TiVo integrate YouTube

TiVo on Thursday announced that its Series3 and TiVo HD DVRs will soon support YouTube content, allowing users to browse and view videos on the Google-owned service. In the future, TiVo hopes to introduce a login interface, which would let users access their YouTube accounts, videos, channels, and playlists. Tivo expects to have the update delivered over "the next few weeks" for the aforementioned players.

"YouTube brings video where the audience is - across the Web and onto mobile devices, TVs and video games," said Hunter Walk, YouTube's director of product management. "The partnership with TiVo extends our ability to make YouTube accessible anywhere and lets people watch what they want, when they want it."

The upgrade gives the TiVo one of the few direct YouTube interfaces in a set top media box, with the most prominent alternative being Apple TV.
