NEW YORK - DirecTV is preparing to offer a digital video recorder
(DVR) service in mid-2005 that could duplicate virtually every feature
now available from current partner TiVo, plus provide video on demand
similar to what's offered on cable, say executives of the company
preparing the software.

About the only TiVo function the new service will not have, they say,
is the ability to jump over commercials. That's an unadvertised TiVo
feature users can activate with programming instructions widely
available on the Internet.
