TiVo Outs New Details On Companion Apps For iPhone, iPad


Revealed in the latest issue of CEPro Magazine, TiVo’s Director of Retail and Channel Marketing, Bard Williams, was quoted as describing the next iteration of the company’s companion apps for both iPhone and iPad as “beautiful” with an “easy-to-use interface” and set to offer users “complete control”.

It offers a beautiful, easy-to-use interface; complete control over management and program selection, a multi-touch remote that features gestures-based navigation, and the ability to manage and navigate Season Pass recording, your queue and info about cast, crew, similar shows – without interrupting your TV experience. When you’re not at home, the app still lets you interact with your Premiere for basic management and recording tasks.

Designed for both iOS and Android, set to offer a new set of protocols which will “enable two-way interaction with TiVo devices for things like managing shows, browsing TV guides and other tasks familiar to TiVo users”, about the only thing Williams didn’t reveal was the release date for the applications, which remains “unclear”, he says.

As most of you TiVo fans will already know, the firm released its FREE iPad app earlier this year, which now acts as a remote for its Premiere box. Direct iTunes link for TiVo for iPad below.
