TiVo has announced viewers will now be able to watch YouTube videos on the TV via a TiVo DVR.
TiVo and You Tube have formed a partnership to allow broadband-connected subscribers with TiVo Series3 and TiVo HD DVRs, to access YouTube content on demand.
"With YouTube content now available on TiVo, on top of all the movies, music videos, songs and TV shows that are simply unavailable on cable and satellite, TiVo subscribers have more choice on their TV sets than any other TV viewers in the world," said Tom Rogers, President and CEO of TiVo Inc.
"YouTube brings video where the audience is—across the Web and onto mobile devices, TVs and video games," said Hunter Walk, YouTube's Director of Product Management. "The partnership with TiVo extends our ability to make YouTube accessible anywhere and lets people watch what they want, when they want it."
Soon, users will also be able to log into their YouTube accounts directly through the TV.
TiVo will begin DVR software upgrades over the next few weeks to make You Tube content available on the platform.
