The (very) long-awaited Virgin Media TiVo app is finally set for release, according to a report on The Register.

Virgin first showed off the app in June 2011, promising a release that September, then in September 2012. That didn’t happen, although the company did release more details of the app in October.

Now The Register says the app is (almost) ready to go, with a source telling the company, “Load testing, fail-over testing – it’s all been done now”.

The app will allow subscribers to manage their TiVo recordings, discover TV shows and share viewing habits on social networks.
