Netflix streaming is now available on TiVo Series3 DVRs. The feature was announced a several weeks ago, but the idea of a TiVo/Netflix partnership dates back to September 2004.
The service is effectively identical to the Netflix feature available on the LG BD300, Samsung BD-P2500, BD-P2550, Roku Player, and the Xbox 360. That means that existing Netflix subscribers can stream more than 12,000 movies and TV shows directly to their TV over a broadband Internet connection on an unlimited basis, with no additional charges beyond the existing Netflix and TiVo service fees. The available catalog is currently dominated by standard-definition fare, but the TiVos can also stream Netflix's still small HD library (about 300 titles).
We'll have a hands-on evaluation of the Netflix-on-TiVo experience later this week.
CNET editor Dong Ngo explains how the Google Wifi works and most importantly why it's so much more appealing than competing devices.
