TiVo Series2 users with broadband may notice a new feature on their units – look under ‘Find Programs’ and there is a new option at the bottom of the list – TiVoCast! This is a new way to manage your TiVoCast subscriptions right from the TiVo itself. You can subscribe to new content, change the settings for existing subscriptions, and even download individual past episodes. New flexibility for TiVoCast users! Formerly, you had to manage TiVoCast online, or via Showcases that popped up from time to time.
Also, as a first, this feature is actually implemented as an HME application. Selecting ‘TiVoCast’ from the menu seamlessly launches the TiVoCast HME application, allowing TiVo to implement this feature without a software update. And they’ll be able to update this application independently of TiVo software updates – expect to see more features implemented this way.
TiVo’s Director of TiVoCast Operations, E. Stephen Mack, posted the details in his blog.
