Unbox On Demand

Remember what I said when Unbox was first announced? Specifically:Right now it is not possible to shop for videos directly from the TiVo itself, but I believe we’ll see that added down the road. It would even be possible for a 3rd party to write an HME application that allowed you to browse the Unbox site and then order videos, all with the TiVo remote. (Anyone want to get started on that? ;-) )

Well, guess what? Someone, namely Doug Swallow, got started on that. There is also a thread on TiVoCommunity.com with a number of screen shots – and a second thread with more info.

This an an HME application that you install on your local PC. You access it from the Music, Photos, Products, & More screen on your TiVo and it allows you to order Unbox movies from the TiVo without going to the PC. This is a very early release, so it may not be fully stable, but it is usable.

Rock on Doug!
