Accessibility Comments: 

The Tivo app is almost 100% accessible. VoiceOver works with all of the important things you want to do such as set programs to record, launch shows on your TV from the App, VoiceOver reads your entire recording history, to do list, and season pass manager. All of this works on Tivo Premiere boxes and newer. Additionally if you want to be able to stream content to your iPhone, you can get the Tivo Stream, and VoiceOver works with the stream as well.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments: 

The only part of the app that isn't accessible with VoiceOver is getting suggestions to shows that are currently playing, but you can browse and search shows.
