It looks like this was a goof – the email wasn’t supposed to go out – but it reveals some of the interesting industry-specific uses for a TiVo. It is possible to create industry specific ‘channels’ delivered via IP to TiVo users. You could have new ‘networks’ dedicated to specialized content for training, product information, conferences, etc.
