High-speed Internet connection

If you have DSL or a cable modem in your home, then you have a high-speed Internet connection. If you connect your TiVo® box to your home network, you can:

  • Instantly watch movies & TV shows from your Netflix unlimited account (Series3 boxes and later)
  • Download movies and shows from TiVo online partners like Amazon Instant Video
  • Watch unlimited web videos on YouTube™ (Series3 boxes and later)
  • Stream your favorite music from your Rhapsody account or from online radio services
  • And much more

But don't worry if you can’t connect your TiVo box to the Internet as long as you connect it to an existing phone line, TiVo will still find and record all of your favorite shows, keep your TV schedule up-to-date, and make sure your TiVo box has the latest updates.

It should be noted that if you have a Premiere, you need a high-speed Internet connection to download and utilize the high-definition user interface and the Premiere-specific features.

All you need to do is plug an Ethernet cable into the back of your TiVo box, or connect the TiVo wireless adapter if you have a wireless network in your home. Then you're ready to start exploring your options with TiVo online partners.
