Take the stress out of remembering to record each episode of your favorite TV series. Simply set up Season Pass recordings and your TiVo box will record your shows for you whenever they air.

Or, if you know what you like, but aren't sure when it's on, simply create a WishList search. Search by actor, director, keyword or category and every time a show matching your criteria airs, it's recorded.

Manage your recordings

TiVo Premiere allows you to manage your recordings from almost anywhere –through To-Do lists on your DVR, online at tivo.com and through the FREE TiVo App.

Manage your recordings online

Forget to schedule a recording? Don't panic. Just visit tivo.com from anywhere and search for shows, browse air times and channels, and schedule your desired recording online. It's like always having your TiVo box with you.

The Season Pass manager on tivo.com allows you to reorder your list of Season Pass requests, delete individual Season Pass requests, or transfer Season Pass requests between TiVo DVRs from any computer with an Internet connection (perfect for copying Season Pass requests from an old DVR to your new DVR). To use this feature both DVRs must be connected to the Internet, you need a broadband connection, and a tivo.com account.
