video recording pioneer TiVo Inc.has signed a deal with an online video
service, Brightcove Networks Inc., to deliver Web-based programming to
TiVo's broadband television boxes.
TiVo users will soon have not only TV shows to record, but also Internet-based videos from Brightcove's content partners.
Brightcove, a privately held Cambridge, Mass.-based startup, launched
its video publishing service in November. Its technology gives
established or small independent producers a way to create online
videos and then syndicate them through Brightcove's distribution
channels, of which TiVo has become the latest.
