Did you even know that you can stream and record your favorite shows from the TiVo app? You can even take them with you for when you’re on the go. Here’s how to get started.
1. Update your phone’s OS
2. Download the TiVo app
3. Launch the TiVo app.
4. Sign in to the app using your TiVo.com username and password.
5. If prompted, select the primary TiVo box to use with the app. (You will only be prompted if you have more than one compatible box on your home network.) You can always switch to a different TiVo box later.
6. You will be prompted to set up in-home and out-of-home streaming. If you are not prompted automatically, complete setup and then go to Settings. Choose Start Setup in the Streaming & Downloading section.
Want to stream shows? You can watch live TV, recorded shows, and shows available from streaming providers (like Netflix) wherever you are. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Find a show to watch in the Guide, What to Watch, or My Shows.
2. Tap the show title.
3. In the preview window at the top of the screen, tap the PLAY icon; or, tap beneath the PLAY icon to display additional streaming options. For live shows, choose Record & Watch (your TiVo box will start recording the show and streaming it to your mobile device immediately).
Don’t have internet access? You can download shows to your device and watch them later.
1. Tap My Shows, and find a show that has recordings. The number of recordings appears to the left of the show title. If no number appears, only streaming shows are available. (Streaming shows can’t be downloaded.)
2. Tap the title of the show to go to the Series page. To limit the list to only recordings, select Recordings from the drop-down menu.
3. Tap the episode title, then tap the download icon.
4. Choose a download quality, then tap Download with These Options. Note that best quality downloads will take up more space on your device than Medium or Standard quality downloads.
5. Tap My Shows > Downloads to watch your downloaded shows.
Note: Downloaded shows are available to watch only from the TiVo app. If you uninstall the TiVo app, the downloads will be deleted from your iPad/iPhone.
With the TiVo app you can always have your favorite shows in your pocket and never need to worry about missing your favorite shows anymore.
