New TiVo Roamio DVR Streams to the iPhone and iPad
TiVo has announced the launch of the TiVo Roamio DVR letting you connect to your recordings wherever you are.
"Now, wherever you roam your TiVo Roamio is there. In the next room, in the kitchen, in a hotel room across the world -- connecting you right to your living room TV recordings, so you can get them immediately wherever you are," said Tom Rogers, TiVo's President and CEO. "Moreover, you can get all your regular cable channels, the best DVR features available, all combined with favorite streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube in one box, using one remote.
The TiVo Roamio DVR Series includes three models: TiVo Roamio ($199.99), TiVo Roamio Plus ($399.99) and TiVo Roamio Pro ($599.99). Roamio features four or six tuners and storage ranging from 75 hours to 450 hours of HD content. It ensures subscribers never miss a show again and have plenty of space for recordings. TiVo Roamio also includes integrated wireless and TiVo Stream functionality in certain models.
● Coming very soon, out-of-home streaming will allow subscribers to stream TV and recorded shows to your iPad or iPhone. The built-in TiVo Stream feature allows users to connect to their Roamio over Wi-Fi and watch recordings and cable channels almost ANYWHERE.
● New look and feel interface offers updated HD screens and fonts with nearly twice the performance. Browse and Search content even faster.
● "What to Watch Now" on the DVR provides an instantaneous personalized dashboard that immediately shows you the best programming available... right now. Quickly browse through the best sporting events, top 20 shows in that time slot.
● For users who just like a good channel guide, Roamio offers guide filters to quickly break down the options into only content you want to see. Choose to browse the guide by something as simple as Movies or Sports, or as specific as romantic comedies.
● All new application platform -- leveraging the new HTML 5 platform to support our apps, the TiVo Roamio runs the latest version of YouTube and Netflix with more on the way. The new platform will enable faster, more frequent additions to the TiVo platform.
● An improved remote will boast an RF connection, allowing Roamio to be placed behind closed cabinets or in another room altogether -- no line of sight is needed to operate your TiVo. Still, the remote retains the capability of learning commands to control all of your other equipment, allowing for the true one-remote solution.
● Anywhere you have an Internet connection, you have the ability to manage your DVR with your phone or tablet. The updated free TiVo mobile app available for tablets and smartphones (iOS and Android) offers remote Season Pass management, a recording scheduler that allows you to add or remove recordings and enhanced WishList management.
● TiVo Mini software has been updated to include Netflix and "dynamic tuning" to maximize the value of Roamio's capacity. This feature allows all of Roamio's tuners to be used for recording when they aren't actually streaming content to another screen. It's the ultimate whole-home DVR experience.
