Charter Communications cable TV customers in the Fort Worth market now have access to TiVo through Charter for the first time.
Charter is launching TiVo service across its markets through the first half of 2012, and is already making it avaialble in the Fort Worth area.
“Tivo Premiere,” as the package is called, blends TV channels with Charter on Demand interactive content, YouTube and more. Customers can begin a recording in one room, pause it, and pick it up in another room.
Free iPhone and iPad apps allow customers to search, browse, and share entertainment without interrupting what’s on TV, allow customers to use their devices as remote controls. An Android app is upcoming in 2012, Charter says.
“We’ve had DVRs for several years,” Kevin Allen, a Charter spokesman in Fort Worth, said. “We’ll still offer the other DVRs. This is an additional offer. It’s top of the line. It’s the best DVR product.
TiVo boxes cost $20 per month for the first box, and $10 per month for secondary boxes.
