Great news. TiVo, the set-top DVR time-shifted media innovator, announced at CES yesterday that any video podcast will be able to be viewed on their boxes. This means that the DRM-free video you purchase from Cruxy or convert with Mux will be able to be fed directly to and watched on your TiVo box in your living room.
Here’s a bit more on this announcement:
Yesterday, at CES, they announced that all their subscribers will soon be able to select Internet video podcasts for playback on their set-top boxes….The new offering will be available under the “Season Pass” feature, and will apply the function to video content available through any RSS feed.
This is great news for independent creators and distributors, and is well timed with the ongoing WGA strike. The less steps it takes to get a video from Cruxy playing on the nice big screen in your living room, the better!
