Another reason to go with a TiVo instead of a generic DVR: downloadable Disney and indie movies on demand.
The deals were actually announced earlier in the year, but starting today you’ll be able to download and rent movies from Jaman.com. They specialize in indie movies that people pretend to enjoy in order to come across as erudite and refined. Rentals there start at $1.99 per 24-hour viewing window.
Beginning next week you’ll also be able to download Disney movies (via CinemaNow), with prices there starting at $2.99.
Keep in mind that we’re only talking about standard definition here and that you’ll need a Series 2 or Series 3/HD TiVo to participate.
