A few days ago TiVo started to make downloadable content available not only to BETA testers, but all broadband connected TiVo Series 2 owners. Current free downloadable content included short CNet reviews, which are available from TiVo Central, but more programing is expected to be available soon. TiVo also is letting TiVo Series 2 owners download a free movie as part of a TiVo Research project. To get this free download go to TiVo Research’s page and enter your TiVo Central Online username and your TiVo Service Number. If you qualify, which most people should, then the movie will be downloaded onto your TiVo around November 23.
Note: This is not available to people who own DIRECTV DVRs and only service numbers starting with 110, 130, 140, 230, 240, 264, 275, 540, 565, 590, or 595 are elgible. You can find your service number either in your TiVo Central Online page or under System Information on your TiVo.
