Wow, the partnership deal that began in 2004 and died in 2005 is back from the dead to finally happen in 2008. The New York Times reports that Netflix's stream now movies that are currently available on devices like their Roku player and their website will finally be coming to TiVo HD boxes soon.
The article states that it will go into beta this week and should be available to TiVo customers by December. It's a good idea and a long time coming, and I'm really looking forward to seeing this feature get released. Having purchased and used a Roku player to enjoy some of Netflix's library on my TV, I will definitely enjoy seeing the same films on my TiVo directly, removing one more device from my media cabinet. Kudos to TiVo and Netflix for finally making this deal work.
