TiVo integrates with Facebook platform


TiVo, a provider of television services including digital
video recorders (DVRs), announced that it will update its iPhone and iPad apps
to include additional integration with Facebook to increase Social TV


Facebook’s newly announced Like and Watch integrations with
the enhanced Facebook APIs which will allow people who use the TiVo service to
further connect with family, friends, and subscribers around the entertainment
they love to offer an added layer of recommendations further enabling TiVo
lovers to enjoy brilliant TV.


TiVo users will be able to discover programs their
Facebook friends endorse with the Like feature, or view what shows their
friends are currently enjoying with the Watch feature and immediately schedule
a recording or watch live based on those recommendations. And because the TiVo
iPad and iPhone apps are linked to the TiVo DVR, TiVo users can feature the
program they’re watching to their friends and subscribers on Facebook with a
flick of their finger.


“When we launched the TiVo apps for iPhone and iPad
earlier this year, we did so with the goal of expanding the ways TiVo lovers
can interact with people, the web, and the entertainment they’re viewing while
they watch TV. With this improved Facebook integration, TiVo users can discover
things to watch from the new social guide, and can feature their entertainment
experiences and choices with their friends,” said Jim Denney, vice
president and general manager of product marketing for TiVo.


TiVo recently announced the launch
of its TiVo Premiere Elite set-top box, offering four digital tuners and
two-terabyte hard drive for unmatched recording capabilities, as well as THX
certification for optimal sound and video fidelity.


The TiVo Premiere Elite builds upon the Series4 TiVo Premiere
platform, the first and only set-top box to seamlessly combine the best of
broadband and broadcast entertainment through one stunning HD interface.
