TiVo coming to Australia and New Zealand
Australia-based Seven Media Group and TiVo Inc. have signed an agreement that will allow Seven to bring TiVo to Australia in 2008.

Under the mutually-exclusive agreement, Seven Media Group will lead the creation of the digital platform to enable TiVo's digital video recorder and service, including the TiVo user interface.

The platform will be available for use by other broadcasters and broadband content owners to create an interactive, free to air digital terrestrial television offering. The TiVo Service will be available across Australia and will include recognized TiVo features like SeasonPass recordings and WishList searches and allow users to access broadband content on their TV.

TiVo provides powerful advertising capabilities and broadband video straight to the TV set by using digital terrestrial, or DVB-T standard, which has now been globally adopted and will represent more than 100 million homes by 2009.

The companies expect TiVo products and services to be launched in the first half of 2008. Financial terms were not disclosed. Details for the New Zealand launch were not disclosed.
