TiVo has announced that subscribers can now download a range of foreign and independent movies to their broadband connected TiVo DVRs directly to the TV, through a deal announced earlier this year.
Independent and international film titles are available now on TiVo DVRs from the Internet movie service, Jaman.com.
"Adding even more movies to our already deep broadband library is an important step in delivering the most complete, original, and rich world of entertainment to the living room possible," said Tara Maitra, Vice President and GM of Content Services at TiVo Inc. "Our goal is to offer unlimited media content through one device with one easy-to-use interface, and with partnerships like this we can ensure that vision has become a reality."
Viewers will be able to access Jaman's library of internationally-acclaimed films in the categories of Indie and Film Festival Favorites, Best of Bollywood and Documentaries. Titles include Oscar nominees Girl with a Pearl Earring, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, and Supersize Me, as well as independent films such as Oil and Ice, Bollywood movies Devdas and Chokher Bali, and anime productions Ghost in the Shell and Robotech.
"Film fans are discovering high-quality, original films from around the world through TiVo's intuitive interface," said Jaman's CEO Gaurav Dhillon. "Browsing and watching films that aren't available anywhere else right from the comfort of your living room will introduce a new audience to truly great independent and foreign films. With TiVo, Jaman brings the film festival into your living room."
