Coming Soon - Control Tivo with Blackberry

TiVo and BlackBerry maker, Research in Motion (RIM) announced a partnership today promising the two firms will work together to make the BlackBerry smartphones work with the TiVo DVR products.  The first step of this will give BlackBerry users access to their TiVo program guide and in turn the ability to schedule television shows.  And it looks like streaming is a strong possiblity in the future.  As of now, there is no estimate on when the TiVo BlackBerry functionality will be available.  via FoxBusiness

SageTV users will note that they can already access their personal TV Guide, set up and manage their TV recordings today.  If you're interested in how that works check out my article on SageTV Mobile from June.
