My DVR has about 30 hours of programming waiting to be watched. I guess I could always use a little more, right? TiVo seems to think so.
The company announced this week that they plan to expand the service that allows subscribers to download Web content to their set-tops. That means everything from YouTube to Web replays of “Desperate Housewives” can be viewed from the comfort of your couch.
Also expect plenty of new material; the company has added Reuters, Forbes, dLife, Plum TV, Nano and ICM to its TiVoCast service. They’ve also closed a deal with CBS to develop new programming exclusive to those users.
As another added bonus, you can swap goofy home movies and baby’s first birthday parties with other TiVo subscribers, via a partnership the company has made with One True Media.
- Service available by end of 2006
- Send home movies to other boxes
- New additions to TiVoCast service
