TiVo Software Update Bringing YouTube To The Living Room
Tired of the typical TiVo offerings? Good news, the choice of content available to broadband-connected TiVo Series3 and TiVo HD DVR owners just hit the moon as the company has just announced with YouTube, bringing hundreds of millions of user-generated videos (some good, some bad) directly to your TV screen.
TiVo users will be able to browse and play YouTube vids using the TiVo interface while seated comfortably on the couch. And very soon YouTube users will also be able to logon to their accounts using the TiVo granting access to their personal favorites and playlists. All of this without ever touching a computer.
Whether or not this is a better deal for TiVo or YouTube is hard to tell. Is this really the type of content that TiVo users want? If anything, this is another huge deal for YouTube, enabling their giant video platform out of the interweb and into the real world.
Look for a software update in the next few weeks that will enable this new feature.
