TiVo to Release Feature Length Movie for Download

Ok, I admit, the title makes it sound more exciting than it is. The deal is, it's a new feature length documentary featuring Robin Shou, whom you of course remember from the Mortal Kombat movie. Uh, you don't? Ok I don't either.

Anyhow, if you are the lucky owner of a series 2 box with a broadband connection, you are eligible to have your trusty TiVo download this kung fu action tour de force. Must... stop... sarcasm...

The movie is called Red Trousers. Seriously, Los Angeles City Beat calls it "a must see for Hong Kong action fans", and the LA Times says "pure delight". Maybe it's worth downloading. All you have to do is go to the TiVo site, enter your e-mail address and your TiVo service number, and TiVo will take care of the rest. Come November 23rd, or thereabouts, it will be downloaded for your enjoyment.

Seems like a step in the right direction. The process for downloading needs to be more seamless, and preferably not involve removing one's hindquarters from the couch. Choices would be good, too, but I think this is a step in the right direction. If we can get the deal with Netflix to go through, we'll be in business.

Full instructions from TiVo on how to download Red Trousres are here.
