Blockbuster OnDemand Coming to TiVo

Today both companies announced a partnership to provide Blockbuster’s OnDemand movies through TiVo in the coming months. The service will be available on Series2 and Series3 DVRs and will charge customers $3.99 to rent a DVD-quality new release movie on the set-top (rentals start at $1.99). TiVo owners will also be able to purchase movies to keep, like they’re able to do currently with the 2Wire MediaPoint box, for around $20 (with DRM protections). Other third party content providers on TiVo include: Netflix, Amazon Video On Demand, YouTube, Jaman, and some Disney movies through CinemaNow. [via / via]
