I’ve been testing the Amazon unbox service with my two TiVo’s and have to say I’m impressed so far with the ease of use and performance. I’ve rented 4 movies and TV shows so far but haven’t watched any yet. I’m expecting about the same 480p quality I get with the Xbox 360 video download service (watched Best in Show from that service last night; awesome). The only thing I’d like to see is full integration into the TiVo UI; right now I have to order on Amazon.
So if I can land movies and TV shows directly on my TiVo, and I can stream from my server music and pictures, this makes the TiVo some sort of Apple TV competitor. And I thought those guys were dead meat. Rock on, TiVo!
