reboot of TS4K the TiVo app completely went away for me, probably because I did the adbLink changes to de-TiVo the TS4K but perhaps before they weren't fully in effect. So unless I undo those changes I can't even get the TiVo app anymore to try it. But note that Prime launching on Fire stick takes you directly to the episode itself and starts playing it, so big improvement over what TiVo is doing even with the "fixed" version.

    Another response from them already. They could not reproduce on their non TiVo Android TV device, so are in process of buying a TS4K to try and reproduce the error there. So it's probably going to take them some time to get it working with TS4K but I'm impressed at the support so far.

    Too bad TiVo isn't helpful like that.

    To reactivate TiVo Stream app that is just hidden, go into adb shell and type


    cmd package install-existing com.tivo.atom

    Actually, it will launch the chosen episode. I was simply hastily testing and didn't think to choose an episode. I was simply picking any tv show that was offered by prime and then clicking it. But again, you got me curious, so I had to go back and really test it. LOL! So I realize that if you click EPISODES, you can then choose the exact episode you want, and the Tivo Stream app will launch right into it.

    Fire TV has been around for several generations, and Reelgood has been out longer than TV Stream app. So it's not surprising Reelgood is working well with Fire TV. In their first month, I think Tivo is doing okay and already fixed some things. Lets see how serious they are about this down the line.

    The launching piece I'm will to cut TiVo some slack on, but the giant holes in their streaming database have been around for years on the DVR platform and they've never done anything to fix that. Now they have a product specifically targeted at streaming platform aggregation yet they have done nothing to address the streaming data holes. That is unforgivable and given the many years they've known about it yet not addressed it I sincerely doubt they ever will at this point.

    A bit off-topic but does anyone know how to get Reelgood to launch the HDR (as opposed to SDR) version of a series?

    I did that (plus reboot) and TiVo app did not come back. So I also did the following for the other related tivo packages:
    cmd package install-existing com.tivo.tivoplusplayer
    cmd package install-existing com.tivo.tvlaunchercustomization
    reboot

    But still nothing. So likely at this point a reset would be needed to get the TiVo stuff back, but it's not worth it to me since I know the TiVo overlay will be worthless to me regardless.
