You’ll Soon Be Able to Watch Your TiVo on Apple TV, Roku, and Fire TV
In a report in ZatzNotFunny, TiVo plans to launch Apps for Roku, Fire TV, and Apple streaming devices by Q3 of this year. It is expected that Fire TV will launch first, followed by Roku, then Apple TV.
The apps will allow you to watch live television as well as DVR-ed content on your existing streaming device, instead of the company’s own TiVo Mini. It is not expected that the service will cost a monthly service fee, so it will be a free to TiVo subscribers.
The report didn’t share which TiVo devices would be supported, but their most recent TiVo Bolt OTA seems like a natural fit. The device can record from an OTA antenna similar to Amazon’s Fire TV Recast. While the [Fire TV Recast][fire-tv-recast] will stream live and recorded content to other devices, it’s currently limited to only Fire TV devices and mobile devices.
