TiVo to launch Apple TV application later this year with live TV support and DVR access

At CES 2019 this week, TiVo displayed new applications for the Apple TV, Fire TV, and Roku. The new applications will permit existing TiVo clients to see live and recorded substance on various TVs utilizing their current equipment, instead of spending for extra TiVo Mini boxes.

Dave Zatz was first to recognize TiVo’s demonstration at CES this week. Zatz says TiVo plans to launch the applications amid Q2 and Q3 of this current year. The Fire TV application is said to come first, followed by Roku and eventually Apple TV.

Right now, TiVo offers its TiVo Mini as an approach to bring access to live and recorded TiVo substance to different TVs. The TiVo Mini VOX, which includes a voice-activated remote, right now retails for at $179.99 – making it an expensive method to extend TiVo all through your whole home.

The new application for Apple TV and different boxes will enable clients to get to their recorded and live substance at no extra expense. The organization says it doesn’t plan to charge clients an upfront expense for the application, nor is it planning an extra month to month cost.

The TiVo application for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku will permit existing TiVo subscribers to access live and recorded substance from anyplace. You will miss out on a few features, however, including SkipMode for blowing through commercials and 5.1 audio.

TiVo has been revising its strategy over the last several years to accommodate cord cutters. A year ago, it launched the Bolt OTA for use with an over-the-air antenna, instead of a traditional cable box. The Bolt OTA offers recording capacities just as access to other streaming services.
