TiVo has launched TiVo Online, a free new way for customers to find the programmes they want to watch from their cable lineup or a wide variety of streaming services.

TiVo Online eliminates the hassle of searching a variety of content providers and apps to identify what service offers your favorite show. At launch, TiVo subscribers can stream live and recorded TV programming when on their home network or launch titles with one click from supported programmers and streaming sites. An update planned for later this year will allow anyone who registers for a free TiVo account to enjoy the same highly personalised viewing experience available now to TiVo subscribers.

“The tools available today to find what viewers most want to watch across all sources of programmes are not comprehensive, not personalized, 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,” said Tom Rogers, TiVo’s president and CEO.

“TiVo Online is the service you can rely on to guide you right to what you want from cable and video on demand, streaming services and web videos and opens the renown value of TiVo’s search to find and connect straight to your favorite 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.”

“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.”
