At f8, Facebook’s developer conference, TiVo announced it will update its iPhone and iPad apps to include additional integration with Facebook. Facebook’s newly announced Like and Watch integrations with the enhanced Facebook APIs will allow people who use the TiVo service to further connect with family, friends, and subscribers.

The improved Facebook integration creates a social guide for people to expand their typical entertainment choices by discovering new programs through the recommendations of their Facebook friends. TiVo users will be able to discover programs their Facebook friends endorse with the Like feature, or view what shows their friends are currently enjoying with the Watch feature and immediately schedule a recording or watch live shows based on those recommendations.

Because the TiVo iPad and iPhone apps are linked to the TiVo DVR, TiVo users can feature the program they’re watching to their friends and subscribers on Facebook with a flick of their finger. The improved integrations will launch on the TiVo app later this year.
