    Then they shouldn't falsely advertise what they can't deliver.

    :rolleyes:. I guess I would be frustrated too Especially if I had Atmos/DV gear and was looking to EDGE/VUDU to satisfy my state of the art jones.

    Tivo's HTML5 app platform is dead and has also been abandoned by smart tv and bluray player makers. Vudu's not going to develop for a dead platform. It's Tivo's responsibility to provide a relevant platform for 3rd parties to develop for.

    Doesn’t change the fact that until Vudu releases a new app your not going to see it

    And this thread doesn't change the fact that Vudu is unlikely to cooperate. Tivo has all but abandoned its consumer DVR base including the newly released edge.

    iI dont own an Edge but would be very angry if I did. It does seem as if they have abandoned thier newest device. Is anyone out there getting all that was promised by this machine?

    Yep. To me, any answer is fine. I just want to know what's going on so I can choose how to spend my money. I straight up asked tivo support what was going on and they simply didn't respond. They wouldn't answer the question. I asked 3 times. It's super weird.

    This is really getting ridiculous, still no Vudu on the Tivo Edge. After I purchased my TiVo edge back in November 2019 I realized the VUDU app wasn’t available despite being in all the advertising I was assured it you would be up and running in a matter of weeks, obviously that was an out right lie. I need to know why this app still isn’t working and when it will be available, product support for the Tivo Edge is nonexistent.

    I would recommend writing and snail mailing a respectful but direct letter addressed to TiVo’s CEO. No guarantees, but those tend to get responded to even if it’s not the answer you want and it avoids dealing with the call centers or getting lost in the email thicket.

    You can email TiVo all you want. But you need to go after Vudu

    I realize Vudu has to write the app, but the post I was responding to had to do with TiVo’s responses (uninformed or false promises and lack of product support) not to mention TiVo still advertises Vudu as an app on the Edge.

    Still no Vudu for Edge! And now Vudu on my Vox Mini that's connected to the Edge stopped working too. It loads up fine but when I try to watch a movie it shutdowns and goes back to TiVo home screen. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Hello - new member looking at switching from Channelmaster DVR+ to Tivo

    I would blame both companies. When Tivo was developing the Edge they should have pursued the securing of apps then. There should have been some discussion of porting the Bolt software over. Any problems or feature adds should have been negotiated through.

    I'm not an expert - just educating myself enough to make my next purchase, but it seems to me both companies are in danger of becoming irrelevant. I like Vudu, but have always been leery of purchasing versus renting their product and this is why. It seems much of what they provide can be found now on Prime now, or am I wrong?

    While I sympathize with anyone who has a library, is the absence of Vudu significant if you do not?

    Fandango is buying Vudu. I submit that it's good news - might get them off top dead center. Just announced yesterday 4/20/20

    What I don't understand is why is no one publicly calling out Tivo on their b.s. attitude towards Edge owners? I don't use Twitter but apparently other people here do so why not use it to pressure Tivo to do the right thing? Also, why is the Tech media completely ignoring that fact the Tivo is treating the Edge like abandonware just months after its launch. Could you imagine Apple, Google or Samsung being able to skate by treating its customers in this manner and everyone looking the other way?

    I would buy an Edge. At half the price. The Dolby Vision and Atmos are great features. A box that does not provide all that was advertised such as Vudu? You cant ask top dollar. They could move a lot of units if it was cheaper. Then again the Stream 4k will check all the boxes, streaming-wise.

    Have to agree with all that's been posted here. I have been a long time loyal TiVo customer and for the first time since my TiVo series 2, I'm considering going to a Comcast box. They seemed to have of abandoned any development. What are we really paying for?
