Amazon Unbox on TiVo - officially live
As reported in February, it appears TiVo and Amazon got all sneaky on us and officially launched their Amazon Unbox on TiVo initiative in the wee hours of the morning.
Users simply link their networked Series2 or Series3 TiVos to their Amazon account, select the movie or television show they wish to download at the Amazon Unbox store, and select their TiVo PVR as the download destination. Shortly thereafter, they'll find the title in the Now Playing list on TiVo Central.
Searching and downloading items directly from TiVo isn't something you can currently do, however, it's not too big a stretch to think this feature will become available in the near future.
In addition, a lot of the movies and shows can be rented or owned and are priced accordingly based on the option you choose. I find this to be a nice change from the rent only method of some other services.
Some of the "hot television shows" available as shown on the site include: 24, Survivor, Prison Break, Bones, My Name is Earl, and a couple of the CSIs.
As an added bonus, users who sign up for this service by April 30th will receive $15 dollars in movies and TV shows for free.
Thanks to MegaZone for the tip.
