TiVo Stream transcoder review: TiVo is bringing streaming to mobile devices, starting with iOS

TiVo Stream transcoder review

Back when we initially reviewed the TiVo Premiere for iPad app, there were locals who complained about not being able to stream material. It seems, though, that TiVo was one step ahead of us: back at CES the business annoyed a transcoder– a tool that would certainly later on be recognized as the Stream. As its name suggests, this little box streams recordings from your TiVo Premiere to as numerous as 4 iOS devices with the help of your local network. You can also use it to move shows for on-the-go viewing. So is it worth the additional $ 129? Let’s learn.

TiVo Stream DVR-to-iOS transcoder box turns up for $ 129 pre-orders early

TiVo Stream DVRtoiOS transcoder box pops up for $  129 preorders early, ships September 5th

We haven’t heard a ton about TiVo’s Stream transcoder since it was formally unveiled in May, but today emails went out to champions of a Facebook contest informing them they can pre-order one for $ 129 (plus shipping) and obtain it on September 5th. In case you have actually forgotten just what its capacities are, the notice revealed above from Zatz Not Funny also consists of a summary of its abilities which consist of streaming shows to up to three different mobile devices (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch) in the home at as soon as, streaming a show to your mobile as it’s tape-recorded, or wirelessly moving shows to the gadget to view them on the move, TiVoToGo-style. Those interested will of course need a Premiere series DVR that’s hard-wired to a router, however with that it’s merely a one time fee to quickly cut the tether on TV material. Interestingly, a few TiVo Community posters state being able to preorder from the noted number without being in the contest, so if you’re already meaning to jump merely pick up the phone and give it a shot.

TiVo releases Q4 results, announces transcoder and IP set-top box on the way

Today TiVo announced its earnings for Q4 2011 and the full year, however the most interesting note was word of a few new boxes on the way. From the sound of things, the company will deliver a four stream transcoder similar to the one we saw demonstrated at CES (pictured above) capable of dishing out video to multiple devices (phones, tablets, etc.) within the home simultaneously. Also on the way is an IP set-top box coming to retail that sounds very much like the TiVo Preview multiroom extender, however it could include access to internet video services as well. As mentioned on Tech of the Hub, CEO Tom Rogers’ statements indicate the transcoder will enable both live streaming and DirecTV Nomad-style “high speed” sideloading of recorded content for offline viewing. More concrete are its positive numbers from the partnership with Virgin Media in the UK, and progress on a plan for Pace to develop TiVo-compatible set-top boxes for cable operators here and abroad. The Comcast partnership is also apparently progressing, with VOD access in beta trials and preparing to launch “soon” in the San Francisco area.
