TiVo Central, your hub for entertainment.

Your TiVo BOLT experience starts at TiVo Central. Get there by pressing the "TiVo" button at the top of your remote. Here you can access and manage all your recordings and OnePass settings. You can also enjoy available on-demand content from your cable provider, or stream web entertainment from Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, HBO GO and more2. So go ahead and explore! You can always get back to live TV by pressing the "Live TV" button.

Find what you want to watch.

TiVo BOLT makes it easy to find the shows you want to watch, regardless if it's on cable, Netflix, Amazon Video or our other content providers.

Guide

Channel-surfing has never been easier. TiVo provides a 14-day programming guide that gives you the shows and when they air for all the channels you get. To see the guide, press "Guide" on the remote or use the TiVo app.

OneSearch

Find exactly what you want to watch, whether it's on TV or the web, in one simple search. Just search for the show or actor you want, and we'll find it.

To use TiVo's OneSearch feature, go to TiVo Central > Find TV, Movies > Videos or use the TiVo app.

Discovery Bar

The Discovery Bar appears at the top of the screen when you are in TiVo Central. It will recommend shows based on what you like and have previously recorded.

What to Watch Now

Here's where you go to see what's on TV right now. No more surfing channels—quickly review which shows, movies or sporting events are now playing.

To access What to Watch Now, go to TiVo Central > What to Watch Now, or use the TiVo app.

TiVo Suggestions

TiVo BOLT finds and records shows that we think you'll like. The more you rate shows using the "Thumbs Up" and "Thumbs Down" buttons on your remote, the more personalized your TiVo Suggestions will be. You can find them in your My Shows folder. But don’t worry, TiVo Suggestions don't take up any hard drive space and can be turned off by going to TiVo Central > Settings.
