SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Yahoo Inc. and TiVo Inc. are teaming up to
blend some of their services, a move that further fades 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

And in the coming months, possibly before the end of the year, Yahoo's
traffic and weather content, as well as its users' photos will be
viewable on televisions via TiVo's broadband service and easy-to-use
screen menu.

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.

TiVo subscribers already have the ability to remotely schedule
recordings from the TiVo Web site, but this will give the DVR pioneer
a way to potentially tap Yahoo's large user base and gain some
much-needed new customers.
