BlackBerry to Have TiVo Access Later This Year
      #31375 - 09/12/08 11:27 AM

TiVo and Research In Motion (RIM) today announced a partnership to bring customized TiVo services to the BlackBerry wireless platform. Here is more info:

The new relationship brings TiVo and RIM together to develop a variety of mobile entertainment services that marry RIM?s leading BlackBerry smartphones with the content delivered to consumers through the Emmy-winning TiVo service. Initially, BlackBerry smartphone users will gain the convenience of being able to discover what shows are on and schedule television recordings while away from the living room and on the go. Future collaboration between the companies will focus on software applications that further simplify mobile access to video content.

"TiVo subscribers will soon be able to wirelessly control their TiVo DVRs using a BlackBerry smartphone - anytime, anywhere - and that is a powerful example of how our respective technologies can complement each other to serve our mutual customers," said Jim Balsillie, Co-CEO of Research In Motion. "As the BlackBerry smartphone continues its evolution as a modern lifestyle device, the importance of home entertainment integration will continue to grow and TiVo will be the key in providing consumers with greater flexibility in accessing television content."

?TiVo continues to transform and revolutionize the way people control and watch television and broadband video,? said Tom Rogers, CEO and President of TiVo Inc. ?RIM and TiVo share a commitment to great user experiences, which cause our products to become seamlessly integrated into the consumer?s lifestyle. We also share a vision for the future of mobile entertainment services and we look forward to a variety of future innovations as a result of this relationship.?

The first software application from RIM and TiVo is expected to be available later this year.
