TiVo Unveils $50 Premium ‘Glo’ Remote

TiVo.com has begun selling the Series3 remote as a $49.99 accessory. Not only does the remote control the S3, most Series2 units are supported as well. One slight difference over the bundled S3 unit: instead of a silver perimeter, this sports a chrome rim.

TiVo’s remote control designer points out enhancements versus the standard Series2 model:

  • Fully backlit keys.
  • Learning capability.
  • Metal domed keys provide crisp, tactile feedback.
  • Improved ergonomics and feel.
  • Bigger navigation pad with the Select key in the center.
  • Glossy, high-end look.

  • I've been thinking about it and have decided Glo is a pretty cheesy name for a sexy high end remote like this. I suggest renaming it TiVo Pro Remote or something like that. It would be nice if the name conveyed the backlight feature, but Glo doesn't work for me.

  • The name makes me think of "Mop and Glo" floor wax.

    Though I'm already drowning in remotes. I certainly don't need another.
