The free TiVo App for iOS is the ultimate entertainment app serving up control, discovery and a mobile place for viewing. Watch live or recorded TV via your TiVo, find shows and schedule recordings and browse content via the guide, by genre or category, explore the cast and crew, and even see where the content is available whether it be through cable TV, Netflix, Hulu PlusTM, YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, through VOD in certain markets and more.
“What to Watch Now” combines real-time viewing data, recommendations and personal preferences to create a custom dashboard presenting the exact content you want most every time you sit down to watch TV. This feature allows you to categorize by content that is on TV now, starting within the next 30 minutes, or on later tonight. The TiVo app also allows you to watch content from your favorite Social Media feeds like Facebook and YouTube from the “What to Watch Now” screen. Categories include: Popular on TV, Sports on Now, Powered by Thuuz, Movies on TV, Kids, Favorite Channels, Viewer’s recorded TV, Shared by Friends, Popular on YouTube, and My YouTube Channels.

What's New in Version 3.6.1
Fixes for iOS9 support and general bug fixes
Had gotten so buggy
Won't finish downloading without several restarts and other things. I used to download tons of shows the night before a business trip and have nice content for long flights but now I get the "failed to download" message and I need to restart it several times etc. worse than terrible and I am hoping when I go to iOS 9 that maybe this will stop but the app is worthless to me in its present state. Please fix it - I love to use it when it works
Closed captioning bug
It's always something!
Now, I often can't get CC to work. No matter my setting, CC stay off. When it does come on (don't know why), then I can't turn it off! Quitting the playback and resuming does not help. Quitting the app and relaunching does not help.
At least the streaming is better (fewer errors), but still not perfect unless the LAN connection is perfect.
Fix the closed caption bug
How hard is it. You updated the app and now closed caption is on by default. You see people complaining about it. Go fix it. This is a 2 hour fix and then submit it for approval in the App Store. And fire whoever tested the app. They just signed off on it without even opening up the app or they would have seen every show plays with closed caption on. Get it done before I cancel my service.
