i.TV 2.0 revamps iPhone universal remote app

updated 09:45 pm EDT, Mon August 17, 2009

i.TV 2.0 announced

i.TV has introduced v2.0 of its self-titled universal remote utility for the iPhone. The application is used to control a media center, while providing up-to-date local TV or movie listings and a catalog titles available for digital download and DVD rental. The software's framework is included, allowing third-party developers to create their own remote controls for use on the i.TV platform.

The latest version includes a new interface that features additional on-screen listings and can download TV shows and movies from iTunes. Version 2.0 also utilizes iPhone 3.0's push notification service to send users alerts when their favorite TV shows are set to air.

i.TV 2.0 is currently under review by Apple and will be available for free once the app is approved. TiVo is also planning to release a remote built from the i.TV framework.
