TiVo Adds Sharing of Internet Video

TiVo considering breaking out of its digital video recorder shell and wants to give its customers the ability to connect their television to the Internet. Earlier this month, TiVo partnered with Amazons Unbox service, allowing subscribers access to movie downloads and this week, TiVo announced a new way for subscribers to share personal videos using One True Medias online video post-production service. The arrangement allows One True Media users to create a personal TiVo channel that will show their uploaded videos. They can then invite TiVo owners to subscribe to that channel, at no charge, using TiVos Season Pass feature. One True Medias service isnt free, however. Subscriptions start at $4 per month or $40 per year. TiVo is currently evaluating on whether or not integrate advertising into the service but it is unclear whether ad revenue would be used to defray the cost of One True Medias service or to compensate content creators wishing to share their own commercial content.
