As it continues its progression towards advanced methods of interfacing with TV services, TiVo has introduced several additions to its consumer product family, including its first voice control remote.

tivo 31 july 20171The new TiVo BOLT VOX, Mini VOX allow TV viewers to use their voice to search for programmes across live TV, DVR, video-on-demand (VOD) and online streaming services. They also include access to the latest on-screen TiVo user experience, complete with built-in personalised recommendations and intelligent predictions.

The BOLT VOX is claimed to provide the most personalised and unified entertainment experience, combining the features of TiVo’s DVR with the most popular online streaming services, all controlled by a single voice-powered remote control. The new TiVo Mini VOX allows viewers to expand this great experience to other rooms in the house with up to 4K/Ultra HD picture quality, faster performance, and no additional service fees.

With the included TiVo VOX Remote, TiVo BOLT VOX viewers can use their voice to search across live TV, DVR recordings, VOD and various online streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, VUDU and Amazon Prime Video. Searches are also said to also deliver personalised entertainment recommendations based on viewing habits. It also lets users refine their voice searches in a natural way. Popular TiVo features have also been enhanced to work with voice control.

“Consumers today have access to more TV content than ever before, but finding it requires multiple devices, remotes and confusing user experiences,” remarked Ted Malone, TiVo vice president of consumer products and services. “The new TiVo BOLT VOX lets consumers easily find the shows they want to watch without having to know whether the programme is on live TV, DVR, video-on-demand or streaming from an online service – all by simply speaking into their remote.”
