TiVo Gets Blockbuster OnDemand Rentals and Purchases Soon

TiVo just acquired the right to stream Blockbuster's OnDemand content through Series2, Series3, HD and HD XL boxes.

It's a joint venture with cross-marketing involved, but all you need to know is that you'll be able to rent and buy Blockbuster's OnDemand movies directly from your TiVo at some later date.

The image above is from Blockbuster's streaming box, so our guess is that TiVo's solution will look more TiVo-y. We wish Blockbuster would make their digital content more like Netflix's streaming solution—you know, more free—but this is better than nothing.
