Now you can schedule your TV shows from anywhere -- if you use Verizon

TiVo has announced a new agreement with Verizon Wireless. The new Tivo Mobile service will allow subscribers to schedule recordings on their TiVo devices from a Get It Now equipped Verizon Wireless mobile phone. The TiVo Mobile service will go live this Summer at which point customers will be able to download the application directly to their mobile phone.

"TiVo Mobile will add yet another unique benefit to the Verizon Wireless Get It Now service by allowing our subscribers to be the first mobile users anywhere to schedule television recordings on TiVo using their mobile handset," said John Stratton, Verizon Wireless chief marketing officer. "As a powerful consumer entertainment brand, TiVo has the ability to help us attract consumers who value the leading multimedia capabilities Verizon Wireless offers."

The service is expected to cost less than $5 a month at launch. This is in addition to your TiVo subscription and your cell phone bill.
