Los Gatos-based Netflix is not the only media company that is allowed to have fun.
Tuesday Alviso-based TiVo put itself back in the headlines by striking a deal to host Hulu content on its its video recording devices.
TiVo's top level subscribers will be able watch video through Hulu's plus service, which streams television shows from NBC and Fox among other stations after they have aired on television.
The move is a coup for the Alviso-based company who has been struggling through difficult financial times.
The company also recently inked a deal with Oakland-based Pandora Media to stream Internet radio through its TiVo boxes.
But to get the content, you'll have to own either TiVo's $299.99 Premiere or $499.99 Premiere XL DVRs.
