TiVo and iPod: A Match Made in Heaven

TiVo says it will test a feature in that lets subscribers transfer their favorite TV shows to their iPods and PSP portable devices.

... YES!...

The new feature will only be available to "stand-alone" TiVo subscribers, and the company is doing it without an official relationship with Apple. DirecTiVo users are shit outta luck.

... this is a great idea... although it could eventually cut into sales of shows from the iTunes store... but the thought of having my TiVoed shows on my iPod is making my eyes well up with tears of joy... and how great would it be if those awesome TiVo sounds transferred too... man, it would piss off the other passengers on the train...

1 other geekspeak:

  • Will Apple create a video version of it "Fairplay" technology, which prohibits music purchased from Napster and other non-iTunes services on the iPod? You know that producers of porn are already in production for adult flicks for the iPod and PSP.

    My guess is with the launch of AOL's In2TV (something I'm surprised hasn't yet been mentioned on TV Geek Speak), we will see a lot of downloadable video content with commercials, making the $1.99 business model obsolete. You can't put commercials on songs, but for TV shows, its a certainly viable business model.
