Virgin Media TiVo service to employ iPad app

Remote control and remote record for new Virgin box

Boxes to start shipping this month. App next year.

The newly-confirmed Virgin Media TiVo on-demand service will make use of the TiVo iPad app.

The Virgin Media powered by TiVo service was officially launched today, delivering a catch-up TV service, with on-demand programming, a PRV box and a host of content delivered through web apps.

The TiVo iPad app, which is already a big hit with users of the service in the United States, will be useful as a remote control with full access to the EPG, and will offer remote recording while away from home.

The app, which is likely to be a fee download will be available in 2011, while the first TiVo powered Virgin Media boxes will be available from this month.

Check out what the TiVo app looks like in the official video below.
