Amazon and Tivo take on movie downloads.

Tivo signed up with Amazon to provide movie downloads. Amazon via the internet to computer then wireless to Tivo. Finally. An easy not the Blockbuster experience. I hate Blockbuster. They must have the worst customer service. Doesn't seem to matter which outlet you go to either.

Now I don't have to leave home. And because the first step is the hardest, getting people signed up crosses a major hurdle for the companies.For Tivo it makes them relevant as a home entertainment hub. For Amazon it takes them deep into entertainment territory.

New things are always slow. But Tivo/Amazon have built foundations for growth.
