TiVo, the creator of and a leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVRs), and Verizon Wireless, owner of one of the nation’s most reliable wireless network, today announced the availability of TiVo Mobile scheduling, a downloadable application available only through Verizon Wireless. TiVo Mobile scheduling allows subscribers to purchase the mobile service through select Verizon Wireless handsets and schedule recordings on their TiVo Series2 or Series3 TiVo boxes.

TiVo and Verizon Wireless bring consumers the convenience of scheduling television recordings while away from the living room. Whether you are away from home or discussing TV at the water cooler, all that is needed is a select Verizon Wireless Get It Now-enabled handset to schedule recordings on your TiVo box.

“TiVo continues to transform and revolutionize the way people control and watch television,” said Jim Denney, vice president of product marketing at TiVo. “TiVo Mobile scheduling gives Verizon Wireless customers unprecedented control of their television experience and provides that control wherever they are.”

Ryan Hughes, vice president of digital media for Verizon noted, “TiVo built its reputation by making television relevant to its customers, while Verizon Wireless built and maintains the nation’s most reliable wireless network. This innovative service adds a new layer of relevance and immediacy, so even when they're thousands of miles away from their televisions, TiVo subscribers can program their favorite shows.”

TiVo Mobile scheduling uses the award-winning TiVo interface to give subscribers the ability to easily search for and browse through listings to find shows that they want to record. Subscribers to the TiVo Mobile scheduling service will also have access to premium entertainment content that is updated daily, including a customizable channel lineup, the most popular and most recorded shows and a current list of recommendations from TiVo.

TiVo Mobile scheduling is available for $1.99 monthly access on select Get It Now-enabled phones, including the Samsung SCH-a950, Chocolate by LG and LG VX8300.

TiVo selected Seattle-based Action Engine Corporation (www.actionengine.com), a leading mobile software provider, to develop the TiVo Mobile scheduling service.
