Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The interactive elements do work on the V6. It's not surprising that the older TiVo doesn't support them though. The hardware design is around 10 years old.

More likely afterwards knowing them.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

VM seem to be pushing Starz Play at the moment.
Does anybody know if you sign up to this on Tivo via Virgin Media, whether you get a Starz Play account you can also use to access content on other platforms like Amazon Prime?

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Any StarzPlay account you may have is NOT linked to TiVo. It is an add-on on TiVo.

It is the same on Amazon Prime - if you add it on Amazon Prime it is not linked to the StarzPlay website (or TiVo).

So not like Netflix then, where one account covers any platform. If you have Amazon Prime, presumably better to sign up via that rather than VM as that would give access via other connected devices as well as only the TV. Same price (£4.99) on both.

Yes, not an ideal situation. All they need is a log-in screen. I hope Virgin and Starz Play sort this out between them.

It would need far more than that. Think about what actually happens when you log in to something.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Sounds like your better off taking a sub to starz through Amazon then you play on Smart Tv with Prime app or mobile device.

I was thinking about a similar process to Netflix. Once you set up an account with them, you can log in through your V6. I am not clear why Starz Play should be any different. VM is not making the process of signing up very easy. The sooner they start offering the SVOD services as part of a bundle with an easy way of subscribing to them, the better for everyone.
