Netflix/Tivo Consumer Device

Although I’m not at all looking, I keep a copy of my resume up online. Why? Because sometimes a recruiter will call and drop a nice nugget of info to you. That’s exactly what happened this morning. I got a call from a recruiter for Netflix looking for Linux programmers. There’s been speculation going on for a little while about how Netflix will deliver their on demand download service. The recruiter said the project included a team of engineers from ReplayTV, AOL, and Tivo to work on a consumer device. So I looked around on their site, and here’s the job listing. So who knows if it’ll see the light of day, but it would appear that the Tivo/Netflix collaboration that was floating around during 2004 is still in process.
