TiVo is rolling out some changes to a few of the menus today. Here is what they have to say:
"TiVo is making some changes to the “Browse TV & Movies” menu on Friday 10/3. First, we're adding a new Browse menu called “New & Notable” to the top of the “Browse TV & Movies” menu where all new mixes will begin their run on the box. There will never be more than one screen of mixes in this menu so there’s no danger of something new dropping below the fold. Since this will be the first thing consumers see when they load up the menu, we hope they will realize that TiVo is constantly updating these menus with new things for them to explore. As collections age out of new, they’ll be moved down into the regular “Collections” menu where the longer-term and evergreen content will continue to live.
Secondly, we're adding another new Browse menu called “Box Sets”. “Box Sets” makes it easy to record all of the content associated with your favorite franchises with just one click (just like the traditional DVD box sets that consumers are already accustomed to). It also gives us a way to display related content that’s not necessarily visible through regular search. For example, We’ve created a “Disney Animated Box Set” which displays all of the animated Disney movies. If you want to watch one right now, you can navigate from here to VOD or a 3rd party provider that it’s available from, or you could click the “Record this Collection” option so that if any of the animated Disney movies run on one of the consumers available channels, it’s automatically recorded. Same thing goes for other franchises like “Jack Ryan”, “Hunger Games”, “James Bond” or “Planet of the Apes”. This is something that Operators can highlight for new customers as a way to easily set up future recordings."
If you have any questions or trouble with the changes, please let us know!
