BBerry TiVo Support

Research in Motion and TiVo today announced a plan to add control hooks for TiVo's DVRs into the BlackBerry line. A new software add-on will let the smartphones both view a programming guide from the device as well as schedule the TiVo box to record shows away from home, similar to TiVo's existing web feature. Neither company provides more specifics but explains that the necessary software should be available by the end of the year.

The two companies also plan greater teamwork with each other and indicate that they will "simplify mobile access to video content" through future software, though both RIM and TiVo again decline further information. However, TiVo recently has been investing heavily in digital video and lets users listen to podcasts, watch videos from Amazon Video on Demand or YouTube, and share content from computers over the local network.
