Netflix, TiVo Promise New Service

Wired News: Netflix, TiVo Promise New Service So the rumors, despite TiVo’s denial, really were true after all.

One of the nice things that I’ve enjoyed about my HDTV TiVo is the ability to order really amazing picture quality pay per view movies.

Ordering movies via Movielink is so second rate as the quality is dramatically inferior to anything that you would rent on dvd or watch on HDTV recorded from HD HBO or HD Showtime or from pay per view.

How is it that TiVo is the first to bring us a HDTV recorder, has amazing quality pay per view downloads and will now be offering what would appear to me an amazing selection of high quality HDTV downloadable movies and Microsoft can not?
