Intel And TiVo To Offer TV On Laptops

The two companies plan to introduce technology to wirelessly transfer television content to Centrino notebook computers.

Two of the hottest technologies are expected to be combined later this month when Intel and TiVo introduce a TiVo To Go program that lets consumers download television programming and wirelessly transfer it to their Centrino notebook computers.

The TiVo To Go program will be unveiled in about two weeks, Sean Maloney, executive VP and general manager of Intel's mobile platforms group, said at the company's wireless and mobile conference in San Francisco this week.

Users of TiVo's personal video recorders will be able to transfer recorded television content to Centrino notebooks using pre-installed software. Notebook users will then to take the programming with them while traveling, he said.

Maloney didn't provide details. TiVo has offered the ability to transfer television content to home computers for a while, but it appears that Intel plans to let consumers make that transfer wirelessly.
