TiVo like other electronic companies at CES 2015 made an exciting announcement: TiVo OnePass. This doesn’t involve any hardware, but is rather a new feature to be pushed to certain TiVo DVRs targeting binge-watchers.
OnePass will be arriving some time next month to applicable users. It is aimed to those who watch serveral episodes back-to-back and don’t like to search for that one wayward episode in between.
TiVo users can use the TiVo OnePass to locate all episodes of the show they wish to watch in the My Shows folder, arranged neatly season-wise.
If the episode is not recorded by the user, TiVo will enable services of other streaming networks to fill in the episode gaps. These include Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video. Users have the option to follow through with recordings only or to stick to streaming.
They will simply expand your Internet TV Streaming experience within their own service.
OnePass features includes:
- - Select recording or streaming of your content, you may save the content on your local disk, or you can stream your whole experience, or both.
- - Across all your TiVO platforms and apps you can include all seasons for a TV show, start with only one season, or only include new unwatched episodes.
- - Organising all your streaming and recorded video under a “My Shows” section, in directories after the name of the show.
- - Remembering your last watched episode and bookmarking the next so you don’t have to remember where you are when you are breaking from your binge watching.
TiVo plans to push its plans out in February to its Roamio and Mini users. Those using the TiVo apps on their smartphones and tablets will also be able to utilize the feature. iOS users will get it first in February, followed by Android users receiving the feature in March.
