Tribune TV Critic hooks up with Tivo

Tivo announced on Wednesday a new partnership with the Chicago Tribune to offer Maureen Ryan’s TV picks to users who sign up for the service in the Chicago area. Ryan is also hosting bi-monthly videos summarizing her picks.

If the move is successful, Tivo could develop more partnerships with other newspapers’ TV critics, whose jobs are being eliminated as the papers are cutting expenses in a tough advertising environment.
