Like most people that have ever used a DVR, it’s one thing I can’t live without. I have never used a TiVo DVR, but I can see where it might be superior to the DVR I have with my satellite provider. If you have a TiVo and enjoy Blockbuster On Demand you will not like this news.
Blockbuster has announced that as of March 31 it will no longer support TiVo with its on-demand service. For now, the app is still available on various TiVo DVR’s but the registration site for new sign-ups on the Blockbuster website is gone. Presumably, that means if you haven’t downloaded the app and activated previously you’re out of luck even if it’s not March 31.
Blockbuster says that is changing its technology platform and that change is what is causing the end of support for TiVo. Later this year updates will be coming to TiVo for YouTube and for Netflix. The more popular streaming services will continue to be supported.
