What is RCN’s Opera TV Store on TiVo®?

The Opera TV Store is an online storefront which specializes in apps that are optimized for TV.

What equipment do I need to access Opera TV Store on TiVo?

Opera TV Store is accessible through a compatible TiVo set-top box and remote (i.e. Quad, Premiere, Preview, Mini). An Internet connection and a television set are also needed.

What apps does the Opera TV Store offer?

The Opera TV Store offers apps for social networking, games, weather, video, music, news and more.

How do I access Opera TV Store on TiVo?

Using your remote, press the TiVo button at the top. From the TiVo Central menu select > Apps & Games > then Opera TV Store. Find new apps based on your interests and likes, all neatly organized on your TiVo.

What is an example of what can be done with the application?

With it, you can do things like update your Facebook page, Tweet and post on Instagram, or shop EBay…all from your TV rather than doing so from a tablet or smart phone. Or you can browse popular news headlines like you would do on the Internet.

What happens to information I share through these apps?

Opera TV Store apps may enable you to access or otherwise use third-party products and services, and apps may contain links to third-party websites. Such third parties have their own agreements and policies that govern their collection, use, and disclosure of information. You may choose to link your accounts on certain social networking services with your TiVo account or with your TiVo products (such as a TiVo DVR or mobile app). If you do so, you may be able to publish information to the linked social networking service. Please note that any information you choose to publish to or share with the linked social networking service will become subject to the privacy policy and other terms of the respective third party service. Access to some interactive features may be limited by a third party.

How many apps are available?

Currently there are close to 100 apps available with more expected in the months ahead. Availability and quantity of apps are not guaranteed and are subject to changes based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the popularity, ratings or content of available and new apps.

What is meant by cloud based apps?

This means that apps are never permanently stored on the TiVo, instead the TiVo accesses the apps from the Opera TV server.

Does the Opera TV Store allow customers to customize their experience?

Opera TV Store enables users a completely customized experience, along with a wide variety of local, national and global content and other applications. Customers can access tons of enabled apps designed for the TV screen. This combination will prove powerful for RCN TiVo customers as it enables them to access web content right on their existing TVs.

Is there a way to customize only a few favorite apps that I want to see?

Yes! Once you enter Opera TV Store, you’ll be able to select your favorite apps and place them in your own folder, called “My Apps”. Here is what you do. From the main screen, highlight and select an app you want to flag as a favorite (for example, Facebook). Once it opens, you’ll see an option to “Add To My Apps” at the top. Using your remote, toggle and highlight this option and press “Select” on your remote. Voila! That’s all you need to do.

Once I’m in the “My Apps” folder, how do I get back to the main screen?

Using your remote, toggle and highlight to the “+” icon on your TV screen and press “Select”.

Are there any other ways to view apps?

Yes. There are sub-categories at the top of the main screen that can help you narrow the apps you want to see based on topic – including New, Popular, All categories, Watch, Listen, Play, Socialize, Read, Use.

Is there a way to search for a specific theme, word or topic?

Yes. At the top of the menu highlight and choose “Select”.
