Mac TiVoToGo Is Finally Here (Thanks To Roxio)
Update 1/8 @ 9:47AM EST: TiVo has updated their website which now includes a link to Roxio’s software. Apparently TiVo has been working with Roxio to provide this software. The following press release contains even more details.
“The demand for TiVoToGo continues to grow rapidly, especially as the use of mobile devices for viewing video becomes more pervasive. Now, through our joint alliance with Roxio, we are able to answer that strong demand by delivering TiVoToGo to the Mac platform,” said TiVo’s vice president of product marketing, Jim Denney. “By extending this capability to the passionate Mac community, TiVo continues to support our idea that “It’s not TiVo, unless it’s a TiVo.”‘
For a limited time if you purchase Roxio Toast you will also receive a free TiVo glo remote!
To celebrate the arrival of TiVoToGo for the Mac OS, courtesy of TiVo, customers who purchase Toast 8 Titanium either at Macworld Expo booth #314 or through www.roxio.com/macworld can receive a FREE TiVo Glo remote, a $49.99 value. This offer is for a limited time while supplies last.
Dave Zatz got the scoop on the latest version of Roxio Toast for the Mac. According to Dave, Toast 8.0 includes TiVoToGo capabilities so that Mac users can finally burn their TiVo recordings!
Roxio’s website has even more details on this product, here’s a snippet taken from the site:
TV Shows Anywhere You Want them Enjoy your favorite TV shows on DVD or on-the-go with Toast’s exclusive support for TiVo and EyeTV digital video recorders. Watch your TiVo recorded shows on your Mac, burn your shows to DVD or DivX disc, or convert for your iPod, PSP or other portable player. Fred & Barney. Gilligan & The Skipper. Ernie & Bert, and now… TV & Toast – another perfect TV pair
This is great news for all you Mac maniacs. It’s disappointing that TiVo couldn’t deliver on their promise but at least another company has stepped up and taken the lead.
I plan on getting a copy of Roxio Toast once I purchase my Mac. If somebody else tries it out before me let me know. I’m interested to hear how it works….
