TiVo’s trying to make searching for different video content easier with its new Swivel Search feature that rolls out today. Developed for broadband-connected TiVos, Swivel Search is sort of a meta search that spiders the many different sources of TiVo content, like TiVoCast and Amazon Unbox, to find content that interests you. For example, saying you’re watching an episode of Seinfeld and want to find other similar programs. Bam! Swivel Search then finds The New Adventures of Old Cristine (because Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars in both). Simple as that.
