TiVo’s Australian website updated – a hint of Flickr support coming?

While it has been up since at least June, and it has been updated before, TiVo’s Australian website has more meat now. Based on the ‘What is TiVo?’ page, it certainly sounds like Australians will be receiving most of the features we enjoy in the US. Of course, they’ll be receiving Season Passes and Wishlists, it’d hardly be TiVo without those. But they’ll also be getting online scheduling (via Yahoo!7 TV), music and photo access from a local PC, Universal Swivel Search, KidZone, and Multi-Room Viewing (in a future release). And, I think this sounds an awful lot like they’ll have some form of TiVoCast:

TiVo® connects you to the world of entertainment from free to air broadcasters & the internet. Your TiVo® will bring you the best entertainment from TiVo®’s content partners – some of the leading names in Australian entertainment.

The ‘TiVo Features’ page makes it clear they’ll have some form of Home Media Engine:

Enjoy more than just TV with your broadband connection. Easily access podcasts,Yahoo!® Weather, Flickr, and share digital photos.

Interesting mention of Flickr, since US units had support for Yahoo! Photos, which they recently shut down after having acquired Flickr. This would seem to indicate TiVo is working with Yahoo! on a new Flickr application, that we’ll hopefully see in the US as well.

However, no mention of anything like TiVoToGo/TiVoToComeBack.

    Nice Flickr catch! It all looked so regurgitated from the US content, I didn’t bother reading.
