AOL On app coming to TiVo Premiere

The AOL On Network today announced the launch of version 2.0 of its connected TV app. Formerly known as AOL HD, The AOL On app will feature ad-serving capabilities at launch, and will boast a wide selection of rich, high-definition video content drawn from The AOL On library of more than 380,000 short-form videos. Already available on seven of the leading connected TV platforms, the update will be made available to three of these platforms: Samsung Smart TVs, Roku and Sony. Currently in beta, TiVo joins the lineup of supported platforms. Subscribers will receive access to the AOL On app in the coming weeks on TiVo Premiere DVRs.

From the Reuters link

The upgraded AOL On app boasts a newly redesigned, cutting-edge user interface. In addition to AOL original content from properties like Moviefone, Engadget and HuffPost Entertainment, the app will feature high-definition videos from the AOL On Network’s premium content partners like Reuters, AP, BBC, Newsy, Entertainment Tonight, Sugar, E!, Splash News, CNET and Gourmet TV. New content will be added on a daily basis.

Meh.

They take away filters in the guide and start adding add driven apps that is more than likely going to add to the lagg.

Just what we would need, another streaming service with forced ads. Is this the future of DVR's?

Actually. TiVo just provided AOL the SDK/API. I suspect that TiVo put very little engineering effort into support the AOL app. I guess Sony, Samsung, Roku, Google TV, and Boxee wasted their time as well...

People are begging Tivo for an Amazon Prime app and so we're going to get AOL! What's next Comp-U-Serve? Maybe a dial-up BBS? Hello, testing 1-2-3. Is anybody home? Hope it's free, 'cause there's no way in H that I'd pay for AOL. I'd rather listen to 24/7 Super Beta Prostate ads!!!!

I think some people just like to bit**. TiVo needs to have more streaming content and channels like this are part of the solution.

For all those that think AOL HD is worthless - of course that is a personal preference thing but maybe you should wait until you see what AOL HD has before being so certain. After all Engadget, Huffington Post, Moviephone, TechCrunch etc. are all AOL properties and are contributers to AOL HD.

I really don't see the downside to this and I am hoping it is the beginning of TiVo being able to offer more channels like other streaming/connected/smart TV devices.

Agree completely, whatever your opinion of the quality of the content that the AOL app will offer, the fact that a major media company decided it was worth the time and expense to support the TiVo Premiere is a good thing.

I have no clue why people continue to point to TiVo as if they write these apps themselves. Do people complain to Apple or Google when they want an app written for that platform?

Even if I have no interest in this app, which I don't think I will- I cannot stand hulu plus, the fact that any parties are writing apps for Tivo is great news.

Would be nice to have the API open so we could write our own aps but until then we have to count on TIVO to write or control app development.

I'm just hoping that the UX is higher than it is in the Netflix and YouTube apps.

I'm guessing the release of the SDK recently will open up the possibility of more apps? HBOGO?

If HBOGO wanted to write one, I think TiVo would have already given them the SDK.

Looks like this content is integrated into TiVo Search, which is nice.

Need to spend more time browsing the UI, but it doesn't appear to be a speed demon.

Oh, and it rebooted my TiVo 10 seconds into starting an Engadget Show launched via "Watch Now via... AOL On".

More content is always welcome, though.

As long as my TiVo doesn't start saying "You've got mail!" I don't care what apps they add.

Would be nice if they fixed the Netflix app though.

This (whatever the fack it is) just showed up on both of my Premieres last night.

Is there no choice? I don't want to have any kind of relationship with AOL so I was trying to figure out how to delete it but was unsuccessful. Is there a way to delete it off my 'my shows' list? TIA

Last night I looked everywhere but there. <---- (at self)

Thank You so much!

Noticed this on my Premiere today and checked it out briefly. I don't see the point and don't find the UI to be "cutting edge"

Not sure how much I will actually use the AOL app, but it seems to work better than the current Netflix app.
