The free TiVo App for iOS is the ultimate entertainment app serving up control, discovery and a mobile place for viewing. Watch live or recorded TV via your TiVo, find shows and schedule recordings and browse content via the guide, by genre or category, explore the cast and crew, and even see where the content is available whether it be through cable TV, Netflix, Hulu PlusTM, YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, through VOD in certain markets and more.
“What to Watch Now” combines real-time viewing data, recommendations and personal preferences to create a custom dashboard presenting the exact content you want most every time you sit down to watch TV. This feature allows you to categorize by content that is on TV now, starting within the next 30 minutes, or on later tonight. The TiVo app also allows you to watch content from your favorite Social Media feeds like Facebook and YouTube from the “What to Watch Now” screen. Categories include: Popular on TV, Sports on Now, Powered by Thuuz, Movies on TV, Kids, Favorite Channels, Viewer’s recorded TV, Shared by Friends, Popular on YouTube, and My YouTube Channels.
TiVo Roamio Plus and TiVo Roamio Pro users can seamlessly stream live or recorded programming to their iOS devices from anywhere there is a WiFi signal. Download recordings while at home or away via WiFi or cellular to watch when you have no connection. TiVo Stream users can stream live or recorded content to iOS devices within their home network and download shows to go.

We are bringing some improvements to your experience:
- We have added a new tutorial for What To Watch to help you make the best of its customization features and added a new filter to the What To Watch Movie feed to help you personalize which type of movies you'd like to watch.
- We have consolidated our search functionality to support searching across TV shows, Movies, Cast & Crew AND Channels now from any screen in the App.
- We have also made some other general improvements and bug fixes
In addition to these improvements, our updated App is ready for the upcoming Series 4, Series 5 DVR and TiVo Stream software update (20.4.6) coming in February. The new software release includes our new OnePass feature (DVR) and allow you to download content marked as premium by your service provider (DVR and/or Stream). Once your DVR or TiVo Stream updates to the new software release, the App will automatically support these features.
OnePass, which replaces Season Pass recordings, gathers every episode of a series and adds them right to your My Shows list. If an episode isn't available to record, OnePass shows you episodes from On Demand, Netflix, Amazon Prime and more.
Stay tuned to our blog (http://blog.tivo.com) for the formal announcement of its availability!
With your TiVo Roamio Plus, Pro or TiVo Stream updated to version 20.4.6, you will be able to download all of your favorite programs to the App, even when recorded on premium channels.
Due to copy-protection requirements, initiating such download will only be possible from home and the original recording will be deleted from your DVR.
