What is TiVo One Pass?
OnePass gathers every episode of a series and adds them all right to your My Shows list. If an episode isn't available to record, OnePass shows you episodes available to watch instantly from Live, On Demand, Netflix, and more.
OnePass looks not just at the scheduled programs on the channels you receive, but also the different streaming and Video On Demand services that are available on the TiVo. While it can display the availability of programs on all services, you can only access those you subscribe to.
OnePass can do more than just find shows for you; it also allows you to create intelligent recording schedules that ensure you never miss the shows you care about. OnePass can also create genre or keyword searches that find programs you might be interested in.
For example a OnePass created for “Sherlock Holmes” would find the award winning BBC drama (Benedict Cumberbatch), past classics, the movie starring Robert Downey Jr., as well as documentaries about the author or shows. Anything that includes “Sherlock Holmes” would find its way intelligently to your “My Shows” folder.
