I wasn’t seeing the TiVo+ ad in the channel guide in my TiVo Mini. Then, for the first time on this device, I actually selected TiVo+ from the main menu, just to check out its performance. That was a mistake. It went to a black screen for about 15 seconds. Just a black screen. I thought the TiVo Mini had crashed. :-/
To add insult to injury, *NOW* I see the annoying AF ad for TiVo+ in my guide, for channels I can’t even access, because the TiVo Mini won’t allow me to click to “Accept.”
I’ve been on a rollercoaster with TiVo since their very first model. I’ve had very many TiVos and have been one of their most loyal cheerleaders since the beginning. But now, I have completely lost all faith in their ability to deliver a customer-friendly experience. All things considered, YouTube TV is looking better and better as a DVR service. I doubt I’ll ever buy another piece of TiVo hardware again. And I have zero faith that their promised AppleTV app will *ever* come out.
What a sad end for a once-innovative company.
Yeah, TiVo+ is a complete bust, a turn off, and I despise that I can’t even ignore it. Ads for it in the channel guide? For a service that doesn’t even work, and folks don’t even want? It all just feels like a sad joke.
