TiVo now rolling out Alexa support for its DVRs

TiVo is ready to launch integration with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant. Today the company announced that its series 4 (Premiere), 5 (Roamio), and 6 (Bolt) DVR boxes are receiving an update that will let customers instruct an Alexa-enabled device in their living room to perform core functions like changing channels, launching a streaming app, skipping commercials, and more through voice commands. Alexa can also control playback and pause, fast forward, rewind, or jump back eight seconds in the content you’re viewing. The rollout should be complete by June 1st.
