Amazon Unbox on TiVo | A mixed bag of satisfaction and disappointment

TiVo Amazon Poll

I often like to poke my nose around the TiVo community forum to see what TiVo users are saying and thinking. With the launch of Amazon Unbox I decided to ask them whether they were pleased or disappointed with the new TiVo Amazon Unbox service.

From 141 people that answered the poll 55% were pleased while 45% were disappointed. While more people were pleased it looks like a lot of Amazon Unbox customers are not happy.

Many of the issues raised are actually the fault of the content owners rather than the Amazon Unbox service itself, such as high prices and lack of content.

I’m pretty interested in finding out what is annoying people the most about TiVo Unbox so let me know now by voting in the poll below.

    Also, unbox video doesn’t support any closed captioning for the hard of hearing.

    ditto last comment, there needs to be checkbox in the list for closed caption. This is different than subtitle so should be separate checkbox.

    I have a wireless cable modem connection for my TiVo. The biggest problem is download time. I have not used the service in nearly 8 months, because of this. Amazon is publishing times of a little under an hour for a full length feature film with a DSL connection (which bandwith can vary greatly from location to location). I tried again today. I started a download at 11AM and it is nearly 4PM. Only 40 minutes of the film have downloaded. At this rate the film will not be downloaded before my guests arrive at 7PM. Never again.
