Tivo further cemented its status as the couch-potato’s best friend as it announced and offered Amazon HD video on demand (VOD) earlier today. Tivo subscribers with a Series3, Tivo HD, or Tivo HD XL box can now stream HD movies and television shows, most with Dolby Digital 5.1 support.

Movies will run viewers $3.99 to $4.99 per title, while television shows are available for $2.99 an episode.

"Consumers are seeking affordable entertainment alternatives to an expensive trip to the movies. With HD downloads for movies and TV shows, TiVo and Amazon can transform any night into a memorable movie experience, all for a fraction of the cost of the theater," Tara Maitra, Tivo’s GM and VP of content services and advertising said in a release.

Tivo already offers Netflix HD VOD, and last month announced plans to offer BlockBuster OnDemand service later this year. [Via Gizmodo]
