iPad to Get TiVo Premier App

TiVo introduced its new TiVo Premier remote control app for the iPad on Monday. The app will let users control their TiVo Premier box from their iPad, schedule recordings, and send messages about what they are watching to Facebook and Twitter.

The app will support gesture-based controls, will include a program guide, additional information about the shows users are watching that can be viewed on the iPad while shows are playing, the ability to search for shows across all of the TiVo Premier services, and more.

The app will require a TiVo Premier box, and will be available as a free download at Apple’s iTunes-based App Store in the next few weeks.
