TiVo makes deal to bring indie movies to its set top box Jaman, the large distributor of independent films has said that they have struck a deal with TiVo to offer thousands of its titles from its extensive catalog to the DVR maker's subscribers.
The deal would be very similar to the deal Amazon's Unbox has in place with TiVo customers. Jaman's catalog of movies will be downloadable to the DVR in SD or HD. The deal should significantly add to the titles available to TiVo customers.

Jaman has been recently extending the reach of the service making it available on PC, Macs, SanDisk's TakeTV, through DivX and now on TiVo's DVR service.

The movies from Jaman will be either rentable or up for purchase starting at $1.99 and users will need "a broadband-connected Series2 or Series3 DVR in order to use the service."

Why can they not just create something new rather than just expanding their content. If they expand their content make it something that we have not seen before not something that you get from a competitor.
