Hybrid TV, the Australian licensees of TiVo, is about to launch a new version of its digital media device, the TiVo 320, with a 320GB hard drive, doubling the 160GB that the original TiVo packed.
The TiVo 320 will go on sale on December 1, at a cost of $699 – the same price that the TiVo 160 sold for. The TiVo 160 will still be on sale, with the price dropped to $599.
As an introductory offer with the launch of the TiVo 320, the Home Networking Package, that normally sells for $199, will be included free-of-charge, in what Hybrid TV are calling Holiday Edition TiVo 320. The Home Networking Package adds the following capabilities to TiVo:
- Allows TiVo owners to transfer their Freeview TV recordings from their TiVo device to their PC or portable devices such as an iPhone, iPod Touch or PlayStation Portablel (PSP)
- Enables family photos, music libraries and home videos to be enjoyed on the TV
- Provides the ability to transfer and view recordings between two TiVo devices in the home
The TiVo Holiday Edition TiVo 320 offer will run until 31 January, 2010.
