Stock Watch: AOL Deal Powers TiVo

TiVo, Inc. (Nasdaq: TIVO) soared 12 15/64 to 33 51/64 Wednesday after the company, which makes devices that allow TV viewers to record shows in digital format, announced a three-year agreement with America Online (NYSE: AOL).

AOL will invest up to $200 million in TiVo, which will become an AOLTV programming partner. The two companies will work on developing AOLTV-branded set-top boxes, which are targeted for debut early next year.

TiVo’s technology digitally records programs without videotape, and also allows viewers to pause, replay and skip portions — commercials, for example — while watching live TV.
