TiVo Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Intel Corp. have announced an upgrade to the TiVoToGo service, enabling people to move TiVo content stored on a Microsoft Windows XP-based PC onto Windows Mobile-based Portable Media Centers as well as newer Windows Mobile-based Smartphones and Pocket PCs.
Users will have the ability to transfer TV shows stored on their TiVo Series2 digital video recorders to a Windows XP-based PC for transfer to and playback on Windows Mobile-based devices such as Portable Media Centers and newer Windows Mobile Smartphones and Pocket PCs.
"TiVo has always been at the forefront of putting consumers in charge of their entertainment experience," said Matt Wisk, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, TiVo. "Now, by extending the TiVoToGo service to support multiple Windows Mobile-based devices, TiVo is enabling our subscribers to watch their favorite TV shows whenever and wherever they want. TiVo and its valued business associates will continue to deliver an entertainment experience unmatched by generic cable or satellite DVRs (digital video recorders)."
Some of American Airlines' most frequent travelers will be attending the TiVoToGo premier on a two-hour chartered flight out of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on 8 June. These customers will be presented with Portable Media Centers loaded with TiVo content via the expanded TiVoToGo service.
