Yahoo, TiVo connect for Web, DVR work

November 8, 2005


Yahoo Inc. and TiVo Inc. are teaming up to blend some of their services, a move that further blurs the lines between offices and living rooms, TVs and PCs.

Under a partnership announced Monday, the two will collaborate to offer Yahoo's Internet-based content and services through TiVo's digital video recording devices.

Users of Yahoo's TV page will be able to click on a record-to-TiVo button directly from a television program listing to remotely schedule recordings.

Yahoo's traffic and weather content, as well as its users' photos soon will be viewable on televisions via TiVo's broadband service and easy-to-use screen menu on its digital video recorders, or DVRs.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Edward Lichty, TiVo's vice president of corporate strategy, said TiVo hopes the collaboration will set the foundation for a long-term relationship.
