Amazon app to launch November 10th?

According to MediaBoy’s blog, the Amazon video app will launch on Virgin Media TiVo boxes on November 10th. No confirmation yet from Virgin Media.

UPDATE: No sign or word of the Amazon video app on November 10th. There’s some speculation on Cable Forum that it is being delayed until the New Year, possibly to tie in with the roll out of the V6 hardware

Anyone checked their boxes yet?

It's not there as of 3.30pm. May still appear - VM Customer Services don't know anything about it, but that's not unusual.

I can't help thinking that if this was imminent, that there would be something 'out there' from VM and/or Amazon to announce it, or the V6 info we've seen would include it...? Hopefully we can have an update soon (The Grand Tour starts next week...!)

I agree with Simon - all the ballyhoo about it starting on the 10th and then... nothing - as you said, maybe we should wait for announcements from VM instead of rumours on Digital Spy & Cable Forum

I checked my Tivo box on Wednesday 9th November. Amazon app there alongside all other apps - Netflix etc. Logged into my Amazon Prime account and starting browing all films, videos etc. Great. Today 11 November no sign of the app! Phoned Virgin, no one there had even heard there was to be an app. Unbelievable!

If the app appeared on the 9th, but gone again I'm guessing that a last minute bug has been found or something?
