I’m not sure when it appeared, but there is a new page on TiVo’s website for ‘TiVo Design’. TiVo Design is the branding TiVo, and their partners, are using for non-DVR TiVo products. As the text on the page states:
TiVo is proud to introduce a new way to share some of the best elements of the TiVo experience with select partners. TiVo Design enables our partners to leverage our fun-to-navigate menu system and license some of the patented search technologies that have helped make TiVo a household name. While products powered by TiVo Design do not represent the full power and capabilities of a TiVo DVR, they go a long way to making your TV-watching experience easier and more convenient.
Currently the only product featured on the page, and the only one publicly acknowledged (that I can recall anyway), is the Insignia cTV sold by Best Buy, launched last month. Hopefully, given they’ve given TiVo Design its own dedicated page and they refer to ‘partners’ and ‘products’ in the text, we’ll be seeing more additions to the TiVo Design family.
