Today, TiVo announced an update for its Android app that adds streaming support for live and recorded TV shows. This brings the Android application up to speed with its iOS counterpart, which received this functionality nearly a year ago. Compatible with most mobile gadgets running Jelly Bean or later, this software won’t work with Intel’s chips.

There’s also some programing limitations due to copy protection placed by content providers. In addition to over-the-air and recorded shows, the updated app accesses content from Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Instant Video, however most Android devices have been able to do this for years. Nevertheless, we’re sure these features will help you justify the $5,000 purchase that you plan on making next year.
