Features of the TiVo App include:

  • NEW! TiVo Series3™ Support* — Now users who have TiVo Series3™, HD and HD XL DVRs can also download the app to browse, search and schedule recordings as well as make use of the reinvention of the TiVo remote.
  • Gesture-based controls — Take complete control of all recordings, even move forward and backward through a show with a simple tap or swipe.
  • Program Guide — Browse your full-screen TV program guide without interrupting TV viewing.
  • Schedule — Schedule one-time recordings and Season Pass® recordings from the device at home or on-the-go.
  • Get more from your shows and movies — Explore cast and crew and other recommendations of your favorite shows without interrupting the big screen.
  • Search — Search for all of your favorite TV shows, movies, actors or directors across both broadcast and broadband from Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, and more.
  • Share comments with your friends — From within the TiVo App, comment and share your thoughts on your favorite programming on Facebook or Twitter.

* TiVo Series3™, HD and HD XL DVR users will enjoy the app’s guide, scheduling, remote control, search and explore features, but these users should anticipate a smaller set of features and capabilities than TiVo Premiere users.
