Newsweek: Netflix and TiVo to announce partnership, offer downloadable movies | PVRblog: “I’m curious how TiVo will be able to do this, given that it’s likely to cut into movie studio profits from the sale of DVDs to home customers and video stores. Will Netflix be required to only allow x number of copies of a film downloaded, where x equals the physical DVDs they have purchased? Will they only let you have another movie when you delete the film off your TiVo?”
Sounds like a very nice strategy on the part of both companies. Netflix should just save some time though and just buy TiVo.
