How does TiVo help me find my favorite show or movie?
TiVo offers great ways to find your favorite shows and movies. TiVo’s universal search allows you to easily find a show or movie based on title, actor or keyword. TiVo searches across Live TV, Click! ON Demand and over-the-top platforms you may have access to via subscription, such as Netflix, HBO GO and Hulu, to find what you want. If you’re interested in a specific actor or topic, create a WishList® Search. TiVo constantly searches in the background and every time a movie or show airs that matches your criteria, it will be recorded.
How does TiVo provide suggestions and recommendations?
TiVo goes way beyond regular DVR services that only record shows. TiVo will ensure that you always have great TV shows and movies to watch through a combination of three recommendation features.
- What to Watch Now provides you with a choice of the best popular shows, movies, sports and kids’ entertainment that is available to watch right now. This will become your first destination when you get home, instead of going to channel guide.
- TiVo Suggestions gets to know what you like to watch based on our DVR recordings and your rating of shows. Then TiVo Suggestions will automatically record shows and movies that it thinks you will like so that they are there for you on our TiVo system. TiVo Suggestions will never replace shows you request or prevent them from being recorded and they are always the first programs deleted to make room for recordings you request.
- Browse & Discover- In the mood for a comedy, drama or action movie or TV show? Use TiVo’s Browse feature to see what is on in a specific category then select a program to record in the future or watch right now from live TV or on Demand (coming in December!)
Can I set parental controls on the TiVo Service?
