The Amazon Unbox on Tivo channel is now live. Tivo owners can rent/buy anything from the Amazon Unbox store. Hurry up and get your copy of The Lake House today!
In February, I wrote of the Customflix.com “back door” option for Amazon Unbox. Now anyone with a DVD master can publish PPV directly to Tivo owners.
This is part of the “Multiple Paid Content Mechanisms” predicted back in 2006. The question now is simple – is “Tivocasting” a viable channel?
I sold my Tivo as part of the Year of Living Digitally experiment so I can’t tell you how smooth the interface is – but we know how Tivo does things.
And because this is Tivo, I’m thrilled with what it means to all of us.
