    Remote is not backlit and I cant answer any slingtv questions, I have never subscribed to them so I am not 100% sure on that.

    Drat! I've been patiently waiting for the Stream 4K for months and finally gave up LAST NIGHT and bought a Roku. I should have checked Tivo first (but I would have expected an email from them announcing the roll-out)! Oh well, I just bought the Stream 4K and it's actually arriving 2 days before the Roku so I'll get to compare them side by side!

    I received a roll-out email, as well as a TiVo DVR message--but TiVo marketing is rather infamous in missing people in its email campaigns, and I typically seem to get them.

    So, if I'm a TiVo user and have Mini Vox boxes in most rooms already, does this new Stream 4K box add any other apps than Sling (which I don't need)? Still no AppleTV+ or Disney+ apps on anything TiVo, right?

    This is a android tv based streamer so it adds a ton of apps but takes away tivo access.

    The Stream 4K will be its own 'independent' box, it doesn't work with your Roamio/Bolt or Minis. I WISH it had been an add-on to the Roamio and integrated into that user interface, but it wasn't designed that way. I also have a Roamio main unit (6 tuner/tons of storage) and 4 Minis all talking over MoCa, works great. My plan is to hook the Stream 4K directly to an HDMI port on my AV amplifier/switcher and test it out. If I like it I'll have to add one Stream 4K to EACH of the TVs in bedrooms currently serviced by Minis (kind of sux that the Roamio and each Mini is also a "streaming device", but so many streaming services won't support these Tivo streaming devices it was time to move on).

    Where did you here about a 200hr DVR? Sling has been 50 hours.

    See link: CES 2020: TiVo enters the streaming fray, teams with Sling TV | Light Reading

    "Sling TV nets 'preferred' slot
    Early on, Sling TV will serve as the "preferred source" for pay-TV, providing access to Sling TV's live TV lineup, VoD library and cloud DVR service (TiVo's Sling TV integration will allow users to record up to 200 hours to the Sling TV cloud DVR). TiVo is also interested in forming similar partnerships with other virtual multichannel video programming distributors (vMVPDs), said Daniel Bethlahmy, consumer product marketing director at TiVo."

    What additional apps does it add? Is there a list somewhere similar to the one I linked?

    Hard to get a list since it's the Play store, it's always changing based on submissions by devs. It's nothing like the small list TiVo would maintain.

    Here are some links though; the first one could have some exclusives for that device and I know the second one is incomplete but it's a start.
    NVIDIA SHIELD has the Best Apps for TV Shows, Movies, Sports, and Music
    Apps for Android TV

    Yep. Standard shipping, looks like it came out of Fort Worth. Only a 3 hour drive, and they shipped FedEx.

    I wonder if that will still work when you have HBO through Amazon?

    Although I will cancel HBO in a few weeks. Before I pay for another month. Since Westworld Season 3 has ended.

    You can sign into HBO Now using your account from Amazon.

    There's a big delay here. Usually I get things in one day. But now it's been as long a week.

    Here's another profit center for TiVo: issue an optional "Remote 4K" for the streamer, with backlighting and some optional, programmable keys, e.g. for one's television and perhaps as streamer shortcuts (and perhaps include some other beneficial "extras"). Yep, the equivalent of a Slide Pro for the Stream 4K--people will buy it and TiVo makes $. And before this idea gets poo-poo'ed, Roku does it and presumably makes profit from it.

    Absolutely this and I would think a TiVo branded USB-C to gigabit ethernet adapter. A lot of the branded ones sell for a solid $30-$40 each.
