DirecTV, TiVo To Offer HD DVR
DirecTV and TiVo announced that they have gotten together to offer an HD digital video recorder to customers. The DVR, however, will not be available until the second half of next year.
The companies have been in business together since 2000, and will now combine features from both services.
“Together we brought the TiVo experience to millions of DIRECTV customers and now we look forward to launching a next generation product that uses TiVo’s latest features to truly showcase DIRECTV’s broad selection of high-definition programming -- all stitched together with the elegance of TiVo’s renowned user experience,” TiVo CEO and President Tom Rogers said as part of the announcement.
