PayPal Teams Up with Comcast & TiVo to Offer E-Commerce on Television SetsBy: Shawn Hess - June 12, 2012
Get ready! Starting this Fall some cable TV subscribers will be able to donate money and buy products and services from their television sets.
PayPal, EBay’s online pay service, has teamed up with Comcast Corporation and TiVo to bring the idea to life.
You might recall that PayPal has been working tirelessly to bring their service to more and more location, and this latest partnership should give them an advantage that will be sure to attract the attentions of their competition.
The TiVo boxes that deliver the service will feature the newest cutting-edge four-tuner configuration. PayPal has been working to get e-commerce to television since 2012, and the new partnership with TiVo and Comcast is the solution for customers who want the convenience they enjoy on their smartphones to transfer over to their television sets. It also has the potential to attract a whole new market of consumers.
Apparently, the plan is still in its early stages of development, but most of the infrastructure already exists to make it a reality. So, if you’ve been hoping for easier ways to part with your hard-earned cash, help is on the way. It’s going to be all too easy. Just point your remote and click “Buy”.
