[TiVo] RCN TiVo Opera App Store Launch

All, We will be soft launching the TiVo Opera App store on 2/10 across all markets, It will take a couple days to map all boxes, I just wanted to share the list of apps that will be part of the initial launch here @ RCN.

These vary from Screensaver's , Movie Trailers , Games , Weather , Video Portals and social networking apps.

I would appreciate some feedback on this launch Most apps are really good, a few are meh These apps are very similar if not the same you would see on some Samsung and other Smart connected T.V.'s. Whats nice is you can select the ones you like and save them to a MY Apps section of the Opera Store.

I have no idea what to do here? If I google "opera ap", it seems to be a way to purchase apps for mobile phones.

There is a "my apps" key on Tivo Central, but none of these things comes up.

I'm not seeing the Opera App Store or new Pandora here yet, either. Maybe a couple of network connections will make it show up.

Restart your box, it will show up...

or you can restart your HDUI by Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up and hit Play Play...

I've been playing around with the Opera apps a little, and I've gotta say that I'm really impressed with how responsive they are on the Q. It's especially nice to have the weather and social media apps. I see a lot of potential for future development on the HTML5 platform.

Vimeo was really cool to have and looked great. I tried Mahjong Fruits and couldn't figure out the controls. Accuweather app looked nice too...I tried another one, I think it was Uinterview, that said it was not available in my country.

Being Im a fitness guy I took a look at Netfit TV and the other fitness app(name escapes me). Wasn't impressed at all. They were low resolution older Richard Simmons looking type videos. I cant imagine the other apps being this bad.

Agreed, Some apps are done really well, I really like the Instagram one.. But with Treasures there are some not so good ones.. But it's nice to have social networking, and other apps on there that we have been dying to get on the box. Ever since we lost yahoo weather 2 years ago I've been asking / begging for a weather app.

This is just the start, we should start seeing lots of more apps hitting that Opera Store over the next year. ..
