YouTube Streamed Through TiVo

Just what the television industry needs, increased competition from those wacky YouTube videos that 68 million people watch every month. Only now, it will be easier than ever to view them on television screens. Beginning Thursday, TiVo will offer thousands of its subscribers the ability to stream YouTube videos onto their television sets through their broadband-enabled TiVo boxes. It's TiVo's first deal for streaming online content, though the company has partnerships with 60 Internet sites that provide content to TiVo. Unlike with those relationships, TiVo users won't be able to store YouTube video clips, just watch them and bookmark them for easy retrieval later.
