The article focuses on the estimated time TiVO customers will take to transfer a television program from their TiVO digital video recorders (DVR) to a personal computer and to a media player that supports the MPEG-4 standard. TiVO will charge customers with one-time software download fees. The move of TiVO can affect the sales of ABC programming from its iTunes store. TiVO is also collaborating with Comcast Corp. to market its DVR to cable customers in the United States.
