TiVo to return in United Kingdom

After seven years, TiVo will be relaunched in the United Kingdom with its just-released Premiere hardware, which features a Flash-based user interface and an optional QWERTY remote control.  They will team up with Virgin Media, which is developing its new offering that will be launched on Christmastime.

TiVo previously debut into the British TV market in early 2000 through a partnership with Sky and Thomson Multimedia, but certain issues broke down the relationship, which ended up with Sky having its own set-top box and TiVo terminating the sales of its hardware in 2003.

British residents should expect the new TiVo Premiere to have better integration with online content, linking their search to Amazon, BBC’s iPlayer, YouTube, and other standard broadcast channels.
