Yahoo, TiVo join to blend TV, Web services

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:46 am

Yahoo Inc. and TiVo Inc. are teaming up to blend some of their services, a move that further fades the lines between offices and living rooms, TVs and PCs.

Under a partnership to be announced Monday, the two will collaborate to offer Yahoo’s Internet-based content and services through TiVo’s digital video recording devices.

Starting Monday, users of Yahoo’s TV page will be able to click on a record-to-TiVo button directly from a television program listing to remotely schedule recordings.

And in the coming months, possibly before the end of the year, Yahoo’s traffic and weather content, as well as its users’ photos will be viewable on televisions via TiVo’s broadband service and easy-to-use screen menu.
