TiVo files have their glory days when people depended on television to stream their Netflix and Hulu. However, as time progresses, people are starting to prefer their phones rather than their television to stream. It makes sense, considering how phones are easier to carry and can be watched in any location. 

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about TiVo. TiVo is a DVR type, and it is impossible to carry it everywhere. And for this reason, people tend to seek methods to convert TiVo to MP4 so that the videos they own are more universal.  

Thankfully, converting TiVo to Mp4 is not as complicated as it sounds, although you do need the right software (online or offline) to do so. But don't worry, because this article will provide some of the best TiVo to MP4 converters for you.
