    It isn’t going to do anything. Vudu needs to get off there rear. Go call them out. They need to update there app. They have been notoriously slow for updating apps

    That's a poor excuse. TiVo had a Vudu app with all prior models. Why not release the current version and then update? Would make much more sense than going a year plus with the "coming soon" tag on the Vudu app. TiVo had the relationship.... It shouldn't require their customers to fight their battles for them.

    It’s not up to tivo. It is up to vudu. And with the recent sale I would expect vudu to disappear soon

    I agree. Vudu is probably never coming to the Edge and and it wouldn't surprise me to see it deleted from older TiVo devices as well.

    Tivo needs to create an environment where people want to do the app development though. they need to incentivize developers to work with them, it's part of being a good development partner.

    FWIW Walmart is selling/sold VuDu to Fandango so i imagine that development is stalled until Fandango figures out what to do.

    Probably smeeking here but it would sure be nice if TiVo were to get us a FandangoNow app since FandangoNow looks like it will stay for the longer term while Vudu rides off into the sunset eventually.

    Fandango needs to get you the app. Not TiVo

    Vudu is installed in far more locations/devices than FandangoNow. It would be mind boggling for them to dump and walk away from devices with this acquisition. That isn't going to get them more customers overall.

    FandangoNow was actually a previous purchase by Fandango ( from Dreamworks and Technicolor M-GO business). Since acquiring something that has relatively high overlap with that, it doesn't particularly point to that piece necessarily had the key infrastructure ( back end and scaling ) and revenue stream to anchor the business around .

    if Vudu has better infrastructure then it would make more sense to fold FandangoNow into Vudu's set up and either merge customer databases and authentication. (Vudu customers who used walmart ID will probably need an account migration at some point. ) . Also may need to do a name change (e.g, "FandangoVudu" ). Both might services might get migrated to whatever Peacock is using. ( Comcast doesn't need 3-5 different backends over the long term. And have enough resources don't need to do anything drastic and/or short-sighted in the short term. )

    Tivo apps could be left because just not getting any update.

    I know it’s off topic, but any sign of Dolby Vision yet since you apparently got an update that added Vudu?

    It would not be a software update. Apps are loaded independent of software

    I don’t have a 4K tv - so I won’t be able to verify if that was added/corrected.

    It may be an option in the settings menu, just greyed out.

    I don't have Dolby Vision, but I was able to watch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in UHD. I didn't see anything in Vudu's Settings relating to video.
