The deal announced today between Yahoo and Tivo is great for podcasting and videoblogging.  I love the new distribution platform.  Expect to see user generated content on these platforms soon.

In a move that further blurs the lines of television and the Internet, Yahoo and TiVo have partnered to schedule downloads to TiVo boxes from any Internet connection.

Starting Monday, consumers will be able to schedule recordings of TV shows on their TiVo box from a special Yahoo portal, the companies have announced. Subscribers would need a valid Yahoo account with a yahoo.com e-mail address as well as a valid TiVo user account.

Additional content sharing between Yahoo and TiVo, such as traffic, weather and user photos, is almost assured before the year is out, according to Associated Press reports.
