Looks like Tivo is upping their offering

TiVo adds Web, music, movies with Premiere
(CNN) -- TiVo subscribers will be able to pull Internet content, music and movies onto their televisions more easily with new devices the digital-video recorder company announced Tuesday.

Called TiVo Premiere, the boxes boast Web-connected capabilities similar to what rival manufacturers, such as Boxee and Roku, have unveiled. TiVo hopes the devices will help the pioneering DVR company shore up a slipping subscriber base by catching up with how digital-era consumers increasingly seek out entertainment.

Here's hoping DirecTV offers similar capabilities either via their existing DVR platform or at least via the "coming soon" DirecTivo implementation.

Couldn't find a press release directly on Tivo's site, they are featuring a giant count-down timer. Though did manage to find this:
