∞ TiVo releases iPad app, but only for Premiere boxes

TiVo announced on its blog that its TiVo Premiere app is now available from the App Store. The software lets you control your TiVo digital video recorder (DVR) using an iPad, but only works with TiVo’s new Premiere devices, not older TiVo DVRs.

The software lets you schedule recordings; set up Season Passes; browse recorded shows; search for programs and actors – not just on broadcast television but also on Netflix and Amazon Video On Demand; and post information about what you’re watching to Facebook and Twitter.

The app is free, but bear in mind it only works with TiVo’s newer Premiere or Premiere XL boxes. You’ll also need an active paid subscription to the TiVo service.
