It’s time for a new historic soccer tournament of national level. It’s time to see great teams like GERMANY, ITALY and 2008 champions SPAIN! Now that the 2012 UEFA euro championship games are mid-week while time zones, work hours, and weekend plans tend to interfere with one’s ability to sit down and watch games, it’s time to get your TiVo DVR box ready to record the Euro 2012 games, and enjoy them after work. Can’t wait watching the games? In that case you can transfer the recordings to laptop or convert TiVo shows to an iPad/Android tablet and watch the excellent games at intervals and on the road.

The soccer recordings are saved as .tivo files after being transferred to computer hard drive and you can take TiVo shows anywhere you like. It requires Windows Media Player 11+ to play TiVo on PC.
