yahoo-tivo.gifShandy King posted a thread at Search Engine Roundtable Forums letting us know that you can now use Yahoo! TV to program your TiVo to record shows for you. FYI - I do not own a TV, so I am not addicted to TiVo's but a lot of people are.

To schedule programming, visit http://tv.yahoo.com/onlinesch/tivo/introscreen.

What do you need to make this happen?

  • A valid Yahoo! account with a yahoo.com e-mail address
  • A valid TiVo user account
  • A TiVo Series2 DVR

So now what is the benefit of using Yahoo! TV over TiVo's interface?

(1) Yahoo! gets to associate your TV watching preferences and history with your Yahoo! profile (2) If you are a Yahoo! user, you have one place to manage this stuff

But number one is a biggy for bridging online ads and TV ads.

This was a long time coming, Yahoo! partnered with TiVo back on Nov. 7, 2005.
