Exclusive TiVo Collection Delivers a ROYAL TV Experience of the Best in Wedding Coverage

Without TiVo Your TV Will Only Get a Commoner's Experience

ALVISO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2011) - As the world anxiously awaits the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton, TiVo has introduced an exclusive "Royal Wedding" Collection as part of its TiVo Collections feature. This collection delivers all of the content available surrounding the Royal Wedding available through a TiVo subscriber's cable lineup or on demand from Web partners such as Amazon Instant Video, Netflix or BLOCKBUSTER.

"TiVo users can tune into the 'Royal Wedding' Collection to record and enjoy the best of traditional TV and the Web throughout the entire week leading up to the ceremony. This unique feature allows for an ideal viewing experience -- one that goes beyond simply watching the ceremony live or recording it on a generic DVR as fans can easily search for everything from web videos about the event to recent wedding specials, all packaged seamlessly in TiVo's stunning user interface," said Tara Maitra, Senior Vice President, GM, Content and Media Sales of TiVo. "In short, fans don't have to keep jumping from TV to computer and back again trying to search for and watch the video they want; TiVo's solved that royal headache for them."

Here are some ideas for exploring the Royal Wedding Collection leading up to Friday's festivities:

  • Get the inside scoop on all the wedding details with NBC's "Inside the Royal Wedding" special airing April 27 with "Today" hosts Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira
  • Want a humorous take on all the wedding hoopla? Don't miss Bravo's pre-wedding special "Watch What Happens Live!: Royal Wedding Spectacular" with host Andy Cohen and Countess LuAnn De Lesseps of "Real Housewife" fame
  • Fear not if you missed Lifetime's "William & Kate" made-for-TV movie this past weekend. Invite your friends over before Friday to watch the movie in all its cheesy glory
  • If all the wedding news has made you nostalgic for 1981 and another Royal Wedding, you can relive those days by checking out "Charles & Di: Once Upon a Time"
  • Want an inside look into the Monarchy? Don't miss the Oscar-winning film, "The Queen" to see what some say really went down inside the Palace walls after Princess Diana's death
  • Catch day-of coverage with the trio from Morning Joe on MSNBC including Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist who are based in London all week

TiVo Premiere's Collections feature highlights the best that television and the web have to offer -- all grouped into fresh, fun and up-to-date categories. You can explore topical collections, event-driven collections, seasonal selections and groups of shows related to something new, interesting or popular.

Plus, if you know what you are looking for, TiVo Premiere can find your title in a single search that scans across your DVR recordings, cable lineup, or video on demand titles available to rent or buy from the Web.
