TiVo: Coming to a Sony near you

— 2:12 PM on October 18, 2001

Sony has signed on with TiVo to put their digital recording technology into future products. C|Net reports:

Guenther added: "TiVo's technology will likely be found in televisions, DVD player and virtually any type of device where local area storage is one of the applications."

TiVo has generated a majority of its revenue from subscription fees for standalone recorders, but fees from licensing its technology may prove to be a larger contributor to the bottom line in the future.

Since this is a nonexclusive deal, hopefully we'll see more manufacturers sign on and bring digital recording into the mainstream. With this and DVD-R coming, VHS is looking less and less appealing.
Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
