As the battle between ReplayTV and TiVo rages on, Time Warner Cable announced a new deal yesterday that will give Southern California residents a reason to choose ReplayTV. Select Time Warner Cable customers in Southern California will soon be provided with ReplayTV digital video recorders and the free ReplayTV Service as part of their cable service.
This six month trial which will begin next month will include a special ReplayZone giving Time Warner Cable customers new and powerful ways to find and record the feature programming they want to view.
Time Warner’s hope is that users will purchase more pay per view movies and special events due to the fact that they will be able to easily find them record them using ReplayTV’s simple user interface. With ReplayTV, viewers can pause, instantly replay, rewind, quick-skip, frame advance and watch in slow motion their favorite TV shows and sporting events.
If the trial period results are positive, Time Warner may offer the service to all of their cable customers across the country. For more information on ReplayTV read the AudioRevolution.com review of the Panasonic Showstopper and visit ReplayTV.
