Blockbuster is to be the latest online video-on-demand service to appear on TiVo DVRs.

The California-based company said it earned $3.6 million, or 4 cents per share, for the three months ending April 30.

He said tests were begun last quarter with bundling with HDTV set sales.

Jim Denny, TiVo’s VP of product marketing, said the service would come into effect “in the not too distant future”.
