This is true currently, but the new FCC regulations that go into
effect July 1 require them to update the tuning adapter to support at
least 4 streams. So hopefully this will be resolved by the time the
Prime comes out (not sure what sort of penalties, if any, there might
be to entice them to be in compliance as soon as possible).
