TiVo users can get movies from Amazon

Users of TiVo digital video recorders will be able to order movies from Amazon.com directly from their TiVo boxes starting today.

The two companies partnered in March to deliver Amazon's Unbox download service to TiVo DVRs, but the feature required customers to place their orders on a computer through Amazon's Website. The new "Buy on TV" feature allows TiVo users to search Amazon's catalog and rent or purchase videos using their TiVo's remote control. The feature works for owners of TiVo Series2 and Series3 broadband-connected DVRs. (info from The Associated Press)
