1080i Amazon on Demand comes to TiVo
TiVo was definitely an early adopter with Amazon's movie download service, equipping its Series2 and Series3 set-top boxes with Amazon Unbox more than two years ago. As streaming video-on-demand has gained popularity, TiVo's roster of services has grown substantially.
Today, TiVo's version of the Amazon Video on Demand service gains more than 500 high-definition titles from major studios, including new-release films "Frost/Nixon," and "Twilight," and popular TV shows like "Gossip Girl," and "Californication."
Single HD television episodes are available for purchase at $2.99, and HD movie rentals cost between $3.99 and $4.99, and are available in 1080i, with a majority also offering Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.
