Written by David Stellmack

Streaming starting in December

TiVo again has solidified its position as the premier DVR platform with news that it has reached an agreement to partner with Netflix to stream movies and TV episodes direct to TiVo Series 3 DVRs. The partnering arrangement had been rumored to be in the works for sometime, but the announcement today makes it official.

With the partnership, TiVo DVR users will be able to choose from over 12,000 movies and TV episodes that can be streamed directly to the owners of the TiVo Series 3 DVRs starting in early December. Users who subscribe to both TiVo and Netflix will be able to access streaming content from Netflix using their TiVo at no extra charge.

In addition to streaming Netflix content, users will be able to also control the content using pause, fast-forward, and rewind content during playback. Of course, users will be able to control the content of their Netflix Instant Queues with simple on screen interface using TiVo standardized interface technology.

Both TiVo and Netflix have both been making news lately with TiVo’s announcement of the development of a new TiVo-powered DirecTV DVR, and Netflix with the announcement of their streaming content being available to Xbox 360 owners with the release of the new interface upgrade in about three weeks. With the addition of TiVo, Netflix has been able to strengthen its position in digital movie and TV episode distribution, which is putting it ahead of other similar services.
