Product Description

TiVo® DVR customers that now enjoy OnePass can get the full TiVo experience on their Android device with this completely redesigned FREE TiVo App.

Looking for an App supporting Season Pass and TiVo Series 3 DVRs?
Look for the TiVo Classic App in the Amazon App Store.

This App brings the best of the TiVo mobile features. It turns your Android phone or tablet into command central for your TiVo DVR*. It also also allows you to stream live or recorded shows to your mobile device**, so you can keep up with your favorite shows from anywhere.

This App makes it easier than ever to find great shows to watch on TV with TiVo's What To Watch feature, showcasing the best of TV available for you to tune to. Whether you are a Sports fan, Movie buff, TV addict or just looking for appropriate programs for your kids, What To Watch will show you what's on for you.
What to Watch also allows you quick access to your favorite shows available in your My Shows.

The App completes the experience with a full Guide showing you what's on and upcoming on your TV so you can plan what to watch next, or create OnePass and single recording anywhere you are.

My Shows now fully leverages TiVo's OnePass feature and helps you start watching your favorite shows in just a few taps.

Search not only finds your favorite TV Shows and Movies whether they're on TV, Netflix, Amazon or any other provider supported through your TiVo DVR, but also includes searching for cast & crew and channels.
Channel search will take you back to the guide from anywhere you are in the App and highlight the selected channel.

Already watching a show on TV? Find more about it and explore its episodes and cast & crew with the App's Info screen.

The App includes OnePass Manager and To Do List so you can manage your existing OnePasses and upcoming recordings anywhere you are.

Finally, the App adds a remote for you to control your DVR from your mobile device.

Having troubles finding or connecting to your TiVo DVR? Try one or more of these steps:
- Restart your network router by unplugging it, waiting 30 seconds, and plugging it back in
- Restart your TiVo DVR by following the instructions in the TiVo menus under Settings & Messages > Help > Restart or Reset System > Restart the TiVo Box
- Go to for more troubleshooting tips

*This App supports TiVo Series 4 (TiVo Premiere series) and Series 5 (TiVo Roamio series) DVRs.

**Requires Amazon Kindle device running Android 4.1 or above with a non-Intel or AMD chipset (sold separately). 4-tuner TiVo Roamio requires TiVo Stream accessory (sold separately). Out-of-home streaming supports streaming to only one of your Android (or iOS) devices at a time. Not all recorded content can be streamed to an Android mobile device (due to copy protection assigned by content provider and/or other technical limitations). Some recorded content can only be streamed to your Android mobile device while you are on the same network as your TiVo Stream or TiVo Roamio Plus/Pro DVR (as applicable). Out of-home streaming may not be available for all recorded content. Visit for additional details.

2.0 out of 5 stars Missing features January 20, 2012
Verified Purchase
The app seems to work ok, but it's missing some important features. It also has trouble seeing all of my TiVo's (I have two premieres, a Tivo HD, and a Series 2). There needs to be a 'manually add Tivo by IP' option instead of doing straight up network scans, especially since some of us have networks that don't propagate broadcast traffic across segments. If you click the 'Missing box?' button then go to the 'TiVo App for Android Troubleshooting' link, you get a 404 not found page.

Third, this app seems to be restricted to certain devices. My Kindle Fire seems to work ok, but my wife's Nook running CyanogenMod 7 is unable to download.

Fourth, C'mon, TiVo. Roll out features to your existing customers on Series 2 and HD models! It's not like we're not paying your subscription fees. It's ridiculous that I can only see the to-do list and season pass manager on my Premiere models.

Fifth, I should be able to stream recorded shows on my Kindle Fire from my TiVo box.

Sixth, every time I switch the Tivo I'm controlling, it asks me to log in again to the website. It should remember me.

Seventh, every time I go to the 'select a box' screen, it does another scan of my network to pick up TiVos. This is VERY annoying as I have to sit and wait for it to finish. Let me put in a static IP address for my Tivo boxes!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great app. with one major exception. January 18, 2012
By Gorio
Verified Purchase
The app. works great on my Kindle Fire, but worthless away from home network. I can already schedule recordings while away by accessing from my phone or Kindle, but it would be nice to see my To Do List, My Shows, and other features that work fine at home. Pointless to have an app. that duplicates what I can already do with the tivo remote right next to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good; 2 issues January 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
Pretty cool to be able to control my Tivo on my Kindle Fire. A couple issues: scrolling the TV listings sometimes hangs for some seconds while it's loading the rest of the listings -- I suspect this is due to the developer(s) trying to load the listings in the UI thread -- load the listings in a separate background thread instead and you should be able to resolve the scrolling unresponsiveness issue. Secondly, on my Kindle Fire, I have to scroll to get to the bottom half of the visual Tivo Remote -- the Kindle Fire's display is good enough that you can display the Tivo Remote fully without requiring the user to scroll the display -- there are Android SDK calls you can make to obtain/calculate the physical dimensions of the screen -- if the screen is bigger than a certain size, just display the full Tivo Remote.

5.0 out of 5 stars great app to control tivo March 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
This app is basically a fancy remote control. It could offer the ability to actually watch a recorded program with it. However, it is free and does offer a way to interact with the TiVo without having to sit in front of the TV.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs Improvements November 15, 2013
By Sabine
Verified Purchase
This would be an awesome app if you could actually watch shows from your dvr on your kindle Fire tablet. The only tablet that you can, is an Apple IOS. Tivo needs to work on this, because as it is now, the application is useless for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars the 90's called...they want their app back April 23, 2014
Verified Purchase
TiVo...what are you doing??? I paid several hundred dollars for your device, and then pay 16 bucks a month to give me a cleaner interface than Verizon's standard DVR provides. What do I get in return? An absolutely hideous app that is literally so unintuitive that it isn't even worth installing. The app is unresponsive, prohibitively slow, and terribly laid out. It's like the designers looked at the Android design guidelines, and then laughed as they threw it all out the window.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great program to set up your tivo remotely October 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
Easy to use. Lets you set up your Tivo when you are no where near your remote. It also acts as a Tivo remote from the same room.

The new version, which you need to see newer shows, doesn't have a fast forward button and using a bluetooth keyboard doesn't give it that capability either. Read more
