TiVo Premier iPad App Released

TiVo has released its Premier App for Apple's iPad tablet device, touting it as a command centre for the TiVO Premier box.

The free app, which is available for download on Apple's iTunes iPad App Store, allows users to browse TV guides for new shows and access other options without interrupting playback.

“The new app – available today – is essentially command central for your TiVo Premiere box. With this app there’s no need to interrupt what you’re watching to browse for new shows and explore all your entertainment options,” the company said in a blog post.

According to the company, the app will allow users to post directly to Facebook and Twitter and share what they are watching on TiVO with their friends. Users will also be able to chat with their friends while watching a programme.

Other features include the ability to schedule a one-time recording or Season Pass recording from within the app, to manage all Season Pass recordings and To-Do Lists, as well as the ability to browse recorded shows and launch a pre-recorded show on TiVO Premier.
