This whole \"it's web video, on your TV!\" space is getting crowded fast, but we'd say there's certainly room from this new \"PoD\" device from Verismo Networks. Not content to merely concentrate on one form of content, the PoD can handle content from YouTube, BitTorrent, vTap, Amazon Unbox, CinemaNow,

We had a pretty good feeling this would go down eventually, but we certainly didn't see a confirmation (of sorts, anyway) coming this soon. Jim Denney, VP of product marketing at TiVo, has been quoted as saying that although the current version of Amazon Unbox can't process high-definition content,

There's nothing like a random question on a marketing survey to get the old rumor juices flowing, but we wouldn't be at all surprised to find that Amazon is working on HD Unbox rentals, as hinted by the latest survey sent to customers. Respondents were asked to prioritize several interesting poten

Hot on the heels of Mojo's decision to add more finance-based programming to its 2008 lineup comes word that the network's original content will be made available through Amazon Unbox. Apparently, the two outfits worked things out so that Unbox users can now get ahold of After Hours with Daniel, Th

Apparently a move to Amazon Unbox isn't all that's in the cards for NBC's lineup of television programming, newly free of those iTunes shackles. The company is going to start testing a new NBC Direct service in October with full, free downloadable episodes which can be stored up to seven days on Win

Naturally, there had to be somewhere to pick up those episodes that iTunes won't be delivering to the Heroes-addicted and \"Jim and Pam forever\" types, and it looks like NBC has picked Amazon Unbox to do the honors, and has started selling select shows already. If this wasn't a good defense for lift

It's no secret that TiVo isn't a blue-chip stock, in fact the real question each quarter is usually, how much did they lose this time? This is a big reason why we have our TiVo Deathwatch, but it's not all bad for TiVo and since they make it nearly impossible for someone to buy them out, we like to

A couple of lines in a settings file does not a partnership make, but some enterprising hackers at the Archos Community Forums have discovered evidence that Archos is planning at least one large-scale content deal when the super-hot 605 launches in the US.

When TiVo first brought Amazon Unbox movies to our Series3, we wondered why we still had to log on to Amazon.com to order our flicks. We weren't the only ones and some even took matters into their own hands by creating a home grown application. Well TiVo and Amazon finally got the hint and today an

Wouldn't these two be a pair, teamed up against Blockbuster's video rental service and the iTunes gorilla? Wall Street seems to think so, and rumors today of Amazon having plans for acquiring Netflix sent shares of the former to heights not seen since 2004. Unfortunately, the fun didn't last long,

When TiVo first started to support Amazon Unbox last month one of the biggest complaints was that you could only buy content via Amazon.com and not from the TiVo interface. While some people could care less, since they are never more than five feet away from a computer, others had to take action in
