Rocketboom is now officially launched on TiVo boxes! The first file has propagated and we have been getting comments from regular subscribers that it looks good.
There are a lot of people at TiVo who have worked really, really hard to bring this to fruition and I can't help but say thank you, this is going to be the beginning of something really, really big I believe.
TiVo automatically picks up a hi-res mpeg2 in an RSS enclosure and then redistributes our content to homes over I.P. A TiVo subscriber who signs up for Rocketboom can now interact with our content in exactly the same way that they interact with other content on TiVo, making the experience virtually seamless.
In other-words, TiVo has perfectly married and managed the traditional and contemporary distribution channels into a single back-end such that the means of distribution has actually become irrelevant.
One step closer to the ubiquitous screen.
Want to get it all? The best of the old and a slice of the new? TiVo it and let the games begin!
