About web videos

What are web videos?

With a broadband-connected TiVo device, you can download videos from a variety of Internet sources directly to your TV. They will appear in My Shows just like regular television recordings.

What do I need in order to get web videos?

Web videos are available to all TiVo broadband-connected customers with a TiVo Series2, TiVo HD, or TiVo Series3, HD XL, or Premiere box.

How do I connect my TiVo Premiere to the Internet?

You will need to connect an Ethernet cable or a TiVo wireless adapter to your TiVo device, and then configure your DVR to work with your home network.
