Amazon Unbox content to go HD on TiVo

By on May 12, 2008, 8:44 PM
TiVo users have been able to watch movies from Amazon.com’s Unbox service for over a year now, and while there have been rumors swirling for months that the movie buying and rental service was going the HD route to better compete with Vudu and Apple TV, it wasn’t until today that the company actually confirmed it.

In an article on TV Week, TiVo’s VP of product marketing, Jim Denney, claims TiVo and Amazon will announce HD capabilities “in the not too distant future,” adding that a few kinks – mostly bandwidth constraints – will need to be ironed out first. Sadly, no additional details such as pricing were given but a previous customer survey hinted an HD rental could cost $4.99, the same as iTunes.
