Great news for i.TV fans. The highly anticipated i.TV app update is now available at the iTunes App Store. This update (iTunes link) includes a redesign and intuitive UI experience with complete integration control of iTunes and TiVo with more remote features on the way.

The differentiator, though, is push notification services. Schedule a TV episode or movie to watch and you’ll be notified via Push either to your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Not bad for a free app.

From the developer:


The top TV and movie guide for the iPhone and iPod touch is now your remote control!

Customize your TV lineup, tag favorite shows and actors, request to be alerted when your favorite show airs or set your DVR to record the show you’ll otherwise miss. Best of all, i.TV’s new remote control capabilities allow you to control a growing number of devices so that watching that show is one tap away.
