TVGuide.com to Include TiVo Scheduling9/11/2006 5:44 AM Eastern
TVGuide.com (www.tvguide.com) will offer TiVo online scheduling following an agreement between the digital-video-recorder vendor and Gemstar-TV Guide International.
The two companies also expanded their existing license agreement with respect to Gemstar-TV Guide technology relating to television-service providers.
The new online-scheduling feature, set to debut in early 2007, will enable TVGuide.com users to request, via TiVo's scheduling technology, recordings of their favorite TV shows on their TiVo Series2 DVRs from anywhere they access the site.
“We are excited to partner with a strong consumer brand like TV Guide and look forward to providing TVGuide.com's extensive audience the ability to quickly and easily schedule recordings for their TiVo from any Internet-connected PC,” TiVo CEO Tom Rogers said in a prepared statement.
