It has been not long since TiVo released a limited app for Amazon’s Fire TV platform, however as it promised last year, the subsequent-era platform will attain third-celebration packing containers. This embrace not solely Fire TV (and Android) but also Roku and finally Apple TV.
We received a quick demo of the expertise on these packing containers at TiVo’s sales pace, the place it streamed transcoded video from a related Bolt DVR without difficulty. If everything goes following the plan, you must see the total app for Hearth TV in Q2, adopted an app for Roku, and later, maybe within the fall, the entry will prolong to the Apple TV. Moreover, it is not planning to charge for access to the apps, though TiVo house owners will solely be capable of streaming to two third-celebration units directly.
TiVo continues to be centered on its Mini as a correct extender for the lounge expertise into different rooms, and now it may supply an 801.11AC WiFi adapter to make that simpler. Since not everybody has coax cable or Ethernet working in every single place, an official wi-fi resolution will make issues simpler than ever. We witnessed it in motion inside the sign hell that may be a CES present flooring, so it could most likely deal with the crowded bandwidths of your neighborhood.
We additionally obtained a preview of the characteristic rolling out that makes use of information from Thuuz to increase recordings of sporting occasions that run long. Sadly it isn’t prepared to unravel the “Sunday night time CBS present” delay situation by shifting round subsequent recording windows. However, that provides us yet another factor to dream about.
