TiVo Launches iPad App22 Nov, 2010 By: Erik Gruenwedel
TiVo Inc. Nov. 22 said it has created its first Apple app that gives iPad tablet owners the ability to remotely control content on their digital video recorder.
Available on the Apple App Store (www.itunes.com/appstore) in the coming weeks, the free “TiVo Premiere App” enables users to search, schedule, browse, explore and share entertainment without interrupting what is playing on the TV.
Users must have a TiVo Premiere or TiVo Premiere XL box, in addition to a monthly service plan.
“We’re bringing TiVo’s innovative user interface from the TV directly to users’ fingertips, [and] taking the TV viewing experience to a whole new level,” said Jim Denney, VP and GM of product marketing for TiVo.
