Blockbuster VOD now live on TiVo


And the integration of online services continues…this time with Blockbuster teaming up with TiVo. Interesting to see, given that TiVo already supports Netflix. I like it though, give the consumers the powers and let them decide based on quality not on which box they happened to have with X service.




Typical digital movie pricing and rental terms apply to Blockbuster VOD on TiVo. However their content selection is somewhat limited (see the “New Releases” above) and “quality [is] on par with DVD.” Although I’m told both the library and video quality options will see improvements “in the short-term.” Until then, there’s little reason to give up TiVo’s superior (HD-capable) Amazon VOD
