Advertisements I am a longtime Tivo user, I have a Premier and Roamio. I just dumped TWC/Charter over price increases, went through guided setup for my OTA antenna with which I get about 89 channels in LA. Not the end of the world. Any shows I actually watched I can get. One way or another. I have DirectvNow on a FireTV, and that is working well for me. I tried SlingTV but it lacked a couple of channels I wanted. But as the October thread discussed, we have all these apps on Tivo! There is a HULU app right now, and you might know that HULU showed a live tv service at CES in January. It will have a cloud DVR. This brings the question, will the HULU app support the live streaming service from HULU? We don't know. I did request Tivo support for live streams from HULU, and they responded. Amazon is also working on a live streaming service, and we do have an Amazon app. Comcast supports ROKU now, for your full Comcast subscription. How long before Comcast tries to sell us all TV in non-Comcast areas? If the streaming is working that's where their growth is. Millions of new customers for them. And no cable card to try to get to work. I am pretty sure Netflix is looking into live streaming too. We have a Netflix app. I sent Tivo a request for an app for DirectvNow, especially with the ability to record from live. That would be all I need. I also requested it from DirectvNow. I don't know who writes those apps, Tivo can and maybe the other company can, but I don't know for sure. I also requested a SlingTV app from Tivo. So here we are, with a radical Tivo DVR, 10+ streaming apps, but the ones we need are just not there yet. Clearly the Tivo company acknowledges the necessity for streaming on Tivo, with all the apps we already have. I do think the HULU app would have to be supported to work with what HULU sells, which if a month or so is live streaming. If that were recordable I would be in! Tivo would be an excellent cord cutting solution, the Tivo company would have no problem selling boxes if the DirectvNow, SlingTV or HULU apps would replace cable completely and work in the guide. And be recordable. With the way the market is changing if the Tivo company does not support about everything I mentioned they will have no customers at all in a couple of years. Their survival depends on it. Maybe it doesn't matter anymore.
