TiVo Begins Video Downloads with Independent Film Channel

TiVo has launched a video download trial in conjunction with Independent Film Channel (IFC), enabling select TiVo subscribers to download IFC programming over broadband to their TiVo Series2 DVR. The availability of the IFC programming will be promoted to trial participants through a TiVo Showcase. Once a TiVo subscriber chooses to receive the IFC programming, the shows are downloaded via a broadband connection.

Limelight Networks is providing content delivery network services for the trial.

TiVo said its planning to add a series of broadband features for TiVo Series2 users beginning this fall.
