Will the Networks Promote TiVo "Permalinks"?
Ernie the Attorney notes that TiVo has adopted a new capability that they should have adopted long ago (TIVO now has permalinks):
So now TIVO lets bloggers create links to so that people who use the web programming feature can quickly program their TIVOs. Here's the concept. Let's say I want to recommend that you watch Meet the Press tomorrow (which is what Rick Klau is doing). I can post a reference to the show and the time, but now I can also create a hyperlink that allows TIVO owners to click on the link and immediately be brought to a screen where they can program their TIVO (via the Internet) to record that show. Apparently, TIVO adopted this idea at the urging of blogger George Hotelling. [links in original]
When will there be playlist capability? How about a one-click network schedule (for the Ernie Miller channel)?
Of course now that TiVo has provided the capability, will the networks be smart enough to promote it? Perhaps the networks realize that if you start encouraging people to share their viewing habits and recommend things to friends, pretty soon they will want to actually share video with their friends and we can't have that now, can we?
