After installing TiVo's Desktop Plus PC software, users will be able to subscribe to RSS feeds of their favorite Web shows. Users will also be able to transfer home videos from their computers to their DVRs.
“Through the addition of new applications such as Web video, we continue to build toward our goal of making TiVo the one-stop shop for content, through one box and one integrated user interface,” said Tara Maitra, vice president and general manager of content services for TiVo, in a statement. “With our combination of premium content available through Amazon Unbox, millions of songs via Rhapsody and, soon, YouTube videos, we feel like we’re connecting consumers to entertainment in a way no one else can.”
The Web-video application only works with Windows PCs for now, although the company said it is working with Roxio to enable Mac compatibility.
