If you thought TiVo was synonymous with DVR, you must probably think again. Best Buy has announced a new partnership with TiVo that will put a non-DVR enabled TiVo software on to the new Insignia HDTVs. There is no word on when the device would launch.
So why the deal? Apparently, the partnership will ensure that users may be able to access online content on their television without the need for a separate TiVo box. A DVR functionality may have been extra-appreciated but it is possible that Best Buy is looking at keeping the price low for this edition. It is possible that DVR functionalities may be offered at a later stage though nothing has been confirmed on that aspect.[via Zatsnotfunny]
