    This morning, my daughter was getting ready to launch Amazon Prime and pick something to watch and commented that there's a "new Amazon". I went over to look and noticed Yahoo! Screen was now available as a streaming video provider on my Roamio box. I didn't have a chance to launch it, but thought I'd mention it for others who might be interested.

    This came out of the blue; I don't recall hearing any rumors on this. Who knows what else is in the pipeline.

    Does this mean we have Vevo on our TiVo's now because Vevo is available on screen.yahoo.com?

    It took another connect but it's there. Not bad. 1080/p24 DD2ch for some content also.

    This is awesome for Community.....now just waiting for it to work with the ever-slow-to-update OnePass.

    Ooops! With no announcement or recognition from Tivo, how is this anything but an accidental release? I would not be surprised if it disappeared for a time. No reports yet from a premiere owner...

    Not sure Yahoo Screen is big enough for an announcement. Would imagine most people would go....huh? What's Yahoo Screen?!? :p

    Now if HBO Go showed up......

    I do not see Yahoo! Screen on either my Premiere Elite or the Mini it hosts. I forced a new network connection, but no sign of Yahoo! Screen. I assume it is showing up as a separate check-box item under My Video Providers for those who have it?

    Yes.

    However, for both my boxes, it was checked by default so I saw it from Tivo Central.

    Thanks for that confirmation, Kevin. I think it's routine for new additions to the providers list to be checked by default, but it's not on my Premiere's list so I presume this is exculsively a Roamio option for the time being. Still, I'll keep an eye out for it since it's something we might like to use in future.

    It was checked on one of our Pros but I had to un-check it, and then recheck it, to get it to show in Tivo Central.

    As alluded to earlier, Community is not included in OnePass yet. The contents of the app include Community, SNL, BuzzFeed, ABCNews, and others. Vevo was not included, to answer another earlier question.

    Surprise! Yes, the new Yahoo! Screen app is being rolled out to boxes over the next few days. We expect a OnePass for Community to start showing Season 6 episodes by the end of the week.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks

    If I still have my OnePass from when it aired on NBC, will Yahoo episodes show up in that folder if I change the OnePass to Recordings & Streaming?

    I'm thinking it will because the options for OnePass are smart enough to know about the seasons, including Season 6.

    So cool, I stand corrected. Is this for Roamios and Premieres?

    Great news. I was going to try and figure out how to get Community onto my TV, and now it looks like I won't have to do anything special. Thanks, TiVo!
