DVRs and RSS Need to Get Hitched
TiVo is cherry picking online content from Rocketboom, CNet, iVillage and others with its new TiVoCast service.
That service just whets the appetite for a true best of the Web/TV service. Netizens used to surfing the gamut of content would love an RSS reader built into the DVR that lets you subscribe online, and watch from the living room. Instead of watching your favorite vlogs and YouTube shows or listening to Podcasts on your multimedia challenged PC, you could enjoy it all on the big screen and stereo.
Advertisements would pay for the web-based content, bringing money to online entrepreneurs, and ability to view feeds would make DVRs even more indispensable. Someone somewhere will build this service.
