Action Engine Corporation has developed a mobile application selected by TiVo to power the TiVo Mobile entertainment service.
The TiVo Mobile service is delivered through a new downloadable application that lets TiVo service subscribers schedule recordings for their TiVo Series2 DVRs directly from select mobile handsets.
The application, which was built using Action Engine’s Mobile Application Platform, extends TiVo’s capabilities by allowing customers to identify and then schedule the recording of television programs directly from their wireless phone. Customers can use their wireless phones as a "virtual remote control" to search program listings and schedule the programs to be recorded on their TiVo box at home.
Action Engine is developing the TiVo Mobile application as part of its suite of Signature Solutions for 2006 aimed at coupling ‘big brand’ services with a best-in-class mobile user experience.
