TiVo Inc. subscribers will be able to program their digital video recorders remotely by logging on to America Online under a new service TiVo and AOL plan to announce today.
One of the coolest things about Replay is the ability it gives its customers to program recording lists on the web, so it’s nice to see TiVo catching-up, and it’s also smart of them to cultivate their AOL connection:
So maybe what AOL/Time-Warner needs to do is forget about the Internet and broadband, and get themselves some nice Tivo-type property to really make the synergy work. Then they can upgrade the book value of their “good will” instead of sending out bad vibes and like, bumming everybody out, you know.
…as somebody said.
