TiVo shows off streaming to iPads

TiVo shows off streaming to iPads
We finally got the Android TiVo app that we had been hoping for, but it does require a Premiere account, doesn't work with certain devices, and it doesn't have any streaming option. Of course, just like the iPad got the TiVo app first, it looks like the iPad is getting that cool streaming option first as well. 

At CES, TiVo has been showing off a prototype box that allows users to stream recorded content to an iPad. The company says that the box should be able to stream content without troubles on any network fast enough to handle its multi-room DVR feature. Of course, in order to stream, it does look like you'll need the box, and right now there is no way to stream content from outside of your home. You have to be on the same network. 

Of course, this is still a prototype, so it's possible that this transcoder box will get built-in to future interations of TiVo hardware, and there may be options to stream your content while away from home sometime later.

TiVo streaming device seems very limited to a lot of devices and stream functions with its app. It really seems like a waste of time to me but DISH Networks Hopper has everything I'm looking for! It’s compatible with the sling adapter so there’s a bunch of mobile devices that this will works on and allows customers to stream thousands of Blockbuster movies to all four rooms. It comes with three client boxes called Joeys and allows full DVR functions in all four rooms. Customers can record 250 hours of HD content, plus features a TruVolume that prevents customers from dealing with annoying volume fluctuations. I was told by a co-worker from DISH that this DVR can record up to six shows at a time. I want really like to purchase this device once available.
