TiVo Launches New Amazon Instant Video App!
Including Access to Amazon Prime Instant Video
TiVo is now bringing the new Amazon Instant Video app to TiVo Roamio and TiVo Mini devices offering access to the entire Amazon Prime Instant Video library including Amazon Original Series Alpha House and Transparent as well as kid’s original series Tumble Leaf, Creative Galaxy and Annedroids, at no additional cost to TiVo subscribers who are Amazon Prime members.
The Amazon Instant Video app for TiVo features an HD interface. In addition to Amazon Original Series, Amazon Prime members can enjoy unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, including HBO shows such as The Sopranos, True Blood and The Wire, as well as popular series like Downton Abbey, Under the Dome, 24, Extant, and Suits, in addition to children’s series including SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and Team Umizoomi, on TiVo Roamio and TiVo Mini devices as part of their Amazon Prime membership. In addition, all Amazon customers have access to hundreds of thousands of their favorite movies and TV episodes, including in-season day-after TV episodes and new release movies available to purchase on Amazon Instant Video via the new app.
The application will stream up to 1080p video quality, in addition to a fully updated viewer experience unavailable before to TiVo users. To enjoy this new feature, TiVo fans can simply log in to their existing Amazon Prime account through the TiVo box and start watching.
A quick app upgrade has started rolling out to replace the legacy application for existing users on the TiVo Roamio platform including on the TiVo Mini and users can expect the new app to hit their devices within the next week or so. The legacy application will still be available on the TiVo Premiere, Premiere XL, Premiere 4, Premiere XL4, Premiere Q, and Preview platforms, as well as Series2™ and Series3™ DVRs.
