    Lipstick on a pig. It’s still Sling TV lineup and service. He already knows he likes TiVo’s interface. He doesn’t know if he likes Sling’s service, which he can find out right now on any streaming device.

    I agree, nothing to do with the streaming pile of crap that is TiVo+. But that’s what his question was about.

    It’s not Sling’s service.

    Tivo will be selling a hardware dongle. It will work with multiple live tv streaming services, such as Sling but also YouTube TV, Hulu Live and anything else currently available on Android.

    Sling will have some extra integration in the guide with the TiVo UI but that’s it.

    Tivo is not selling Sling, not selling a service, and not selling a Sling-only device.

    So when then OP tries out the new dongle and tries to watch a channel in the TiVo UI integrated guide, which service would he have to subscribe to? Can he also not subscribe to that same service right now?

    This is the OP's comment I was responding to:
    We all know there is no new Tivo streaming service (besides Tivo+). Human beings sometimes don't state things exactly right. So we deduce what they meant by context. In this case he literally means, "I am looking forward to trying the streaming service on Tivo's new streaming device next month".

    We also all know that the service integrated into the UI, front and center is Sling TV. We know that Sling TV has been around for years and that anybody can try it anytime.

    Long story short, if the OP wants to try that "service" (Sling TV,) he can try it now. If we make a huge logical leap and assume he means some other service other than the one the Tivo UI is built around, also currently available on any Android TV device, then he can also try that service today as well without waiting for the Tivo Stream.

    @cwoody222, I'm beginning to think you are actually a robot.

    Besides using the word “service” the OP has expressed no interest in a live streaming tv service.

    Actually he’s stated that he is enjoying his TiVo with Suddenlink.

    Thinking that the use of the word “service” to mean that he’s shopping for a live streaming service to replace cable AND that he’s interested primarily in one that will work on TiVo’s new device AND in one that will be TIGHTLY INTEGRATED with the UI on TiVo’s upcoming new device seems like an awfully big leap.

    Awful lot of Assuming going on here. lol!

    Since I am the OP. I know what I meant, I simply am interested in the new Tivo Streaming device and its integrated service UI to possible replace my current Roku, Chromecast and yes even my Tivo Roamio if and when my current Suddenlink cable service becomes undesirable.

    My Roamio works great, but the availability of streaming apps on it is limited.

    I am currently evaluating YouTube TV on my Roku. I'm liking it but still prefer Suddenlink cable and the Roamio interface.

    When I do get the Tivo Streaming device I will likely evaluate Sling TV at that time.

    I'd much rather just stick with my current cable TV, but it appears that option will soon go the way of the Dinosaurs...

    I enjoy playing with new Technology, I do have a drawer full of "New Technology" collecting dust over the years that just did not work out well for me...
