Netflix available through TiVo

December 13, 2008

The deal announced in November has now become reality.  TiVo has just release software to users that will allow them to download 300 titles from Netflix.  Mac users already have this feature.  Netflix developed it own service Roku to stream movies to customers.

In my previous post about Netflix, I wondered if they weren’t “just a middleman that is easily circumvented?”  I feel that even more strongly now.  Netflix is going from an end to end service to a plug-in.  I don’t think its brand is strong enough to get swallowed up by the companies providing the service that Netflix plugs-in to.
