Interesting theory, anything to back that concept up? Not to say that isn't/wasen't possible especially when you have (for the most part) a monopoly on DVR's. .
Most of Tivo's revenue comes from the Cable industry. Follow the money.

So is there gojng to be a petition or call out to get disney+ added to the apps? I guess espn should be on that list too since Disney is bundling.

Tivo was one of the first set top boxes to offer Netflix streaming and they proceeded to lose millions of retail subscriptions. Most of the customer complaints about Tivo are the substandard streaming apps. Tivo's major competitors do not directly integrate the the streaming functionality into the DVR hardware. Tivo must provide a set top box app that allows streaming from the Tivo to other devices with superior streaming apps.

Eh. I really don't care to use a firestick, roku or what not if my mini vox does it all and wired to boot. I don't want multiple devices connected if I don't have to. I want one device at each video source and that's it. Well, outside of a BD player, but I only have that in the theater room.

I don't want to start up the TV and then navigate navigate navigate. Something to be said to turning on the TV and you're watching live TV. Something that's lost in a streaming world.

Old paradigm. I too was raised in the top-down world. My kids don't get that and all their TV is streamed on demand. Appointment TV does not exist.

I use Tivos for the OTA, a Roku for streaming, and one open browser computer for less savory sources....but the old school reality is gone.

In Vienna we sit, in late night cafe. Straight Connection, on T.E.E.

hi Speedlaw,
if you have internet service it is often free or costs less or doubles internet throughput/tier if you ADD BASIC TV. Basic TV includes two F R E E HD-DTA with ZERO MONTHLY COST. The low-cost/zero-cost HD-DTAs provide old-school-reality TV ergonomics, instant on/off with no navigation bs, fastest-channel-changing, easy volume control, closed-captions.
yours,
Racer Xlaw

If you believe your words, why are you a TiVo customer. Makes more sense to subscribe to streaming services that offer the programming you like on demand.
