TiVo Introduces Premiere DVR

TiVo today introduced TiVo Premiere and TiVo Premiere XL boxes, two television set-top boxes that simplifies finding videos from Web outlets like Netflix and YouTube in addition to local program listings.

"It has never been this easy to get all your entertainment in one place, on the big screen, in HD, right at your fingertips. And the beauty of TiVo Premiere is that finding what to watch is just as fun as the watching the TV shows themselves. We accomplished it by using pictures and graphics to make the whole television guide experience come alive in a way that it never has before," said TiVo's President and CEO Tom Rogers. "TiVo Premiere is your new cable box, it's your movie box, it's your web box, and music box; it's the one box that can give you access to almost anything you want, whenever you want it. We've taken millions of pieces of content and organized it for you in a way that makes so much sense you'll wonder how you ever lived without it."

TiVo Premiere is a new cable box, movie box, web box, and music box; it's the one box that gives users access to everything they want to get on their television and all with one remote.

Premiere's search functionality offers users the ability to find programs from many sources -- whether it's a digital premium channel from cable, a funny outtake from YouTube or a movie from broadband sources such as Netflix, Amazon Video On Demand, or Blockbuster On Demand, plus options from the Web.

Every show, from every source, is organized by category or topic. With a full-screen menu that includes a display of movie posters & TV show logos for exploring, it's simple to stumble upon interesting things to watch or record. Plus, consumers have the option to browse by specific movie collections on their TV.

By clicking on a show or an actor users will be able to view entire entertainment resumes and cast lists.

Tivo created two-column and three-column layouts to reduce the number of screens, helping users to get to what they want more quickly.

Premiere is built on Adobe Flash software and on multi-core architecture that facilitates future development of third party provided applications.

Premiere also includes an on-screen disk space meter that shows how much room is left to record, a built in 30 second scan, and a new video window that lets users watch their favorite show while navigating the TiVo menus.

The TiVo Premiere box has up to 45 hours of HD storage space or up to 400 hours of standard definition programming capacity. And for those who want even more options the TiVo Premiere XL box holds up to 150 hours of high-definition or up to 1350 hours of standard definition programming.

A brand new relationship with Pandora means in the coming months, Premiere as well as TiVo Series3, HD DVR, and Series Tivo customers will be able to listen to their personalized Pandora radio stations on the best speakers in the house. A new relationship with FrameChannel brings web content directly to the TV offering users access to nearly 1,000 content widgets of personal and commercial content, ranging from Tweets, photos and status updates to news, weather, sports scores and stock quotes.

Coming in May, a new TiVo Wireless N adapter, that allows for faster downloads and faster streaming of content, at speeds that are especially helpful for multi-room viewing (MRV) transfers. Coming later this year, consumers will also have access to a slide-out QWERTY TiVo remote.
