TiVo Inc. said Tuesday that it is taking steps toward allowing its PVRs to access content from the Web. The personal-video-recorder company will also allow subscribers access to certain multimedia options it once reserved for premium customers.
TiVo's representatives confirmed that they are working toward a future that will allow their personal-video-recorder devices to access music and movies downloaded from the Internet. Currently, the boxes only allow content to be recorded from television broadcasts, although a Home Media option also allows those recordings to be scheduled via the Internet. Users may also view pictures and listen to music stored on a PC.
