New DVR may have video on demand

DirecTV is preparing to offer a digital video recorder (DVR) service in mid-2005 that could duplicate virtually every feature now available from current partner TiVo, plus provide video on demand similar to what’s offered on cable, say executives of the company preparing the software.

    of Tivo? I hope not… the interface is sweet, and it does sound like they’re trying to make it more user friendly in terms of installation.

    “About the only TiVo (Research) function the new service will not have, they say, is the ability to jump over commercials, according to the newspaper.”… which is my favorite thing about Tivo!

    whats your take?
