Re: Stream Netflix movies to Tivo

Can't see that happening (Lovefilm subs to VM) and if its just a rental list app then what's the point? There is such an app for Andriod phones but I can see the point of that, if you wanted to change what film Lovefilm would deliver next while you were at work

Re: Stream Netflix movies to Tivo

I hope we get full apps for Netflix and Lovefilm - but may end up with a very limited app like Spotify.

Re: Stream Netflix movies to Tivo

Would be a waste of a killer feature (dedicated 10mb connection) which no other PVR could match.

 

Oh well, my Xbox 360 streams Netflix and Lovefilm content just fine with a superior user interface. I just need to stream in STM friendly hours.

Re: Stream Netflix movies to Tivo

[ Edited ]

From what I know the Netflix service on US TiVo is something of a "killer app".  A smart business move would have been for VM to talk with Netflix, discuss when/how the UK edition of the service would work in terms of protocols and have TiVo (company) start working on a suitable version of the US Netflix app.  Then, with a bit of luck, on the day of Netflix UK coming out VM TiVo users would already have it, with a free three month (rather than regular one month) subscription to boot.  What a coup that would be, eh?

 

But VM usually only do smart business moves by accident, so it seems.  Obviously so, if this customer can outthink them.

You'll use the same Netflix login as you would on your PC or other device.
