What is multi-room streaming?
Watch recorded shows on your other TiVo® boxes
Don't keep your recorded shows locked up. If you've got more than one TiVo box, you can stream a recorded show from one TiVo box to another in a different room. Here's how it works.
Share shows between boxes
Picture this. The kids are happily watching cartoons on your TiVo box downstairs. You’re dying to watch the latest episode of your favourite drama that you recorded earlier, but you don’t want to disturb them. What do you do? Simple. Just stream the show you recorded downstairs to your box upstairs, and leave them to it.
Better yet, imagine this. You want to hit the sack, but you don't want to miss the finale of the movie you started watching on the sofa. With TiVo, that's no problem either. Just pause the film, then pick up where you left off once you're tucked up in bed. So you never miss that exciting twist, epic last battle or the guy finally getting the girl. Brilliant.
Multi-room streaming works with up to six TiVo boxes and you can stream the same show (or different shows, if you like) on two different boxes at the same time. What's more, you can stream to your heart's content upstairs without interrupting anything on the box you're streaming from downstairs. So the whole family's happy. Oh, and it works with standard and high definition shows too*.
It's just one more reason why we think Virgin Media: TiVo® Service is the best way to watch TV, ever.
