MediaPost Publications - TiVo Rolls Out Podcasting, Other Broadband Apps - 01/24/2006

TiVo Rolls Out Podcasting, Other Broadband Apps - 01/24/2006: "TIVO THIS WEEK IS WRAPPING up the rollout of a host of broadband services that include access to podcasts, games, music, and online movie ticketing, through the user's living room TV.
The program, which began in November, gives TiVo users who also have broadband connections the ability to access any podcast on the Web, and play the audio on their TV sets.

Jim Denney, TiVo's vice president of product marketing, said the offerings were a 'good fit' for the company. 'These are things that are media-oriented,' he said, adding that podcasts are the type of product 'that you might take with you, but you also might want to have access to these in the living room.'
The podcasts are read through an RSS application designed in-house by TiVo. The podcasts are played, not recorded, so they don't use any storage space on the device hard drive, and any ads placed in the bit stream are left intact. "

Tivo should take this software firm over. They make a Tivo-like web browser. It's pretty neat.
