TiVo (Nasdaq: TIVO) today announced the upcoming launch of TiVo Guru Guide(TM) recommendations. TiVo’s newest feature will be available to subscribers in the coming weeks. It allows TiVo subscribers to discover exciting programming and automatically record great collections of shows, recommended by editorial experts at some of the nation’s top consumer magazines and news sources. Guru Guide(TM) recommendations will create a virtual television channel from each of these authorities, while leaving the ultimate selection and choice to the consumer.
Since I don’t watch much ‘mainstream’ TV I probably won’t be using this much, but it looks like an interesting feature. What I’d love to see is users having the ability to setup interest based recommendation communities. So say disasterporn could have a recommended set of disaster related shows, etc. Kind of TiVo Digg.
