Virgin Media has launched a new app for Android, TV Guide, allowing users to check TV listings and, for customers with a TiVo box, record programs remotely.
The TV Guide app makes its debut on the Android Market, though a version for iPhone and iPad peeps is “coming soon” to the App Store.
The app allows Virgin Media customers to see TV listings by package (M, L or XL) for the next seven days, and set single episodes or entire series to record.
“We think Virgin Media’s TiVo Service is the best way to watch TV and our new mobile app enhances that experience by ensuring you’ll never miss recording a programme whilst out and about,” says Virgin Media’s Alex Green, executive director of commercial TV & online.
“Our TiVo service already offers the most flexible and comprehensive recording options and features, which this new service complements.”
The TV Guide app is entirely free, but requires Android 2.1 (Eclair) or above. iDevices will need iOS 4.
