TiVo is showing off a prototype at CES that we hope launches at some point: a Network DVR that uploads your recordings to the cloud so you can watch them anywhere, anytime.

Called NDVR for short, it brings the existing Roamio capability to the cloud. That means that users could in theory access their recorded shows from anywhere, via something like an iPad or Roku. The only barrier is operators, who will need to be convinced that it's in their interests to be involved with such a scheme. But given TiVO is offering the ability to target advertising within the recordings, that may not be the impossible dream you might imagine. Let's wait see. [Engadget]

Ya know.... if every TV show was simply available to stream on-demand... it would already BE in the cloud.

There would be no need for a TV show to start at the TV station... then sent to my house to be recorded onto my DVR... and then sent back to the cloud to some other data center.
