Starting the thread: keep it clean and on point. Thank you
Tivo plus a Roku = total tv solution.
Tivo Plus is an app for streaming boxes is my guess. IN the future maybe Tivo is headless. just an off the cuff guess. I haven't put much thought into it.
TiVo tosses the product qualifier "Plus" around way too much ... TiVo Desktop Plus, Roamio Plus, BOLT+, TiVo Bridge Plus ... and they haven't all been pluses.
Based on the very little context we have it almost sounds like a service. Not sure what kind of service they'd offer though. Unless they've decided to offer their own skinny bundle paired with a cloud DVR.
Recording fails because of TiVo Plus Service Feature?

Tivo with fries...
TiVo looks to stream into the future with a new console
That’s nothing but a re-writing of the Bloomberg story with zero new info.
Fake news. Sad!
Well, when half the articles on websites are just regurgitated content farms...
Later this month, TiVo plans to announce new international customers, and in October it will unveil a new product, TiVo Plus, that better integrates new streaming services with the company’s core TV console.
So what OnePass was supposed to do?
Yes, 50% of the content around the internet is simply rewordings of another site's original article.
Yeah, that was my initial thought too. They're gonna charge for usage of the new TiVo apps for Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, and Android TV and call that platform/service TiVo Plus.
Or as krkaufman suggests, TiVo Plus is some kind of souped-up version of OnePass that simply better integrates the existing apps on the TiVo platform. But how could that be a "new product"? Maybe the journalist simply used an inexact word and should have called it a "new feature".
OTOH, what if they're introducing a way for streaming app content to be pulled from an external streaming device into a TiVo DVR? Could that be done with HDMI passthrough (like the Xbox used to do)? Or maybe some kind of agreement in place between, say, Tivo and Roku? (Although it's hard to see any streaming platform signing up to cooperate with a system that lets you avoid their UI, including its ads. Unless maybe they were receiving subscription money for the feature.)
So, yeah, probably not. Seems pretty far-fetched. Although such a scenario comes the closest to matching the exact wording in the article: "integrates new streaming services with the company’s core TV console".
Well, they'd do well to offer a service of sorts for Roku users similar to the OnePass feature, that allows an aggregated watchlist ... capable of launching playback of a given program via the associated service's app, including via the to-be-released TiVo streaming apps. On arriving for a visit to her place, my sister was complaining about the inability to create a "watchlist" on her Roku that allows her to save specific shows or videos for later viewing, relieving her of the need to remember from which service each program is streamed.
There is a you tube video showing a Tivo app for Roku, AppleTV and s third febice
I think it was a recast from Amazon. Does this work with your cable service??
Those apps are not available yet.
Yeah. They have their Roku Feed feature, which sort of does that. But the TV app on Apple TV does a way better job of creating an aggregated watchlist (with the exception of Netflix content, which refuses to participate).
FireTV lets you do it too, sort of. You can add (most) shows to your WatchList from Search.
