TiVo Roamio

TiVo has begun the roll-out of their out-of-home streaming services. From now on, owners of a Roamio Pro or a Roamio Plus DVR can stream live TV and recorded content over Wi-Fi to iOS devices (5.1 and higher) at no extra costs. Support for streaming over 4G/LTE and to Android devices is scheduled for 2014. Also dowloading content to a mobile device for later viewing will be possible.
Note that streaming to a mobile device is limited to one device at the time and that there are still shows that are not allowed to be streamed or downloaded to a mobile device. Visit www.tivo.com for more details.

TiVo will start pushing the new app with the streaming functionality as of today.

Partnership between TiVo and Flingo brings apps and more streaming video to the DVR


TiVo, one of the first companies taking on the traditional television industry with a, at the time, revolutionary DVR set-top box allowing viewers to watch TV programs at their convenience, did lose some momentum but is fighting back. Today, they announced a partnership with Flingo, world’s largest publisher of Smart TV apps. This combination brings a lot of interesting features to the TiVo DVR.

By bringing Flingo’s LaunchPad video platform into TiVo Premiere set-top boxes, over seventy streaming on-demand video applications will be available for instant viewing and also Flingo’s complete portfolio of applications, including video content from TMZ, A&E, History, Showtime, TV Guide, and over fifty other content partners.

Flingo’s LaunchPad will replace the  TivoCast platform for the around 3 million current users of a TiVo Premiere Box.
