TiVo is a set top video device that has garnered many fans who are interested in an alternative lifestyle for viewing TV as they want, when they choose. At CEDIA 2012, TiVo reaches out to iPad and iPhone users with advanced TiVo technologies and a special APP.
TiVo a leader in the advanced television entertainment market, announced the launch of its TiVo Stream, an accessory allowing TiVo® Premiere DVR users to watch recordings on their iPads or for the first time instantly stream their favorite shows and DVR content to their iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch in the house without interrupting normal viewing on the television. TiVo Stream is also the ideal TiVo accessory for entertainment fans on-the-go; allowing users to load it up and take their favorite recordings on any trip.
TiVo Stream is the first device to enable simultaneous streaming or downloading of recorded shows to up to four mobile devices without interrupting what is currently playing on TV. With support for up to four streams at once, users can now watch previously recorded and currently recording content over their home network, allowing mom to enjoy her favorite cooking program in the kitchen, dad to stay on top of the game while in the garage, and give the kids an opportunity to catch up with their favorite cartoons in the backyard.
For on-the-go users, TiVo Stream allows TV fans to download recordings from their TiVo Premiere DVR for viewing later outside of the home, via TiVo’s app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Users can download a one hour show to their mobile device in as little as 15 minutes and view it later even when not connected to a network. TiVo knows a device’s storage space is sacred, and lets users know how much space is required prior to downloading and gives them a choice of two file sizes, making it ideal for travelers.
TiVo Stream takes advantage of TiVo’s intuitive search and browsing experience that enables users to quickly and easily find or discover television and broadband program, then converts it to a format that’s easily viewable or downloadable to a compatible second-screen device. Additionally, content plays in the TiVo app, allowing users to navigate features such as and cast information, or scrub through a show. This compatibility creates a consistent experience – no matter where users watch.
The TiVo Stream is compatible with TiVo’s line-up of Premiere DVR products, including TiVo Premiere, TiVo Premiere XL, TiVo Premiere 4 and TiVo Premiere XL4. It requires TiVo’s free app for iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch to bring an intuitive on-screen experience and remote control operations to users’ compatible devices.
TiVo has never been a mainstream device but has maintained a growing set of users over the past 20 years. By opening a new streaming channel for the leading mobile devices, TiVo owners and new users can access tons of streaming videos. This Christmas, the tiny TiVo Stream is a great gift for your TiVo friends or you.
