TiVo is completing its rollout of various broadband services - including access to podcasts, games, music and online movie ticketing - via television sets, allowing users to play podcasts on their TVs, for example, reports MediaPost. The podcasts are not recorded and so don't take up storage space on DVR's hard drive; ads that might in the podcast are left intact.
TiVo developed the RSS application via which the podcasts are read.
Other services include Live365's hundreds of internet radio stations. A set of services from Yahoo is also offered, including access to Yahoo Photos via TV and weather and traffic reports; those services are ad-free, for now, but Yahoo may decide to place ads.
