TiVo app comes to Android


Those who are still keen on using TiVo would like to know that a companion app is now available for phones and tablets. The app will provide a program guide, will act as a remote, check your recording schedule, and so much more. Take a look at the full list straight ahead:

Guide – Find what’s on in an instant by channel, date and time without interrupting the show you’re watching. From here you can schedule a recording, add shows to your Season Pass recordings, or start playing a show if it’s currently on.

Search – Looking for something specific? Search for a show or movie by title and get results from TV and the web. When you find something that looks interesting, you can order a movie from here or schedule a recording—all with the simple press of a button.

Info – Call up information about a show in seconds and see all relevant details at a glance in Info. From here, you can order a Season Pass recording, explore the cast and crew, and see which online partners deliver the show.

Info (Actor) – Interested in an actor appearing in the show you’re watching? Dig deeper into that actor’s entire career with a single tap. See what other shows and movies they’ve appeared in and record a show or order a movie from here.

My Shows – Check in on what you’ve got waiting in your own personal entertainment lineup in My Shows. Not only can you sort by date and title, you can monitor your available recording capacity with the handy disk space meter.

Season Pass Manager – Prioritize and edit your Season Pass recordings with intuitive drag-and-drop functionality in Season Pass Manager.

Remote – Take total control of your entertainment with your choice of two great TiVo remote control options: a full-scale replica of a classic TiVo remote or an intuitive, gesture-based remote control.

Find it in the Google Play Store.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. You mean a tablet app. The mobile app has been around for some time.

  2. Yeah. I’ve had the
    mobile version for several months too

  3. Yeah, should be retitled “Tivo Tablet app comes to Android” as the phone app has been on my Nexus and Thunderbolt for several months now.

    TIP: It’s fun to mess with the wife by controlling the Tivo in the living room while taking a dump in the bathroom.

  4. Being able to Swype to find my shows rather than typing in each letter is reason enough to get this. Access to the guide, my list of recorded shows, season pass manager and to-do list make it beyond worth it. I love having my phone as a remote as well so this is a no-brainer for me.

    btw, anyone having trouble getting it to recognize your TiVo on your home network, make sure that you are on the same network as your TiVo, enable the Network Remote Tool on your TiVo, and disable any Wireless Isolation features on your router.
