The free TiVo App for iOS is the ultimate entertainment app serving up control, discovery and a mobile place for viewing.

Ratings and Reviews
I agree completely with other reviewers, the old app was much better! Often have to re sign in, which never had to do before, very annoying. Remote is awful need the old one back. Can’t view all available channels on my mini as before. Overall very poor!
What happened to download function? I can find the stuff I have already downloaded, but can’t add any new downloads.
I didn’t think it was possible for this app to get any worse but they managed it. Now, when you click on a show it takes you to the list of shows then you can click on the show which takes you to the same list of shows ad nauseum. There doesn’t appear to even be an option to tell the TiVo to play to the television, only to stream to the iOS device.
TiVo, please just stop making cosmetic changes because you end up regressing all of your core functionality.
