TiVo Launches iPhone Web App
TiVo is hopping on the iPhone bandwagon by launching the public beta for a new web app that will let you “browse, search and discover” TV shows on any platform and in any browser. Users can set their TiVo DVR remotely from anywhere with the app, and search by actor, title, director, and keyword, as well as browse Daily Recommendations and Most Popular. It also has an “If you like this…” tool for finding new shows.
“TiVo started out making television a more convenient, personal experience, and this is the next step to give television lovers total control over their media. Whether you are standing in line at the bank or talking about a new show with friends at dinner, you can now find and record shows whenever, wherever, a perfect tool for everyone,“ said Jim Denney, vice president of product marketing at TiVo Inc.
The new app also combines features from Amazon Video on Demand, Jaman, and YouTube. They hope to have on-demand streaming movies and TV shows from NetFlix by December as well.
