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
