Unbox for your DVR — order movies & TV shows from your couch!

Just in case you missed the news (on PVR Blog or Zatz Not Funny or Engadget or TiVo Lovers or the Unofficial TiVo Blog or HDTiVo’s blog), we rolled out a new feature this week for broadband-enabled Series2 and Series3 DVRs. Now you can order movies and TV shows directly from your DVR. Just head to TiVo Central -> Find Programs -> Download TV & Movies.

Oh, and yes — that menu item used to be called “TiVoCast.” We think the new menu item text is more descriptive.

Check out the TiVoCommunity forum for more discussion, and let us know what you think!

Most of you will see a promotional menu item in TiVo Central starting this evening that will point you to more info. Or check out what we have to say about the new feature on TiVo.com.

    It may be more descriptive, but it also may be less accurate… Maybe Download Videos would have been more inclusive of the various web content you guys are syndicating. Not that it matters since the only revenue generating content, as far as I know, is Unbox – so it probably should get top billing. Whatever! Just keep those 99 cent specials rolling and hurry up with the HD. šŸ™‚

    Hi Stephen:

    I just stumbled across your blog whilst researching Social Networking and Communities (I’m planning to create one at NetApp), which led me to a book by Derek Powazek, which led me to Richard Bullwinkle’s blog which led me to yours which led me to some delightful photos of Sammie.

    Hi Garry! Thanks for stopping by — I’ll add more Sammy pics soon; was great to run into you and Marilyn at REI.
