TiVo Adds Online Season Pass Scheduling

Good to see TiVo is still out there listening to consumers and beefing up their services. An online "Season Pass" manager has been a highly requested addition to TiVo's services, and considering that it's one of the few standalone DVR options out there that require a monthly fee, consumers have been eager to push the company to comply with their demands.


Today, TiVo has launched an online Season Pass manager, which gives consumers the ability to manage and transfer their Season Pass recordings online. This new feature joins TiVo's online scheduling functionality on tivo.com for browsers and m.tivo.com for mobile devices, both of which allow customers to schedule recordings from anywhere they have access to the Internet. For years, TiVo has allowed customers to remotely schedule recordings and set up Season Passes from tivo.com. With this updated tool TiVo subscribers can now also reprioritize or delete Season Passes on tivo.com, so you have even less work to do when you get home.

To manage Season Pass recordings online the TiVo box must be broadband connected and connected to the TiVo service. The Season Pass manager is available to all broadband-connected boxes including TiVo Premiere, Series3, HD and Series2 DVRs, with more information available at www.tivo.com/spm.

My daughter uses two of these things and loves them. So far, my ROKU is working out for me.

I'm loving the organization so far. I can't tell you how annoying it is to unsubscribe to multiple season passes with just the remote.
