Well this is a bummer, while I am not a big fan of the interfaced for Xfinity On Demand app on Tivo I do love ability to easily access all those On Demand Movies, Shows etc.

Saw this message on my Tivo today:

'Effective 6/25/19, the Xfinity On Demand app will no longer be available on Tivo, and Xfinity On Demand content will not be accessible. The current platform connecting your Tivo to Xfinity On Demand runs on an out-of-date technology that cannot be upgraded or updated. ...'

I hope there is a replacement coming or this will take away from Tivo significantly.

Time to move on from TiVo I suspect. It's been treading water for a while now, but this might be the final piece that pushes it under the surface. I just wish there was a clear option to move to. The streaming services are all one big collection of trade-offs. FiOS will be here in my neighborhood by the end of the year and really looking forward to their Internet (which I had for years and loved before my last move), but their TV service also has no On Demand with TiVo so I might as well get their box if I went that way. Ugh. Really would have liked to avoid this move entirely.

I find this totally unacceptable. With all the new technology we should be getting more features not losing them.
I do have the Xfinity Box for on demand, I find is not as easy to use as the TiVo app. and now I won't be able to watch on demand on my Tivo mini.:(

Yeah waiting for Xfinity to offer app for Amazon Fire, have few of those already and TiVo is planning on releasing and App of their own too. If all goes well will sell TiVo Mini probably and just keep TiVo Roamio.

You are letting Comcast win, you realize?

Also, TiVo does not make the apps available, the service provider does.

I do find it funny that both of them are acting like it's nobody's fault. If Dish Network was on one end of this equation they would be pointing fingers for sure. What could Comcast have over TiVo now? Are they afraid Comcast will void all the cable cards out there if TiVo raises a fuss over Comcast screwing them out of this prominent feature of the TiVo Experience?
