TiVo, Virgin make DVR deal in UK Popular DVR maker TiVo and ISP Virgin Media have announced a partnership this week, one that will see TiVo develop Virgin's upcoming HD set-top boxes.
TiVo will create a custom interface and in exchange Virgin "will be the exclusive distributor of TiVo service and hardware in the UK," says Electronista. Virgin has been losing market share to rival BSkyB in the UK and the company hopes the new generation of HD boxes will help them compete.

The boxes, besides playing back SD and HD streams from Virgin, will include online services such as the BBC iPlayer and

The set-tops should go on sale in 2010.

I'm sure it will be messed up in some way though (sigh).
