Will You Download Movies and TV Shows From Amazon Unbox on TiVo?

Did you hear the news about Amazon and TiVo teaming up to create Amazon Unbox on TiVo? The service will allow TiVo subscribers the ability to play movies and television shows either rented or purchased on its site and will cost $1.99 for television episodes and between $9.99 and $14.99 for most movies. Rentals start at $1.99.



Download times will vary depending on your actual Internet connection speed and the length of the video. With a fast broadband connection (5 Mbps), a movie can download in about an hour, while a 1-hour TV episode can download in about 30 minutes. However, on a slower broadband connections (less than 1 Mbps), a movie could take up to 5 hours. What do you think about this new service? Will you be jumping on the Amazon Unbox on TiVo train?
