PacificNet iMobile, TiVo bring PVRs to China

Darren Murph

We Americans have seen TiVo go just about everywhere, but thanks to a newfound partnership between PacificNet iMobile and TiVo Greater China, the timeshifting icon is headed overseas. Under the deal, PacificNet iMobile will promote and distribute TGC products in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, as well as other major cities in China, and it will reportedly "expand its marketing channel from online sales to user trial activities." Sadly, no details regarding hardware specifications, rollout dates, or pricing were mentioned, but it was noted that "Phase 1" would cover five "major" cities, while we'd expect the more distant regions to get serviced shortly thereafter.
