It wasn’t that long ago that I expected TiVo to go the way of the Dodo.
It increasingly looked like its time had come and gone as cable companies added DVR functionality to their set top boxes and more and more of us started using our computers to watch and record tv content. Then TiVo started adding services such as Netflix streaming and in the process it got a new leash on life.
Now TiVo is adding yet another service to its growing list of new functionality. In addition to Amazon, Netflix, Walt Disney Studios, and Jaman support for Blockbuster On Demand will be live some time today. The service will be available on Series 2, 3, HD, and HD XL boxes and movie rental fees will range from $2.99 for “classic” or old films to $3.99 for new releases.
Between that and the ever-cool TiVo “blublup” sound TiVo is AWESOME!!
