TiVo Music Choice
TiVo today added Music Choice content to its digital video recorders as an alternative to conventional TV. The service provides "several thousand" music videos as well as custom news and similar content through the DVR's TiVoCast feature: with a broadband Internet connection on the TiVo, users can search for and pull down videos on request rather than waiting for full downloads and frequently paying for these clips, the two companies say.
Music Choice starts on TiVo with just short of 1,000 vides and will gain the rest of the web catalog plus new content over the next several weeks. The service is free beyond the initial TiVo subscription fees and should work with any recent TiVo model, ranging from the standard Series 2 to the 3 and HD models.
