Netflix and TiVo: Maybe not together forever?

Peter Rojas

That dream team alliance between Netflix and TiVo? Might not happen after all, at least not how everyone expects. According to Hank Greenberg over at CBS MarketWatch the big problem is that Netflix doesn't have the web distribution rights to most of its catalog of films that it rents out and the probably won't be getting those rights anytime soon (at least not without paying handsomely for them) because they've already been sold to companies like Starz which are working on online movie download services of their own. The big question for TiVo has to be, what does Netflix bring to the table then, besides a good brand name?
