TiVo’s New DVRs Stream TV To Your iOS Device When You’re Not Home

This morning TiVo unveiled its newest lineup of DVRs, and rather than trying to kick your iOS device out of the living room, the new DVRs will stream TV straight to your iPad or iPhone, even if you’re not at home.

The new Roamio lineup of DVRs comes in three variants — TiVO Roamio ($200), TiVo Roamio Plus ($400) and TiVo Roamio Pro ($600) — but the Plus and Pro models are the only two that can stream TV to iOS devices.

The new boxes also come with a revamped UI along with access to apps such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, Spotify, Amazon, and YouTube.

TiVo says that the new boxes will be faster than previous generations thanks to the addition of HTML-5 support, and you can schedule recordings from your iPhone via a new iOS app that will launch soon. The new Roamio DVRs are available now on TiVO’s website and Amazon, or you can pick one up when they hit Best Buy stories in a few weeks.

    No, it will not stream to your iPad if you’re not at home.

    It will, however, download shows while you are at home, and you can watch them while you’re out and about.

    Yeah, it will. Check the feature list on TiVo’s website. The TiVo Stream (including with Premieres, you aren’t required to have one of the new Roamio models) says remote streaming (live TV and recordings, and downloading recordings) is coming soon. The 6-tuner Roamios basically have a TiVo Stream built in.
