TiVo owners can control their devices via an iOS app on the iPhone and iPad, but — for the moment — can only watch shows on their television.
But that’s all going to change in a few months. According to a report from ZDNet, TiVo is launching an external decoder box that would plug into the TiVo Premiere set-top box and would deliver content to an iPhone or iPad.
The unique part is that the company claims that the TiVo Stream is the first product to enable streaming (or downloading) shows simultaneously to multiple devices without interrupting what’s playing on the television. The Verge tested a prototype in January and wrote that it “streamed a show from the TiVo across the room without any hiccups.”
TiVo says they will release the TiVo Stream box “in the coming months”, but didn’t share any details about pricing.
