The company's Android app now supports streaming.
TiVo has finally launched a video streaming feature for its Android app. With this new update users can now stream live and recorded programming to their mobile devices.
The app offers support for Android 4.1 devices and above with non-Intel or AMD chipsets. Likewise, while most live and recorded content from over-the-air antenna broadcasts or cable TV will be streamable in and out of the home, certain programming may be restricted due to copy protection and other limitations. In addition to TV streaming, the updated app can also stream content from Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video. Other features include cast & crew info for shows, the ability to tap between mobile and TV playback, and the option to use your mobile device as a remote control for your TiVo DVR.
TiVo's new Android app is now available for download from the Google Play Store. An iOS version is also available. The TiVo Roamio is currently on sale for $170, the TiVo Roamio Plus is on sale for $335, and the TiVo Roamio Pro is on sale for $499.
