TiVo unveils BlackBerry app for show recording
Television viewers can now TiVo using their BlackBerry.
TiVo Inc., the maker of digital video recorders that can pause and rewind live programming, unveiled a free application Wednesday for the BlackBerry that lets subscribers set up recording of TV shows from the phones. Subscribers also can search for details about their favorite shows.
Live streaming of shows is not available.
The application works with TiVo DVR Series2 or the Series3 standalone DVR, not with a cable box that has a TiVo interface. The BlackBerry phone must have browsing capabilities and operating system version 4.2.0 or later.
TiVo unveiled its app for the iPhone last November.
