TiVo has added yet another channel to TiVoCast. This time it is Nite Fite, a new original animated series by Dan Meth and Mark Vitelli. You may recognize Dan Meth if you subscribe to the Channel Frederator TiVoCast channel, as he did the ‘Meth Minute 39′ series of shorts which recently ended. Nite Fite is also A Frederator Production, and it looks like characters from the Meth Minute may pop up as ‘callers’ into the program.
The format is somewhat of a spoof of political talk shows with ‘Penalty’, the liberal, and ‘Lloyd’, the conservative. As their site says:
Nite Fite! Penalty and Lloyd are unscripted, unrehearsed, and completely uninformed. Join them each week as they press hot-button issues and give America a dose of hard talk.
You can subscribe online or on your TiVo via Find Programs & Downloads -> Download TV, Movies, & Web Video -> Browse Other Videos -> All -> Nite Fite
TiVo is also teasing me (and others I’m sure). When I went unto Download TV, Movies, & Web Video I saw that I now have YouTube as a menu option. But if I select it all I get is:
YouTube is coming to TiVo! Soon, you will be able to browse, search, and watch YouTube videos on your TiVo DVR. Check back here on August 1st, 2008!
My TiVo still has 9.3a, no 9.4 yet. So it looks like they’ve updated the HME broadband video application but you have to wait for 9.4 to use it.
