TiVo has announced that it will be making Disney movies available for download on-demand later this year through a new deal with online content distributor CinemaNow.
The deal, which was struck with both Disney-ABC and CinemaNow, will allow Series2 and Series3 subscribers to download the Disney movies as 24 hour rentals. There was no word on price, or a launch date for the on-demand downloads but we will keep you updated.
The new deal will add to TiVo’s already extensive 30,000 title catalog from Amazon Unbox, Music Choice, and Jaman.
TiVo currently has to compete against set top boxes from powerhouses such as Netflix, Apple, and Vudu and there has been word that Blockbuster and DirecTV are both looking into set-top boxes for consumers to stream movies directly to their TVs.
