TiVo OnePass boosts binging

January 6, 2015

TiVo has introduced TiVo OnePass, an all-access solution available on TV in the home or via TiVo mobile apps, that tracks down every episode of a show a user wants to catch up on and displays all of the episodes in a ‘My Shows’ folder to serve as the ultimate multi-source binge-watching solution.

TiVo OnePass organises episodes of favourite shows by season, and if an episode or a season is not available as a recording, OnePass will include episodes from a user’s on-demand library or streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus.

“As we continue to see exponential growth in binge watching and the nearly ubiquitous presence of OTT video subscription services alongside traditional cable, TiVo continues to fulfil our mission to deliver the best entertainment experience for viewers,” said Jim Denney, Vice President of Product Marketing at TiVo. “With OnePass, we can shorten the time to get users to the content to which they subscribe much easier than needing to search individual services. OnePass is a significant step in our continued efforts to simplify and organise the exploding amount of great content available today – a solution we know becomes even more important as individual TV shows, movies and videos are spread throughout an increasing number of entertainment services.”

TiVo OnePass will roll out to TiVo Roamio and TiVo Mini devices in February. For mobile consumption, OnePass experience will accessible through the free TiVo app for iOS in February and Android devices in March.
