They aren't even second.
I want to record a Duke game, I pull up my Google Fiber TV app, and type in Duke, and tap on Duke University from the options. It tells me there's two games coming up - football and soccer. I select Football, and it informs me they are playing Georgia Tech (not as some human written summary mind you, but because it knows who is playing). I can hit record here. I can also tap a button and get a list of other upcoming college football games, or get the option to record all upcoming Georgia Tech games. When it recognizes you are setting it to record a live event, it asks if you want to extend the recording time for a certain period beyond the scheduled end, because they do sometimes run long.
Also fun - you can type in a movie name and set it to record, even if it's nowhere on the schedule. It will just keep it in memory and record it whenever it does eventually come on. You can do this with actors and directors too, and it will just watch for whatever they are in that comes up. I think maybe TiVO does this too? But, I've never had it, so...
And one thing that Google Fiber is doing that both TiVO and Apple aren't, is providing the connection to the content.
