Tivo & Amazon team up to sell through your TV

I just have to share this with you, from the BBC dot.life blog.

“You gotta hand it to those bods over at TiVo land. First of all they invent a brilliant dvr for recording TV programmes that lets you skip adverts and gives you ultimate viewing power. Well now, they have turned that on its head and have incorporated a feature that lets you buy products you either see on a show or on a commercial all from your couch.”

Zattoo

FPGA RetrocomputingImage by svofski via Flickr I few months ago, I downloaded a program called zattoo, I ran it once, but given my main PC is in the living room, and is wired into the television, I didnt find much use for it.

However, my better half recently purchased a new Laptop, and after a spot of bad weather, our sky is broke, which means that we dont get any television in the bed room.

So, I decided to give it a go again, and I am quite happy with the results, a small selection of free to air channels, including all the usual BBC channels, ITV, Chanel 4, five and then a selection of lesser known channels.

You can download the program from their site www.zattoo.com, I recommend it, if you spent a lot of time looking at your monitor, and not your TV.
