Yesterday, at an event in NYC, TiVo was showing up previews of the new broadband features they announced recently, and Engadget was there.
They have a number of pictures and a little overview of the new TiVoCast features, the 2.4 Desktop Plus transcoding, etc. The One True Media site for uploading & editing videos, and then sharing them to TiVos, looks fairly easy to use. People and setup a Season Pass for your ‘channel’ and then any time you post new video, it shows up on their TiVo. It actually does seem like a very easy way for families to share video with far-flung friends and relatives. And any budding creative types could create their own ‘network’ to display their shows. I know I’d rather watch content on my TV from the comfort of my couch than on my comparatively small laptop screen… err, from the comfort of my couch. OK, so the couch is a constant.
