TiVo ready to expand Just weeks after their patent victory over EchoStar, TiVo is getting ready to expand substantially, says sources talking to Bloomberg.
The DVR maker is in talks with PPV providers in an effort to "allow its recording directly or else to license out the technology for third-party hardware or software."

Other details are still vague, but it is clear the service will be different from online-based ones such as Netflix or Amazon VOD.

Additionally, TiVo is looking to have its service directly connected through Time Warner, possibly even creating a new Time Warner-exclusive set-top.

Negotiations are still ongoing with nothing set in stone.
