TiVo Launches Tablet Application on Android, Looking Straight at You Google TV

TiVo has been around so long that it’s now a household name, but up until recently their Android game was lacking. They have a basic Android application, but if you’re like me and leave your tablet on the coffee tablet in front of the TV, you would rather see a tab-specific application to control your TiVo with. Today, the company has released just that, along with a few really cool features other than your basic guide and search options. 

  • My Shows – Check in on what you’ve got waiting in your own personal entertainment lineup in My Shows. Not only can you sort by date and title, you can monitor your available recording capacity with the handy disk space meter.
  • Season Pass Manager – Prioritize and edit your Season Pass recordings with intuitive drag-and-drop functionality in Season Pass Manager.
  • Remote – Take total control of your entertainment with your choice of two great TiVo remote control options: a full-scale replica of a classic TiVo remote or an intuitive, gesture-based remote control.

If you’re a TiVo user, it sounds like this app is going to be a must-have in your living room. The application is available for download in the Play Store now.

    Already been enjoying this capability for A year and a half +…. This is old news…. Thanks slingplayer for hooking me up!

    What do they test these apps with… None of my devices are able to access the Tivo Series 3 or the Tivo Premier using either the phone app or the tablet app for the GTab (OG, Droid 4 and the Gtab). And why take away the manual entry of an IP to leave us with that failed scan for devices. The non tivo remote app on the play store finds my devices. This is absolutely useless.

    They have a more robust Android Phone App out as well. Basically doubles as your remote and guide, much like the Tablet App.

    Crashes every time it tried to connect to my Premiere Elite 🙁
    Back to the phone app blown up on my 10.1″ screen.

    HP Touch pad not supported. Bummer.

  • How about google releases SageTV (which they purchased well over a year ago) as an open source OEM and End User DVR Server solution (with cablecard support) – and then a nice client for All android devices (Phones, Tablets, and GoogleTV)..

  • I remember when I used Tivo… in 2003

  • Krweby

    Will not connect to the new DirecTV Tivo box. Disapointed

  • Please Google give us better Google Tvs that are cheaper during the I/O

    • Love my Revue, just wish the browser was a bit faster

      • I agree the extremely slow browser is the main downfall of the revue for me.

        ………Or much less Buggy as well. I’m having to Factory reset at least once a month now. And as of recently it won’t allow me to set the Zip Code for my Cable STB Provider, so I have to use a Generic Input. Which means I can’t even control my Cable STB through the Revue lol

        I’m keeping an eye out for the Vizio Google TV. Specs look great and supposedly it’s only going to cost $99 from what I’ve been reading on the InTerWebS
