Download movies to your TiVo
So you have a high speed interent connection and you have TiVo, but you do NOT have the show you want to watch, what do you do? Easy goto amazon.com and head off to the amazon unbox and download what you want and kick back and watch it on not on your PC but on your big screen.
Amazon.com, the online retail giant, and TiVo, pioneer of the digital video recorder, are teaming up to help downloaded movies and TV shows make the leap to television screens.
In a deal expected to be announced Wednesday, Amazon and TiVo will allow TiVo owners who shop on Amazon’s digital download store, called Amazon Unbox, to send films and TV shows to their broadband-connected TiVo machines, and pause and fast-forward through them as they do a regular TV program.
There is no additional charge for the service, which is called Amazon Unbox on TiVo. The service will not work for satellite or cable TV subscribers whose set-top boxes run TiVo software.
Executives at Amazon and TiVo said bypassing the PC would open the digital download market to a more mainstream audience.
