    Any word yet on this? I have an Amazon Prime membership, and I would hate to have to buy a Roku or similar to watch Amazon streaming if I could get it on my Tivo Premiere.

    I feel your pain. I bought an refurbished Roku 2 XS for around 50 dollars for Prime streaming, if Prime comes to Tivo the Roku can be moved to another TV.

    I saw refurbished Roku3 devices on NewEgg last week for $60. Until this and other streaming features I expect to have are on the newer Roamios let alone this generation I'm not giving anymore money to TiVo.

    With the introduction of more and more built-in "Smart" hubs in HDTVs, this is becoming a moot point. Samsung, for example, is now including Amazon Prime as one of its standard apps. And if you have a Kindle Fire HD, you can play Prime content on any HDTV with an HDMI intput.

    what about those who have no need for a new HD Amazon should allow prime instant vide and now music on Tivo.

    It's a mystery to me why we don't have this yet. I thought when they switched to HTML5 for apps we'd see all sorts of new apps pop up on TiVo. But with the exception of a few remakes of apps we already had, and the nearly useless Opera store, we haven't gotten anything. I want Prime, HBOGo, VUDU, Crackle, etc... The apps that pretty much every other platform and smart TV on the market has.

    So maybe the problem is on Tivo's end, despite what some Tivo supporters say?

    Is amazon prime available on non-kindle devices? Nope, gotta use a browser. Is that Tivo's fault too?

    What are you talking about? We're talking about Amazon Prime video, and not a store front. :confused:

    I agree that this is not Tivo's fault - other than they need to lobby harder to have Amazon update their app. Amazon Prime Video is ABSOLUTELY available on non kindle devices. In my home: Roku, iOS (iphone and ipad), Samsung Blu-ray players. There may be something non-trivial about the app upgrade, but I think Amazon simply doesn't have the resources to take it on without it coming at the expense of higher value/volume platform upgrades. It clearly keeps falling below the fold on their current project list...

    Uh, yes it is. Roku, Smart TV, Windows Media Center (granted, via browser for the last one).

    Probably Western Digital and other devices as well.

    Yes
    iOS, xBox (both), PS3/4, pretty sure even the Nintendo line has it (though I haven't checked in ages, I could be wrong there) all maintain separate apps for Amazon Instant Video

    Yeah, it's just been a while since I fired up the Wii. I figured it was there though ;)

    Looking at that, only one manufacturer is behind, and it's pretty sad that Tivo just isn't listening

    guess there isn't enough tivo users that want it. That stinks.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise. Premier owners aren't getting the newly released Amazon Prime app. Does TiVo really think this will force us to upgrade to a Roamio? Hardly.

    I don't see why they would think that. There are many dozens of devices with access to Amazon streaming. Heck I have well over a dozen of them at home.
