The TiVo Premiere is primed for its third software update since launch, according to tweets from the VP of User experience (here and here). TiVo PR confirmed that a new release is on tap, and as with the prior two pushes, the focus is on enhancing Premiere “stability and performance.” I also asked where the Pandora app, announced at launch, is. And while my contact couldn’t provide a specific date, it sounds like the wait won’t be much longer.
Of course, with the cable-cos like Cox and Comcast now offering whole home DVR functionality and the introduction of Hulu Plus, more than ever TiVo needs to step up their game. It’s a sad day indeed when my cable company provides a more compelling DVR experience or a $99 box streams a wider array of Internet content from a significantly faster UI.
