    I'm curious on how the starting of content will work from the various apps. Will it launch into Netflix's user interface? Play the episode directly and come back to the Tivo front end after it ends? Hopefully we can do a "OnePass" as well.

    According to this, no.

    About Apple Pay for merchants

    A front page google result from 2014 said Apple took a 0.15% cut then.

    I’m also curious how app switching will work. Guess it depends on how much memory is in this thing. My Firestick 4k doesn’t seem to hold video apps in memory very long. Hoping this is better.

    I haven't seen any discussion of TiVo's Recommendations feature on the Stream 4K--will be interesting to see if the feature fares better there than on TiVo TE4 DVRs.

    Did you read the article though? They’re going to have content aggregation throughout the apps, just like this Stream 4K. Maybe this is going to be another clone, similar to and joining the AirTV Mini and Stream 4K.

    I just placed my second order for a TiVo Stream 4K. The order numbers are over 37500 now.

    And the FedEx tracking for the order I placed this afternoon shows a delivery on Saturday. Hopefully FedEx doesn't deliver it to the wrong address.

    It is just an app, like Ive been saying but Dan thinks it takes over the Android UI. Hulu is surprising here, There Dan is right and looks like their clout got Hulu in there. The remote will be awesome as finally I will be able to channel up/down with Sling and Pluto with dedicated buttons.

    So do you think this app can just be loaded on something like a Shield or AirTV Mini to get the same functionality, sans the cool remote of course.

    Well that’s exactly what I’m asking..........

    Can someone with an AndroidTV device check the Google Play App Store to see if that Stream 4K app is there, ready to be downloaded?

    In that case the answer is no. If it's not in the Play store (not there yet) or the Amazon app store (not there either), there's nowhere to get it.

    Oh believe me.....someone will find it!

    Have you personally checked all those app stores? Not being argumentative, seriously curious is all.

    I guess this snippet from this article I posted above answers this question. It’s “proprietary” to the Stream 4K:

    ”......The Stream also includes a proprietary TiVo Stream app designed to surface content from all of your streaming "bundles" in a single place, powered by TiVo's search and metadata technology......”

    TiVo Stream 4K takes on Roku, Amazon Fire TV with $50 Android TV dongle
