TiVo adds YouTube integration into its Series 3 boxes After it was initially announced in March, TiVo's YouTube player has finally gone live today, allowing for full streaming of all H.264 YouTube videos.
The update only affects Series 3 and HD TiVos users.

"With YouTube content now available on TiVo, on top of all the movies, music videos, songs and TV shows that are simply unavailable on cable and satellite, TiVo subscribers have more choice on their TV sets than any other TV viewers in the world, said Tom Rogers, President and CEO of TiVo Inc.

To access the feature, you must got to the Find Programs menu, in the Download TV, Movies, & Web Video selection. YouTube will now be one of the options.

"From this YouTube menu you'll be able to select from popular videos, recent videos or search for videos using the onscreen keyboard. Alongside each video there will be a thumbnail, title and a short description just like YouTube.com. Once a video is selected the player will automatically go full screen and start streaming within seconds. Since the video streams live there is no need to go the Now Playing List and there is no option to save the video there," reads early reports.
