SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- TiVo subscribers will soon be able to program
television recordings straight from cell phones using the Verizon
Wireless network.

An agreement with Verizon Wireless, to be announced Tuesday, expands
on TiVo Inc.'s strategy to bring the digital video recording pioneer's
capabilities beyond its set-top-boxes and the television, and directly
to cell phones for the first time.

Dubbed TiVo Mobile, it's also the latest feature the Alviso,
Calif.-based company is introducing to help differentiate itself from
the growing number of rival DVR offerings from cable and satellite TV

A DVR records TV programming onto hard disks and gives viewers the
ability to pause live TV and fast-forward through commercials.

Terms of the TiVo-Verizon deal were not disclosed, but TiVo said
Verizon would be the first cellular carrier to offer the remote TiVo
scheduling feature on its handsets.
