TiVo Introduces New Service Feature That Allows Home Movies to Be
Sent Over the Internet Directly to Television Sets
- Nov 14, 2006 08:31 AM (PR Newswire)

NEW YORK and ALVISO, Calif., Nov 14, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via
COMTEX News Network/ --

TiVo (NASDAQ:TIVO), the creator of and leader in television services
for digital video recorders (DVR), today announced that it will debut
a break-through new service early next year which will provide friends
and families scattered across the country with an easy way to share
their home videos, by sending them directly to the television. Rather
than burning and mailing DVDs, or viewing videos uploaded on a
computer, friends and family will now be able to set-up their own
private channel to send home videos directly to a TiVo subscriber's TV

TiVo has partnered with One True Media (, an online
service that helps people easily turn their video and photos into online video
stories, to create a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for the person who
took the home movies and to whomever he or she would like to show them. After
uploading their home movies to One True Media, consumers will be able to edit
their videos online and will receive a personal TiVo channel code which they
can then distribute to other TiVo subscribers. With a few clicks of the TiVo
remote, and the personal TiVo channel code, friends and family will be able to
get a Season Pass(TM) recording that will deliver to their TiVo all the
current and future home movies from the video creator. Videos will be
displayed in the TiVo subscriber's Now Playing List -- the same location all
of their favorite television programming is stored within TiVo today.
