Amazon and TiVo, a possible partnership

Posted by Kim Peterson at 10:12 AM

For what it's worth, the New York Post is reporting that Amazon.com is looking to hook up with TiVo to let people automatically transfer their Amazon Unbox movie downloads directly to the TiVo box for watching on a television.

The deal would immediately clear one of the biggest problems with the Unbox service -- how do you get it on the TV? The Post has reported potential tech deals that didn't turn out; its report last year that Microsoft was negotiating to buy a stake in the AOL set off a flurry of activity that ended with a $1 billion Google-AOL deal. But an Amazon-TiVo partnership seems to make sense for both sides.
