Netflix & Tivo to unite
And finally it has come time for all great things to join as one. Well, it’s a start anyway. PVRblog is reporting Netflix and TiVo to announce partnership, offer downloadable movies. The combined effort will allow Netflix subscribers to download their movies directly to Tivo. This has to be the best partnership since peanut butter hooked up with chocolate!
I’m guessing that the movies will somehow be queued in your Tivo according to your Netflix membership level (two at a time, three at a time, etc). The downloading will likely take place overnight or something. When our DirecTivos had Starz VOD, that’s how it was done – beamed through the satellite during “off” hours.
