iPad Fans: TiVo® Premiere App for the iPad Coming To a Second Screen Near You   by

For all of our iPad fans out there – listen up! TiVo’s best in class user interface is coming to a small screen near you.

We have just announced a powerful new TiVo app for the iPad, which will effectively turn your iPad into command central for your TiVo Premiere box. With the TiVo app for the iPad, you can search, browse, explore and share your favorite entertainment all without interrupting whatever is playing on your TV.

It is your second screen companion. We’ve created a true two-screen TV experience so you can access the full suite of TiVo capabilities on a second screen and right at your fingertips.

Something new that we’re bringing to the TiVo service with this app is the ability to post directly to Facebook and Twitter. You can now share with friends what you’re watching now or your thoughts on favorite shows directly from the TiVo iPad app.

Other cool features include:

- Browsing full-screen program guide without interrupting playback
- Scheduling one-time recordings and Season Pass® recordings with a few flicks of the finger
- Managing Season Pass recordings and the To-Do List: Delete and reprioritize recordings for your favorite shows
- Browsing your recorded shows and with the flick of a finger launch a video on your TiVo Premiere
- Searching for programs and actors: Search across broadcast TV and TiVo’s premium broadband providers—like Netflix and Amazon Video On Demand—and see integrated results

  2. Nick says:

  3. Coolpal says:

    pal :)

  4. David says:

    Just got a TiVo Premiere and I already have an iPad. So…any news on when the app is going to be released? I’ll be preparing a review on the TiVo Premiere and would love to include the app as well.

  5. Nick says:

    Why is this app not available yet? Your press release / marketing efforts are way off in terms of timing.

  6. Andy says:

    It’s been over a month now, can we get an update on this iPad app ?

  7. Keith says:

    Do we have a date for this???

  8. steve Ta says:

    STILL waiting for the promised App. This could be called bait-and-switch or, actually false advertising.

  9. John says:

    When will the TiVo app for the iPad be available. I’ve seen soon, soon and soon but I am getting tired of soon. When will it be released?

  10. John says:

    When will the TiVo app for iPad be released

  11. TiVo Editor says:

    Hi All, I know there is much anticipation for the timing of the app. TiVo expects the app to be available by the end of the month (January). we will keep you updated if there are changes to that timing!

  12. DJ says:

    The app is cool, but it would be so much better if they let you stream video from the TiVo and watch it on the iPad. They already let you transfer videos from one TiVo to another, why not to an iPad. I would love to be able to take a show to a place in my house that doesn’t have a TV.
