DetailsMichelle Clancy | 10 June 2015

PVR pioneer TiVo has announced TiVo Online, a new online content discovery portal.

"The tools available today to find what viewers most want to watch across all sources of programmes are not comprehensive, not personalised or are difficult to use. There just isn't a great way to hone in on exactly what you care about and are most interested in until now with TiVo Online," explained Tom Rogers, TiVo's president and CEO commenting on the launch.

"TiVo Online is the service you can rely on to guide you right to what you want from cable and video-on-demand (VOD), streaming services and Web videos, and opens the renowned value of TiVo's search to find and connect straight to your favourite content in a simple, easy to use fashion. TiVo has always been the best way to watch TV, but now, TiVo Online becomes the trusted source for doing just that, and it's free and easily accessible to anyone."

At launch, TiVo subscribers can stream live and recorded TV when on their home network, or launch titles from supported programmers and streaming sites. An update planned for later this year will allow anyone who registers for a free TiVo account to access the same viewing experience available now to TiVo subscribers.

"With TiVo Online, viewers who have yet to experience TiVo can utilise the powerful search and discovery features TiVo subscribers have appreciated for years," added Rogers. "Realising the compelling aspects of TiVo's service integrated right into their TV set and traditional viewing experience - along with the many other features of the TiVo service such viewing from any screen no matter where you are - we hope will inspire new viewers become TiVo subscribers."
