Program your TiVo from your cell phone

Yet another RED announcement, this time Dec 3

I can’t watch TV without my TiVo, but the one thing I’m really lax about is actually programming the damn thing (Best Invention Ever: Season Pass).

In an effort to strip away all my excuses for not finding new shows and movies to watch, TiVo is introducing a mobile site at m.tivo.com (warning: link may not be live yet) that will let subscribers with Internet-connected DVRs schedule their TiVo’s remotely from their phones, just like they can today via their laptops. (The mobile site was created by Mobui).

Using a cell phone,TiVo junkies will be able to search for shows, record episodes, get season passes, and browse daily picks and the most popular shows.

So now I have one more annoying, anti-social thing to do on my mobile phone when I’m out in public. But when I get home, I’ll have plenty to watch.

Now, when are they going to start streaming the shows directly to my mobile phone? Oh wait, I must be thinking of something else.
