New YouTube and Netflix Apps for TiVo Premiere Coming in Spring Update – Xfinity Rollout Begins

Posted Thu Apr 5, 2012 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

And according to VP Margaret Schmidt, we'll be seeing that update sometime this month.

In a recent Tweet, TiVo VP of User Experience Margaret Schmidt said that she's expecting to see the spring update to hit Premiere and Premiere Elite TiVo boxes by the end of April.

Included in the new update will be a new YouTube app created by the folks at Google and a Netflix app made by Netflix. You'll also find new parental controls available in HD menus – quite a bit less exciting than the streaming options.

If you're a Comcast Xfinity subscriber, you'll be happy to know that the Xfinity On Demand rollout is beginning, starting with San Francisco. DVRs in the area will be updated to support the service before its turned on later this month.
