Los Angeles-based Gemstar-TV Guide and Tivo have signed a new agreement to provide Tivo's online scheduling to TV viewers using TV Guide's web site. The two firms said today that they will roll out a new online scheduling feature in 2007 that will allow users to schedule recordings of their favorite TV shows on their Tivo recorders. The deal extends an existing license agreement that Gemstar has with Tivo. The service will work with Tivo's devices and any Internet-connected PC. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
