Blockbuster and TiVo have partnered for a new service that will enable customers to download titles from the rental giant’s online movie library for viewing on their televisions, Reuters reports. The agreement, which will make some 10,000 movies available for download later this year, places Blockbuster alongside Netflix and as content providers using TiVo to bring video straight to users’ TVs. The agreement also calls for Blockbuster’s brick-and-mortar stores to sell TiVo DVRs.
