TiVo launches new feature – Universal Swivel Search

TiVo is launching a new feature on Tuesday, Universal Swivel Search. TiVoPony has announced it in a post at TiVoCommunity.com and USA Today already has an article on it. It will be rolling out to units with broadband over the next six weeks.

Universal Swivel Search (USS) is a new search feature available to TiVo owners with broadband connected units. It is ‘universal’ in that it searches not just programming information for broadcast content, but also any TiVoCast content – which includes Amazon Unbox. You can ‘swivel’ on one data point to new results – such as other shows connected by an actor, or a category. It is a very free-form way to search and explore related content. Ordering Amazon Unbox content from within USS isn’t available yet, but it is ‘coming soon’.

If you want to be one of the first to get it, sign up for the priority list. The product page also has video demos of USS in use.
