The starting point for the TiVo BOLT OTA experience is the TiVo Home screen. Get there by pressing the TiVo button on the top of your remote. From here, you can go to My Shows, where you’ll find all your recorded and streaming content, or browse for something new to watch. Even better, you can do it all using your voice! The Home screen is also where you can manage your OnePass™ requests, see what’s scheduled to record or customize your experience.
The TiVo VOX Remote™ takes the functionality of the classic TiVo remote and adds a super power: voice control. The VOX Remote lets you speak naturally and gives you the ability to narrow your search results as you go.
Here are some things you can do with voice:
Tune to a channel: “Watch CBS.”
Browse for something specific: Start with “Show me Chevy Chase movies.” When you see the results, narrow your search: “From the ‘80s. On Prime Video.”
Tell the remote to “Skip it” for SkipMode®-enabled shows and zip past commercial breaks instantly.1
Look for shows on popular apps: “Show me kids’ shows on Netflix.”
You can even ask for your favorite sports team: “When are the Warriors playing?”

The SkipMode® and QuickMode® features give you even more control over your entertainment experience.
TiVo BOLT OTA lets you skip entire commercial breaks in two ways. Using just your voice, you can say “Skip it” into your TiVo VOX Remote when a commercial break on a SkipMode-enabled show is about to start. Your BOLT OTA will zip past the entire break and resume playing at the beginning of the next scene in your recorded show. You can also press the SKIP button on your remote to perform the same function.
(You’ll know if SkipMode is available on a show a few minutes after it’s finished recording — just look for the SKIP icon next to the show title in My Shows.)
What channels and times are eligible for SkipMode?
QuickMode lets you watch recorded shows and sports 30% faster than normal speed — without the sound getting squirrely on you. It’s great for getting through the dull stuff without missing any of the action. When you’re watching a recorded show, turn QuickMode on by pressing PLAY then pressing SELECT when the TrickPlay™ bar appears.
TiVo BOLT OTA makes it easy to record or bookmark all the shows you love so you can watch them whenever you want. Simply set up a OnePass™ or a WishList® search.
Take the stress out of remembering to record each episode of your favorite TV series. Simply set up OnePass to gather every available episode of your favorite show from TV or popular streaming options such as Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO GO, on demand (if available) and more.2 You can even set up a OnePass for a sports team or league. Learn everything you need to know about OnePass here.
If you know what you like, but aren't sure when it's on, just create a WishList search. Search by actor, director, keyword or category and every time a show matching your criteria airs, it's recorded.
Schedule recordings and more with the TiVo app.
Using the free TiVo app for mobile devices, you can schedule and manage shows when you’re away from home. With the TiVo app, you can also watch live and recorded TV around the house or on-the-go.3

Have you ever been stuck watching a commercial break or slow-moving game, wondering what else is on but not wanting to channel surf? Problem solved. While you're watching live TV or a recorded show, QuickView lets you see what else is playing now or coming up without missing any of what you're watching.
With just a click of your remote control, QuickView panels appear over what you're watching. In each panel, use the UP/DOWN or LEFT/RIGHT buttons to move around. Press OK to switch to a channel, tuner, show that's airing or to set up a recording.
