TiVo Offers Free App for iPhone, iPad

TiVo Inc. recently introduced the free TiVo App for iPhone and iPad users, offering an innovative way to interact with its digital video recorders (DVRs) at home or remotely.

TiVo DVR users, including Suddenlink customers where Tivo’s Premiere and Premiere XL DVRs are available, can now enjoy an enhanced viewing experience using the TiVo App. It allows customers to search, browse, discover and share comments about programs without interrupting what they’re watching on their TiVo box.

“You can quickly surface new content, view guides, schedule and manage recordings, get recommendations, or investigate a particular actor’s entire resume — all using intuitive, gesture-based iPad interaction,” announced TiVo. “It even enables you to post comments about a specific show or movie on your Twitter or Facebook page.”

Check here for a video on the TiVo App’s features and a link to download it. Those who don’t currently have a Suddenlink-TiVo DVR can still sample the TiVo experience through the guest mode, browsing, searching, and scrolling through program and channel guides.

Where available, Suddenlink is the only multichannel TV service provider to offer TiVo Premiere and Premiere XL DVRs. The company plans to expand the availability of the devices to additional markets this year.
