It's not BS, Disney has to decide if they feel it's worth producing a Tivo specific app and it makes perfect sense for them not to for such a small niche market.The standard status line that it's not TiVo's fault is likely BS.
I spend 95%+ of my time watching apps. The 5% I watch actual TiVo is because there are still a few shows I can't get via apps without commercialsNow that Tivo+ is here I think it is less likely that Tivo will ever add any new apps to their platform. Any time you spend watching these other apps is less potential time you could spend watching Tivo+.
But there is "something" I can do about it, my next hardware purchase will be supported by Disney.Either way you don't have the app and either way there's nothing you can do about it.

I dont understand where these "low" installed base numbers are coming from, from TiVo Wiki "As of January 31, 2016, TiVo reported 6.8 million subscribers."
todays headline, "Disney+ Reaches 10 Million Subscribers" I would hope if a service has 10 million subscribers in less then a week that TiVo would find a way to include itTiVo uses the same HTML5 app platform that older Sunmsung TVs use. On top of that they have a very convoluted way of submitting an app to TiVo for inclusion on he system. And in addition to all that they have less than 100k users. The only new apps we're getting are from little startups that are targeting everything. We've specifically been told that we will never get the newest Hulu.
This is why the next Mini will run Android TV. It's the only way for them to stay current on the apps without having to manage it all themselves. Still not sure why they didn't go that same route with the Edge.
TiVo does not make the apps, the streaming services do.todays headline, "Disney+ Reaches 10 Million Subscribers" I would hope if a service has 10 million subscribers in less then a week that TiVo would find a way to include it
Can we all give Doug an AMEN for his comments!I've abandoned TiVo Apps completely, they're old, slow, and basically disappointing or broken; not worth bothering with at all anymore. Now I move back and forth between Roku and FireTV for them. I'm favoring Roku right now because FireTV annoys me with it making the Amazon stuff more a built-in part of the interface than all the app stuff and for lack of any real TiVo-like integration of content from multiple parties, I just want to go to the app I want and get what it offers from there and be done with it.
Heck, I don't really even want it built into my TV anymore because I'm tired of old crappy penny pinching slow CPUs in that part of the hardware and no way to upgrade that portion of the system.
