TiVo teams up with EW.com
DVR maker and service provider TiVo announced on Wednesday it will partner up with Entertainment Weekly to provide viewers with content that is always available. Under the new agreement, Entertainment Weekly’s What to Watch recommendations will be automatically recorded on TiVo’s Internet-connected digital set-top boxes. Users will also be able to download Entertainment Weekly video content via TiVo, including Just a Minute, Ausiello TV and Idolatry, in addition to behind-the-scenes video from photo shoots.
The service, which TiVo stresses is the first of its kind, is due for a fall launch, though no information has yet been released as to how the service will be priced or what needs to be done in order to sign up for the content recommendation system.
